Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) is surging in the polls following a breakout Democratic debate performance that President Trump panned as overrated.

Harris was widely seen as the winner of Thursday's Democratic debate, especially following her criticism of former Vice President Joe Biden, who she went after for his past opposition to busing. Democratic voters clearly agree that Harris had a great night, as she jumped from 6 percent support to 12 percent in the latest Morning Consult survey released on Saturday. Now, Harris is tied for third place with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass). Biden dropped five points but still easily maintained his lead with 33 percent support.
