The poll finds Harris far behind Trump in a hypothetical contest. 47 percent of registered voters support Trump, while 45 percent prefer Harris, suggesting there is no clear leader in such a scenario.

According to seven senior sources in the White House and the Democratic National Committee, US Vice President Kamala Harris is the top choice to replace US President Joe Biden if he decides not to continue his election campaign. Biden’s faltering, sometimes inconsistent and widely publicised performance in the first debate against Republican rival Donald Trump last week has created a wave of concern within the Democratic Party. There has been speculation about whether Biden is fit enough for a second term. Apart from news agency sources, a CNN poll also claimed that Harris has a better chance of retaining the White House. According to the CNN poll conducted by SRS, Trump is six points ahead of Biden.

The survey finds Harris far ahead of Trump in a hypothetical contest. 47 percent of registered voters support Trump, 45 percent prefer Harris, suggesting there is no clear leader in such a scenario. Harris’s slightly stronger performance against Trump depends at least partly on broader support among women (50% of female voters supported Harris over Trump, while 44% supported Biden against Trump) and independents (43% Harris vs. 34% Biden).

Some influential Democrats have floated alternatives to Biden besides Harris, including popular Cabinet members and Democratic governors such as Gavin Newsom of California, Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan and Josh Shapiro of Pennsylvania. But these sources, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said trying to bypass Harris is wishful thinking and would be nearly impossible. If nominated as the party’s nominee, Harris, 59, would inherit the money and campaign infrastructure raised by the Biden campaign, the sources said. Of all the alternatives, she has the most name recognition and the highest polling among Democrats to be seriously considered as a candidate, the sources said.
