Sen. Elizabeth Warren's, D-Mass., numbers have surged following the second round of Democratic presidential debates, with 32% of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters saying she has the best policy ideas.
Alternatively, though, only 9% of Dem voters say she is the best candidate to defeat President Donald Trump in a head-to-head contest.
The figures were released Tuesday by Quinnipiac University National Poll, which polled 807 Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters from Aug. 1-5.
Warren's support rose overall to 21% among Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters, while former Vice President Joe Biden notched 32%, a 2% drop since the last survey.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., came in third with 14%, Sen. Kamala Harris was fourth with 7%. South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, meanwhile, was fifth with 5%.
Warren's electability seems to be an issue for Democratic or Democratic-leaning voters. In a June poll conducted by Democratic digital firm Avalanche, 21% pointed to Warren when asked which candidate they preferred to automatically make president, while 19% tapped Biden. Biden took first when voters were asked who they would vote for if the primary election were held that day, with Sanders taking second (19%) and Warren third (16%).
The Quinnipiac poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.1 percentage points.
