[Ed. – Anyone smelling toast?]
Former Vice President Joe Biden’s poll numbers have plummeted to new lows following his widely panned performance in Thursday’s debate.
Biden was polling at 27% in the RealClearPolitics polling average as of Tuesday evening — Biden’s lowest average since launching his campaign in April, and well below his peak at 41% in May.
The most recent polls following Thursday’s debate show Biden dropping even further.
Both polls show Biden, whose lead was already shrinking going into the debate, only narrowly edging out Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris.
Harris is surging in the polls after attacking Biden in the debate for his opposition to forced desegregation busing in the 1970s.
