Where it stands: Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris each got five-point bumps with Democrats coming out of the convention, compared with our survey a week earlier. (Biden’s favorability is now at 85% among Democrats, and Harris’ is at 77%.)
Biden’s net favorability with independents is still shaky, at -6 percentage points — but that’s an improvement from -20 before the convention.
Harris became a more familiar figure to American households over the course of the convention, but that didn’t move her ratings with independents.
Republicans’ negative views of both intensified, with Biden coming out of the convention with a 89% unfavorable GOP rating and Harris with 82% unfavorable.
