A Morning Consult poll found Biden’s favorability has remained stable after the news broke last week.


The poll was conducted from Sept. 23 to 29, starting after the Ukraine story broke and continuing amidst the announcement of an impeachment inquiry and the releases of Trump’s conversation with Zelensky and the whistleblower complaint. 

Biden’s favorability has stabilized in the low-70s since the first debate in June. 

The former vice president maintains the lead in the Morning Consult Democratic primary poll at 32 percent support, which is unchanged from the previous week. When narrowed to voters in early primary states, Biden dropped 3 percentage points from last week to 31 percent.
