A significant portion of the support for Biden and Sanders can be attributed to name recognition. More than eighty-five per cent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning Independents had opinions about the two men, Gallup reported this month, and about seventy per cent saw each favorably. Only forty-nine per cent had an opinion about Julián Castro, fifty-three per cent about Buttigieg, fifty-seven per cent about Cory Booker, and sixty-five per cent about Harris, leaving lots of room for these lesser-known candidates to define themselves. Their challenge is to be noticed, positively. History shows that it can happen. “The Democratic Party tends to try to kill off its front-runners,” said Jeremy Rosner, a managing partner at GQR, a prominent Washington-based polling and strategy firm that works with progressive candidates. “We saw with the first debate how quickly things can change. One good performance, one scandal, one misstep. Right now, boy, my feeling about the Democratic field is: Who the hell knows? Almost all of them are really impressive, and in almost all of them I can see their liabilities and how they get defeated.”
