With the first debate behind them, the crowded Democratic field starts a hectic, four-week sprint to their next opportunity to face off with each other at CNN's debate in Detroit. A new CNN poll released on Monday shows a significantly tighter race for the Democratic nomination after the debate, with Sens. Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren surging and former Vice President Joe Biden's lead over the field shrinking. Biden receives support from 22% of registered voters who are Democrats or Democratic-leaning independents, with 17% backing Harris, 15% supporting Warren, and Sen. Bernie Sanders with the support of 14%. No one else in the 23-person field tested hits 5%. Over the next two weeks, candidates will release their second quarter fundraising numbers, which will indicate which campaigns have the resources to mount significant fights for the Democratic nomination (and which do not). Already on Monday, South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg's campaign announced he raised a massive $24.8 million, more than triple the amount it took during the first three months of the year.
