Apparently, spending tens of millions of your personal wealth on television ads across the country can make a difference.
In the latest Hill-HarrisX poll among likely Democratic voters and Democratic-leaning independents, newcomer Michael Bloomberg jumped from a 3% approval rating to 6%, leapfrogging Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) in the process.
Even though Bloomberg made a significant jump, he still remains far behind the frontrunners. Biden remains in the top spot at 31%, followed by Bernie Sanders at 15%. Elizabeth Warren captures 10%, and Pete Buttigieg is just behind her at 9%.
The numbers are significantly different from how the candidates stack up in early primary states such as Iowa, where Buttigieg recently overtook Warren for the lead.
