A landmark of sorts

My impression is that Kamala Harris is the first candidate to drop out who had an actual following. She may have only been at 3-5% in the polls, but she was a lot more people's second or third choice. (She might have even been mine!) The other drop outs so far haven't been like this. I wonder if Harris' people will migrate en masse to someone else (a +3% for anyone else could make a real difference for that other candidate) or if they will disburse among the others.

The most depressing thing is watching an acceptable candidate like Harris falter as Biden hangs on to his pile of supporters no matter how many times he embarrasses himself in the debates or completely flubs a simple policy question from a reporter.
