Support for Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) has utterly collapsed in a new poll that strengthens the frontrunner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The poll from CNN said that the Senator from California had dropped to 5 percent support from 17 percent in CNN's last poll.

Former Vice President Joe Biden maintains his frontrunner status with 29 percent of support.

This gives him a double digit lead over the two progressive challengers who are battling it out for second place, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) at 14 percent, and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) at 15 percent.

Harris had seen a jump in polling after she confronted Biden over his past statements on mandatory busing. She later admitted that she had similar beliefs as Biden.

Pete Buttigieg, the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, tied with Harris for fourth place with 5 percent.

Despite her precipitous collapse in the polling, Harris wins out over the president in a head-to-head theoretical election according to a poll from Fox News.

President Donald Trump responded to that poll by criticizing Fox News and implying that he could punish them for the bad poll numbers by pulling out of Fox News presidential debates.

"I think Fox is making a big mistake because, you know, I'm the one that calls the shots on that — on the really big debates," Trump said to reporters.
