The first Indian-origin Senator, Kamala Harris has surged to the second position in the 2020 presidential run. It is a position more than 20 Democratic candidates are eyeing the White House for the presidential post, according to a latest national opinion poll.

But among women, Ms. Harris has a slight edge with 24% to Mr. Biden’s 22%. The race is similarly close for white Democratic voters, with Mr. Biden at 21%, and both Ms. Harris and Ms. Warren at 20%.
