San Antonio, TX–An ABC and the Washington Post published a new poll July 3 that showed presidential candidate, Julián Castro has moved into the top five polling candidates nationally at four percent.
The ABC/Washington Post poll meets the Democratic National Committee’s criteria for consideration under its debate qualification rules.
Following his performance at the first Democratic debates, Castro sat down with Rachel Maddow to discuss his campaign’s momentum. He highlighted that the four days following the debate were the best fundraising days of his campaign. He also noted that since the debate his campaign has raised more than $1 million and is closing in on the 130,000 contributor threshold needed to secure a position at the September Democratic debates.
The ABC/Washington Post poll follows the release of a poll from Univision/Latino Decisions in which Secretary Castro enjoyed the highest favorability margin of any 2020 candidate. He also doubled his support among Latinx voters, was the top choice for voters to tackle the issue of immigration, was the second highest candidate for overall vote choice, and was the highest polling candidate among 18 to 34-year-olds when asked which candidate won the debate.
