"It's largely been Warren's plan" not to fight with other Democrats on stage, said Christina Reynolds, a senior aide on Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, who noted that this contest featured lines of questioning on issues such as housing and abortion that haven't received much attention in previous debates this year.

"When we talk about the great struggles for human rights that Dr. King exemplified, healthcare is one of those struggles, said Sanders". "That's why it was so important that they and people across the country heard from the presidential candidates about the need to protect and expand reproductive rights, including access to safe and legal abortion, for decades to come".

Porter endorsed Warren in October after reportedly mulling between her and Sen.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is a distant fourth at 12 percent.

Quipped Harris from across the stage: "No, that's not true".

Gabbard denied these claims and said Harris was lying and trying to smear her because she had no argumentative basis against Gabbard's proposed policies.

"I want to stick up for Tom", Yang said.

"The impeachable conduct that we have seen, and the abuse of power that we're learning more about in the investigations, but just to be clear, the president has already confessed to it on television", Buttigieg said.

After a strong debate showing, Pete Buttigieg cemented his status as a genuine White House contender. However, he managed to spin this to position himself as the reformist, outsider candidate.

Requested if, as president, he would pursue a prosecution against an ex-president Trump, Mr Biden said: "I would no longer state it, and I don't tell it's a exact conception that we mock, that we model ourselves after Trump and utter 'Lock him up, '" he said. "There's just not opportunity to do so unless you really have to just speak over everybody and say, 'Hey, you know, ' insert yourself and say, 'Stop talking everybody, I want to engage Mayor Buttigieg.' It just didn't allow for it".

"America was founded on principles of liberty and built on the backs of enslaved people", Warren declared in a remark hardly imaginable in a pre-Barack Obama presidential cycle. In one question directed at Sen.

"Washington experience is not the only experience that matters".

Buttigieg was ready to answer Senator Klobuchar's statement against him. "But we vote every election", Carpenter said. "And if you think a woman can't beat Donald Trump, [House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi does it every single day". For a brief time, Warren even took over the top spot from Biden.

In the 2018 midterm election, 90% of black Americans voted for the Democratic candidate, according to Pew Research Center. "So I learned at a very young age what racism and white supremacy and Aryanism and all that crap is about, and our place together is that we will do everything humanly possible to end all forms of discrimination in this country".

The brief exchange with Harris was not the first time the two candidates have traded blows over race in debates, clashing over busing policies linked to school segregation in the 1970s during July's Democratic debate, though with markedly fewer laughs.

The poll finds Mayor Pete Buttigieg now has the most support.

However, it was Sen. Buttigieg had no black support in the state. "I've been one since I was 18", Booker said. "The onus is on the rest of the field to show that they can appeal to a broader segment of the Democratic electorate than they have so far".
