For the first time, Julián Castro has reached the top tier of candidates, sharing the fifth-place position with Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
Leading the polls, 29% of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents support Joe Biden and 23% favor Bernie Sanders.
Both Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren share 11%.
Castro registered in the low, single digits with only 4%. Following behind are Amy Klobuchar and Beto O'Rourke with only 2%.
According to a report from our partners at the Austin American-Statesman, Castro reportedly received a newfound momentum to his "standout performance" at the first two Democratic debates last Wednesday. Castro also raised about $1 million during what he considered the best fundraising days of his campaigns.
