Joe Biden made one of his most favorable impressions to date on this month’s debate stage.

According to a poll conducted by Morning Consult and POLITICO, a plurality of viewers — 23 percent — found that Biden performed the best at the Dec. 19 Democratic presidential debate, held in Los Angeles. Sen. Bernie Sanders came in second at 16 percent. This is the first time viewers chose Biden as the best performer since the first primary debate in June.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, meanwhile, a top contender in the race for the Democratic nomination, trailed behind her colleagues, with only 9 percent saying she performed the best. Mayor Pete Buttigieg (10 percent), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (11 percent) and Andrew Yang (12 percent) all received higher percentages. Only 4 percent of respondents put billionaire Tom Steyer as the top-performing debater.

But when it comes to candidates who respondents felt had given an “excellent” or “good” debate performance, Sanders won out with 53 percent over Biden’s 50 percent.

Democratic primary voters gave similar ratings of the candidates’ performances, with 27 percent saying Biden gave the best performance, 18 percent for Sanders and 12 percent for Warren.
