    Despite President Joe Biden’s insistence that he is staying in the race, his campaign is testing Kamala Harris’ strength against Donald Trump. The campaign’s analytics team conducted a survey this week that measures her performance in a head-to-head battle against the former president, the New York Times reported.

    It is seemingly the first time that the Biden camp is measuring Harris’ chances after the debate, though other pollsters have been acutely interested in her since the disastrous night. Three sources informed about the survey declined to tell The Times why the campaign conducted it and how they plan to use the results.

    The revelation comes ahead of a key press conference this evening, where Biden will host his first solo news conference in eight months. All eyes will be on the president during the unscripted event, which many consider a litmus test for his campaign.

    The Biden campaign on Thursday circulated an internal memo arguing that there is a “clear pathway ahead” and claiming there are no signs that another candidate would outperform Biden against Trump.
