The debate was the first time the Democratic field has been contained to one stage and one night of debates.
The biggest moment of the night came when Castro, during an argument over health care with Biden, appeared to take a jab at the front-runner's age by repeatedly saying, "Are you forgetting what you said two minutes ago" to the 76-year-old former vice president.
The debate also included tough exchanges over health care, though overall the debate did not feature as many heated discussions as earlier debates.
The Hill-HarrisX poll was conducted online among 371 registered voters between Sept. 13 and 14. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.5 percentage points.
