POLL: De Blasio Doesn’t Have One Single Supporter In Nation’s First Primary State
The Democratic Party has already had four nights of presidential debates and the primary in New Hampshire is just more than 200 days away — a blink in the political world.
But in a new poll, not one voter in the nation’s first primary state plans to vote for New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
According to the Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll of “likely N.H. Democratic primary voters,” 0.0% said they would “vote for or lean toward” de Blasio.
Then the pollsters asked respondents “Who would be your second choice for the Democratic nomination?”
Again, not a single person picked de Blasio.
Among the other candidates who drew a 0.0 — former Alaska Sen. Mike Gravel; Washington Gov. Jay Inslee; Miramir, Florida Mayor Wayne Messam; Massachusetts Rep. Seth Moulton; Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan; and former Pennsylvania Rep. Joe Sestak.
The poll found that former Vice President Joe Biden holding on to his top spot with 21.4% support. Sen. Bernie Sanders came in second at 16.8%, Sen. Elizabeth Warren was at 13.6% and Sen. Kamala Harris came in fourth at 8%. The poll surveyed 500 likely Democratic New Hampshire primary voters from Aug. 1-4, and had a margin of error of 4.4%.
The bad news for a Democratic candidate came after another survey in July in which former Rep. Robert “Beto” O’Rourke pulled a goose egg.
In a poll from Saint Anselm College in New Hampshire, a prominent survey that measures the mood of registered voters in America’s first primary state, O’Rourke pulled in 0.0% of the vote.
The Institute asked 351 voters “if the presidential primary election were held today, which candidate would you vote for?” and not one mentioned the guy that liberals say is the new JFK.
The poll had other disastrous news for the 46-year-old Texan. In February, O’Rourke had a 51.2% favorable rating. That dropped 46.3% in April, but after the first Democratic debates, his favorable ratings has plunged to 29.8% — a drop of 21.8%.
Sen. Cory Booker of New Jersey also plummeted in the new poll. He had pulled a 4.4% in April, but dropped to 1.2% in the latest survey. His favorable rating also skidded, dropping 12.6%.
In a wacky twist, self-help author Marianne Williamson, who had a bizarre appearance on the debates, was polling at 1.5% — ahead of Booker, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York.
