Mayor Bill de Blasio says he’ll announce soon whether he plans to run for president.

“I’m going to make my decision in the month of May,” de Blasio said.

The mayor admitted that he’s had polls conducted in Iowa and it will have an impact on what he decides to do.

“I want to look at a lot of information. The ultimate decision, as I’ve said, is a personal one and a family one but of course it makes sense to look at other information,” de Blasio said.

Mayor de Blasio has been flirting with a run for president for month.He’s already traveled to Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina to meet with voters.

“I have never run for anything without intending to win and you can look at my track record. I was an underdog in everything I’ve ever been near and I’m not saying that with any hubris,” de Blasio said.
