Iowa Poll: Mayor De Blasio Gets No Votes


Mayor de Blasio doesn’t get a single vote in a brand new Iowa poll.

The Des Moines Register/Mediacom/CNN Iowa survey talked to 600 registered voters and not a single person listed de Blasio as their first or second choice.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is the leading choice with 24 percent of the vote. Senator Bernie Sanders is next at 16 percent, followed by Senator Elizabeth Warren and Mayor Pete Buttigieg. All other candidates receive 7 percent or less.

Besides de Blasio, the only other Democratic candidate not to receive a single first or second place vote was Miramar, Florida Mayor Wayne Messam.

“There’s always been a question mark as to how many (candidates) can get any real traction,” pollster J. Ann Selzer said. “And we gave them every opportunity to show that they have some kind of constituency here. But there’s a fair number who, their constituency just isn’t very big.”

De Blasio was in Iowa this past weekend, becoming the first sitting mayor to ever miss the Puerto Rican Day Parade. A total of 19 Democratic candidates were in the state campaigning.

The mayor has routinely brushed off questions about low poll numbers by saying that voting is still months away.
