NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Iowa didn’t show much support for Mayor Bill de Blasio in a major poll of 2020 Democratic contenders.

In fact, the mayor received the support of 0 percent of respondents in the Des Moines Register/Mediacom/CNN Iowa Poll released Saturday.

The Des Moines Register reports that not a single respondent listed de Blasio as their first or second choice in the crowded presidential field. That's out of 433 “likely in-person 2020 Democratic caucus participants” surveyed from June 2 to 5.


By comparison, former Vice President Joe Biden was the first choice for 24 percent of respondents. Sen. Bernie Sanders came in second, with 16 percent.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren received 15 percent and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg got 14 percent.

Sen. Kamala Harris rounded out the top five at 7 percent.

“We’re starting to see the people who are planning to caucus start to solidify,” J. Ann Selzer, president of the Des Moines-based Selzer & Co., told the Des Moines Register.

De Blasio announced his candidacy on May 16 to little fanfare in the city or nationwide.

Still, he’s expressed confidence he can win “the whole thing” as the race's “underdog.”
