De Blasio Leads Field: Most Disliked Dem Candidate!

Voters really don’t like Bill de Blasio.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is leading the Democratic Party primary field in a single category – but not the one his new campaign was hoping to lead.

According to a Tuesday Quinnipiac University poll, de Blasio has the highest negative rating among all of the 23 primary contenders. Forty-five percent of Americans view him negatively, and only eight percent positively.

“He’s been hammered by the late-night talk shows and I don’t think you can underestimate those shows as far as the impact they have on the how people feel about politicians,” Quinnipiac analyst Tim Malloy told The New York Post.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has a 48 percent negative rating, but a 41 percent positive rating. Several Democrat candidates, like Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) were left out of the poll, as Americans had not heard enough about them to decide whether they viewed them positively of negatively.

Former vice president Joe Biden still has a commanding lead over Democrats overall, and is the only candidate from any party with a positive likability score. Forty-nine percent of Americans view him positively, and 39 percent view him negatively.

Biden has moved further left in the early primary days, likely in an effort to content with far-left candidates like Sanders.

Big League Politics reported:

2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden stated on Wednesday that America has “an obligation” to dole out health care to “anyone” in need, even if “they are documented or undocumented.”

The former Vice President added, “I think that anyone who is in a situation where they’re in need of health care, regardless of whether they are documented or undocumented, we have an obligation to see that they are cared for.”

For that reason, Biden thinks “we need more clinics around the country.”

Biden also expressed doubt about President Donald Trump’s comments about the U.S.-Mexico border, asserting that visa overstays contribute more to illegal immigration than illegal border crossings.
