The mayor of New York City did not fare well over the weekend at the South Carolina Democratic Party Convention, where 2020 presidential candidates went to stump ahead of this week’s primary debates.
“15 people, including the mayor of Orangeburg, SC (the first person to endorse the mayor’s 2020 campaign) come to hear [Bill de Blasio] speak in Columbia, SC this morning,” said NY1 political reporter Grace Rauh Saturday.

She continued to rail against de Blasio, polling between zero and one percent.
“Last night at the fish fry, it was very apparent just how far behind the leading candidates de Blasio is at this point. No de Blasio signs or stickers or t-shirts. No campaign aides or volunteers pushing his candidacy,” Rauh said. “As one national political reporter put it to me: de Blasio is not running a campaign. He is just showing up to events.”

Rauh was referring to Rep. Jim Clyburn’s (D-S.C) annual fish fry, which is held every year at his state’s annual convention, and is an important event during presidential primary years.
De Blasio has struggled since his campaign began.
Big League Politics reported:
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.

Joe Biden Nominates Liberal Activist Neera Tanden as Director of Office of Management and Budget; “Zero Chance of Being Confirmed”
Tanden is a controversial Democrat.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden announced his nomination of Center for American Progress President and controversial Democrat Neera Tanden as Director of the Office of Management and Budget. Biden is yet to be certified as the rightful president-elect pending the outcome of litigation challenging the results in swing states, but this hasn’t prevented him from making personnel decisions.
Tanden, who is somewhat known as a Twitter personality, is a controversial figure in Democratic and progressive circles. She regularly used her position of influence in the Democratic establishment to attack Bernie Sanders during his 2016 and 2020 campaigns,
Tanden also became a target of ire for an incident in which she revealed the identity of an individual who was allegedly sexually harassed at the Center for American Progress.
However, it appears that Tanden’s confirmation as the Director of OMB, is doubtful. Drew Brandewie, a staffer of veteran Republican Senator John Cornyn, described the establishment liberal figure as having “zero chance of being confirmed” in a Sunday tweet.

Liberals went ballistic at the notion Tanden wouldn’t be approved by a Republican Senate majority after spending her career maligning the figures whose votes she would require.
In fairness to Tanden, the Senate Republicans are terrible, low-quality people.

Tanden was an essential figure in pioneering the ‘resistance’ branding of establishment Democrats during Trump’s first term.

Tanden appears to have deleted more than a thousand tweets on her personal Twitter account over the weekend, possibly attempting to clean any mines that could arise in potential Senate confirmation hearings.
