Polling Shows Little Support for O’Malley as President

May 3rd, 2013 by WCBC Radio

The latest polling by Quinnipiac University puts support among Democrats for Governor Martin O'Malley in a possible presidential bid at 1 percent. The national survey found that Hillary Clinton blew away all of the other names on the list of potential competitors in 2016 with a commanding 65 percent. Coming in a distant second was Vice President Joe Biden with 13 percent. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo received 4 percent in the poll, followed by O'Malley, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, and Virginia Sen. Mark Warner all with 1 percent. Quinnipiac also found that if they took Clinton out of the picture, O'Malley's support would increase to 3 percent. Biden's lead would widen to 45 percent and Cuomo would receive 15 percent. A representative from the polling group said the numbers are not that surprising, and that in politics- they can shift dramatically in a relatively short period.
