Despite the left’s unwavering commitment to the concept of “hope” itself, there are just some folks running for the presidency who needed to step aside.
That’s what happens when twenty-some liberal democrats all line up to take a stab at the Oval Office – some people are going to get left behind in the polling as the twists and turns of the election begin to arrive in earnest.
New York Mayor Bill de Blasio didn’t see much turbulence or tribulation, however. His campaign seemed very much dead on arrival, making his departure from the race not at all surprising.

His anemic campaign wasn’t moving the needle anywhere in the political world, including his home state.
The mayor failed to make the polling threshold to make the Democrat debate stage in September.
DeBlasio’s support hovered between zero and one percent in Democrat primary polls, despite participating in two Democrat debates and scoring hits on front-runner former Vice President Joe Biden.
Even a Siena College poll of 359 New York Democrats registered only one person in the state that supported his campaign.
De Blasio was famously booed during his 2020 campaign announcement, setting the stage for this entire vapid affair.
The NYC Mayor has long been criticized for his extended absences in The Big Apple, and hitting the national campaign trail certainly didn’t do anything for that reputation.
