Dori: Jay Inslee’s presidential run over, according to new CNN poll
We now have our first national poll since the two Democratic debates last week.
CNN just released it, and in it, Joe Biden took the biggest hit. He went from 32 percent in May down to 22 percent. He’s still in the lead, but Kamala Harris jumped nine points into second place, from 8 percent to 17 percent. Elizabeth Warren sits at 15 percent, and Bernie Sanders is at 14 percent.
Everyone else in the poll is distant. Pete Buttigieg is at 4 percent. Cory Booker is at 3 percent. Beto O’Rourke is at 2 percent.
Here are the stats for the guy you want to know about — Jay Inslee. In March, he was at 1 percent. In April, he was at 1 percent. In May, he was at 1 percent.
And now that the nation has had a chance to hear from Jay Inslee, he has tumbled to 0 percent.
I don’t want to say “I told you so,” but the more people hear from Jay Inslee, the more apathetic they get about him. He’s not an exciting candidate. They just get bored by him.
It’s over for Inslee. When you had the nation’s ear, but the nation goes, “Umm, meh, you’re done.”
According to the AP, he’s spent 17 percent of the money he’s raised since his presidential campaign announcement. Since he likely won’t need the rest now, maybe he should give some of it back to the taxpayers who have been funding his private jet trips while he talks about climate change.
And by the way, he’s at 0 percent, and they do say the margin of error for this poll is 3 percent — so he could possibly be at -3 percent.
