We’ve got a long way to go on this presidential campaign cycle, but at least one news outlet has seen enough to declare Martin O’Malley “out of the race.” In fact, it says O’Malley’s chance at the Democratic nomination has been “pounded… into a fine dust.”
As far as Policy Mic is concerned the Democratic primary field has already been whittled down to two candidates: former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. Clinton is the decreasingly inevitable establishment candidate, Sanders is the surging progressive challenger, and O’Malley is… well… it’s kind of a two-candidate dynamic.
According to a recent poll from Quinnipiac University, Sanders has the support of 33 percent of Democrats, against Clinton’s 52 percent. That’s barely a week after a Wall Street Journal poll had Clinton at 75 percent and Sanders at 15 percent. Also, Sanders’s speeches have been drawing massive crowds, larger than any other candidate’s.
All you can say about O’Malley’s numbers is that they’ve been consistent, hovering under 3 percent since as far back as February.
