De Blasio has hinted at a 2020 campaign as his time leading New York comes to a close, even gathering 20-person-strong crowds when touring primary states. But if de Blasio's national showing looks bad, well, his hometown polling might be worse.
On average in polls this year (excluding polls of New York state), de Blasio has a 22% favorable rating and a 21% unfavorable rating *among Democrats*.
That's quite bad. The average Democrat has about a 3:1 ratio of favorables to unfavorables among D voters. pic.twitter.com/NI2MuLfQ0a
But NBC News' Alex Seitz-Wald makes a good point. Despite his only political experience stemming from leading Indiana's fourth largest city, critics aren't declaring South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg a longshot anymore.
Pretty nuts that people are laughing at the mayor of NYC for running for president, but the mayor of South Bend -- 1.2% the size -- is in the top-tier.
