Gov. Martin O’Malley, who is reportedly considering running for president, finished last among Democrats in a national poll gauging support for several possible candidates.
According to the CNN/ORC poll, a possible O’Malley bid for president in 2016 has the backing of just 2 percent of Democrats and liberal leaning independents.
Hillary Clinton was the heavy favorite garnering 65 percent support of those polled, while Vice President Joe Biden earned 10 percent, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren polled at 7 percent and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo received 6 percent.
Earlier in this year O’Malley finished last in a poll by New England College of New Hampshire voters. The state holds the first primary during both the Republican and Democratic nomination processes.
But the positive side of the poll for O’Malley is that it shows an uptick in support, at least nationally.
In the earlier poll O’Malley received zero percent of the people polled saying they supported the two-term Maryland governor.
