In case there was any doubt de Blasio is a terrible candidate, only 15 people, approximately, showed up to a campaign event in Iowa Sunday.

The New York Post reports:

With more than enough empty space to accommodate his 6-foot-5 frame, the quixotic candidate took the floor at Parlor City Pub to a smattering of applause from the sleepy brunch set.

“Everything should be about our families, our lives, what everyday people are going through, what working people are going through,” de Blasio told the crowd, which numbered around 15 — not counting the press corps, campaign staff and Iowa state Sen. Rob Hogg, the event organizer.

“If we as Democrats are talking about that, we’re winning,” said de Blasio, before reiterating his campaign slogan, “Working people first.”

“Here’s the bottom line: We have a country that’s favored the 1 percent now for literally 40 years,” said de Blasio. “The rich have gotten richer. Everybody else has been pretty much treading water.”

The handful of individuals in attendance weren’t terribly impressed. They wondered about de Blasio’s campaign viability and were concerned his message was too divisive and appealed to a very narrow audience — working people.

Nationally, de Blasio is polling at less than a point and he’s not doing much better in Iowa.
