Failing Democratic presidential candidate Bill de Blasio struck an optimistic tone over the weekend; saying he simply has “nowhere to go but up” after recent polls showed the New York City Mayor at 0.00% in Iowa.
“I learned a long time ago about polling, it’s not where you start, it’s where you finish. Right now, I’ve got nowhere to go but up,” said De Blasio on CNN.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio continues to poll at 0.00% in Iowa, with a new survey showing the far-left leader gaining zero votes out of 600 local Democrats.
“How do you process this information that not one single Iowa voter named you as a first or second choice in this new polling?” asked CNN’s Ana Cabrera.
“It’s a poll of 600 Iowans eight months before the caucuses. This is just the beginning of a very long process,” said de Blasio.

The horrible polling numbers come as “wealthy” millennials flee NYC due to housing costs, massive taxes, and burdensome business regulations.
“Wealthy millennials are not interested in trying to make it in the city that never sleeps. In fact, according to a new study, they are actually leaving New York state altogether,” reports Fox Business. “Based on data provided by the IRS from the 2015 to 2016 tax year, a June 2019 SmartAsset study listed New York as the top state rich millennials are fleeing.”
According to the survey, “rich” millennials include those younger than 35 with an income of $100,000 or higher. Wealthy young Americans are also fleeing Illinois, Virginia, and Massachusetts.
DE BLASIO WHOOPED! Whoopi Goldberg Slams NYC Mayor to HIS FACE, Says ‘You Screwed the City UP!’
Left-leaning comedian Whoopi Golberg unloaded on New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio on The View this week; telling the liberal leader he completely “screwed the city up” during his time in office.
“Know what’s really pissing me off… you built 83 miles or protected bike lanes. I like bikes, I like people who ride, but I don’t think you understand the impact of taking something like Tenth Avenue, which is six lanes, down to two and a half,” Goldberg complained. “Particularly when you have a winter storm and you can’t move. None of that is moveable.”
“But you screwed the city up,” she added.

DE BLASIO'S DISASTER: NYC ENRAGED after Mild Storm Causes CHAOS, Calls for Mayor to Resign
Big Apple residents raged at New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s tepid response to a mild autumn snow storm Thursday night; with commuters sitting in gridlocked streets for up to 12 hours as roughly 3 to 6 inches of snow fell on the region.
Locals fumed at city officials Thursday evening and Friday morning while de Blasio feverishly deflected criticism; claiming “bad luck” and a series of poor weather forecasts threw the nation’s largest city into chaos.
“I’m tired, hungry, running out of gas and patience, I have to use the bathroom, I’m still stuck in traffic BUT I’m safe!” wrote a Democratic councilwoman on social media. “Only God to thank for that because of the HORRIBLE response to today’s snowstorm! This is beyond ridiculous and completely UNACCEPTABLE! Just terrible!”

“Somebody dropped the ball. No way a few inches of slush should bring the greatest city in the world to its knees,” added another council member.
