Demoralized Bill de Blasio quits his race, quits ‘electoral politics’ after horrific polls

Former New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio dropped his bid for Congress on Tuesday, a race he was losing so badly that the radical left Democrat not only got out of the race, he said he was getting out of “electoral politics” altogether — which may be the best indication he has a CNN or MSNBC gig in his future.

One thing is certain, de Blasio’s departure from politics could truly lead to a renaissance in America if enough progressives follow suit.

Taking to social media, de Blasio shared a video announcing his departure from a crowded field looking to represent New York’s 10th Congressional District. Recent polling has the unpopular former mayor at 3 percent and the poll was from the Working Families Party, which is just as far left as de Blasio. Even worse, 49 percent of those surveyed said they would definitely not vote for de Blasio.

“I’ve listened really carefully to people and it’s clear to me that when it comes to this congressional district, people are looking for another option. And I respect that,” he said in the video. “And I just want to say I love the people of this city, I really want to keep serving and I’m going to find a different way to serve.”

In the tweet itself, de Blasio wrote, “Time for me to leave electoral politics and focus on other ways to serve. I am really grateful for all the people I met, the stories I heard and the many good souls who helped out. Thank you all!”

“Even though this is not going to work out, I hope you know how much I appreciate you and we’re gonna do a lot together to make this city better in the future,” he added. “I’m feeling a lot of gratitude, I’m also recognizing I made mistakes, I want to do better in the future, I want to learn from those mistakes,” he said. “And it’s been a humbling experience, but it’s been a healthy experience.”

The exit from the congressional race ended much like his failed 2020 presidential bid did, where de Blasio failed to garner more than 1 percent support in Democratic primary polling.

As for things not working out, well… that’s a safe bet:

Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
