Plenty of Democratic presidential hopefuls are trailing Hillary Clinton in polls, but no candidate seems to be trailing more than former Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee, who has literally zero support according to new data from Monmouth University.
The numbers, released Wednesday, show that the percent of people who say they’d back the little-known Chafee for the Democratic nomination stood at zero in both June and July. Clinton, meanwhile, is currently pulling 51% of support in the poll, down from 57% last month, and Bernie Sanders has 17% of support, up from 12% last month.
The sample of 1,001 adults has a margin of error of 5.2 percentage points, so maybe Chafee’s just getting unlucky with the polls two months in a row. But even fellow candidates Jim Webb and Martin O’Malley each garnered support from 1% of poll participants this month.
