Polling: Clinton in single digits

'Clinton in single digits. That was the story in the fall of 1991. Bill Clinton was at 6% in New Hampshire. He trailed Paul Tsongas, Bob Kerrey, Jerry Brown, and Doug Wilder. He wasn't doing much better nationally where a poll showed him at a measly 9% nationally in December.

Today, Governor O'Malley's name recognition in Iowa is at 64% and he is polling at 5% in Iowa and at 5% in the latest national poll. When he announced, he was at less than 1% in the polls and his name recognition was at 21%.

YOU can help determine the direction that this campaign is heading. YOU can make this happen. Please, donate $500, $1000, or finish your max out today:


Here are the facts:

1) The poll numbers are moving in the right direction in the narrowed field
2) 17 million people watched him on national television speak for almost 18 minutes and his time on stage will dramatically increase at the next debate
3) We have an incredibly talented team on the ground in Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada building our organization county by county

So here is what we need you to do: Forward this email to ten of your friends and ask them to do you a personal favor and contribute to Governor O'Malley before our end of the month budget deadline of Oct 31. We have 9 days until the next Presidential forum in South Carolina and 17 days to the next debate where there will be only THREE candidates on stage.

Now is the time to go all-in for the campaign. Please, give today to help us get to - and win - the Iowa caucuses. Donate at martinomalley.com/contribute.

Bill Clinton's surge in New Hampshire was the week before Christmas. In fact, Bill Clinton raised only $201,319 in the 3rd Quarter of 1991, but he built on the late fall momentum to end the year with over $3.1 million raised.

Bill Clinton isn't the only example of a candidate rising from underdog status to winning the White House. Here are some more examples:

On this day in October 2007, Hillary Clinton had a commanding 26 point lead over Barack Obama.

Carter was “Non-Existent In Gallup’s 1975 Pre-Primary Polls” and garnered only 4% of the vote when he entered In 1976.

We are less than 100 days from the first caucus and down to three candidates. History shows that we are well positioned to take off going into the Iowa caucuses, and we have the infrastructure and ground game to do it.

Please help Governor O'Malley today by forwarding this email to 10 friends and encouraging them to contribute today.


Thank you,

Dave Hamrick
Campaign Manager
O'Malley for President

1. Wow, you must be on the more pricey email list.

They've never asked me for more than $25.

3. My paycheck isn't going to let that happen for awhile.

But I am surprised he is only at 64% name recognition in Iowa. That is crazy.

4. Crazy but probably moving up.

I still contribute my rather meager amount, but sometimes more often than I had planned; depends on my mood and perception of where he is!
