Kirsten Gillibrand’s Candidacy Struggles To Gain Traction

Kirsten Gillibrand is running for president.

Her campaign is struggling.

Politico reports that in the first quarter of 2019, the junior senator from New York raised just $3 million for her presidential campaign.

That's the weakest haul of the six senators running at that time.

It's also, arguably, one of the most disappointing totals of anyone in the sprawling Democratic field.

Her poll numbers have been weak.

In virtually ever poll conducted since she entered the race she has lagged behind top tier candidates like Bernie Sanders.

She has not broken 2 percent in a single national poll since officially declaring her candidacy in mid-March.

She is averaging 0.4 percent in the RealClearPolitics aggregate of surveys.

That places her behind the likes of Julián Castro, Tulsi Gabbard and even geeky long shot Andrew Yang.

Right now, Gillibrand isn’t focused on winning the primary.

She’s worried about surviving the next few months.
