After receiving no support in Iowa and having almost no detectible support as of Monday, February 10, the day before the New Hampshire primary, Michael Bennet’s run for president is at an inglorious end.
Nationally, Bennet is listed at 0.8. He needs to get out of New Hampshire and the race as quickly as possible since Colorado Democrats and unaffiliated have started to vote for the March 3 primary. Failure in Iowa and New Hampshire was long expected, but receiving only a handful of votes in Colorado will not be a resume builder.
