Former Maryland Democratic Gov. Martin O'Malley received zero votes in an Iowa poll of 619 likely Democratic caucus-goers on whom they would support in a 2016 primary.

The Quinnipiac University poll found that not a single respondent said O'Malley would be their first choice for the Democratic nominee. 

Politico reports:

Iowa Democrats don’t seem to be all that enamored with Martin O’Malley, according to a new poll released Thursday.

Among 619 likely caucus-goers surveyed by Quinnipiac University, zero percent responded that they would support the former governor of Maryland in 2016. And only 3 percent say he would be their second choice.

O’Malley drew low numbers from Quinnipiac surveys in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida earlier this month, garnering just 2 percent in the Keystone State and only 1 percent in the other two swing states.

O'Malley stated earlier this year that he is "very seriously" considering a run for president in 2016.
