Much like their owners, Iowan dogs are letting it be known they are not supportive of Mike Bloomberg’s presidential campaign, as less than 1 percent of them – almost 0 – said they are likely to vote for him.

The fact that no dogs are voting for him is telling about his relatedness among canines. Bloomberg was caught on camera greeting a dog by shaking his mouth in Vermont this week, and dogs across the country have responded by ruling him out as a viable presidential candidate.

“He just doesn’t get man’s best friend,” a good boy, Scooter, said through his translator/owner. “If he doesn’t greet us with belly scratches and head pats then what can he do for us?”

Other dogs – again through their owners – have said they aren’t supporting Bloomberg because dogs can’t vote.
