Gov. O'Malley in fourth place in his home state

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is only in fourth place among Democratic presidential candidates in his home state, according to a Washington Post-University of Maryland poll released Monday.

O'Malley got the support of just 4 percent of registered Maryland Democrats in the most recent survey. He trails Hillary Clinton at 43 percent, Vice President Joe Biden at 26 percent, and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders at 20 percent. Biden is not even a declared candidate.

The ex-governor did however beat former Virginia Sen. Jim Webb, who scored 1 percent, and former Rhode Island politician Lincoln Chafee, who took less than 1 percent.

Previous polls show the O'Malley's best numbers came back in February of 2013, when 8 percent of Maryland Democrats chose him as their preferred candidate.
