Bloomberg will have to work on his name recognition if he wants to secure the Democratic presidential nomination, as the poll showed that only 6 percent of poll respondents and 49 percent of Democrats were familiar with Bloomberg.

Even among Democratic voters who do know Bloomberg, only 57 percent view him favorably, which is below where the race's presumed front-runners are polling, according to Reuters.
