The political couple has a large army of fans, not just for the mayor's work in Indiana, but also because they are an LGBTQ pair in the 2020 presidential race.

But Chasten was not always on board to date a politician.

& # 39; He [Chasten] was a bit skeptical about getting confused with a politician, and he asked, you know, "What does your future look like?" And I told him, & Buttigieg said earlier on the podcast LGBTQ & A.

& # 39; So he reminds me of that now, and we're talking about the crazy life we ​​have, because I think none of us could have even guessed a year and a half ago that this was where life would take us, & # 39 ; he added.

According to a Tuesday survey, the mayor of South Bend has seen his number of national polls decrease in recent weeks.

He currently sits at 3 percent among Democratic primary voters, behind his colleague & # 39; s vice president Joe Biden, senator Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and entrepreneur Andrew Yang.
