President… Bloomberg?

Former New York Mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg threw his hat in the ring to become the Democratic Presidential Nominee.

In a theoretical match up between Bloomberg and Trump, Bloomberg polled better by 6 points, but that’s a bit misleading because it was a national poll instead of by state, and it showed 21% of respondents undecided.

Even if people across the country aren’t sure, Democrats appear to be united in their negative views of the latest entrant.  Only 4% of Democrats called Bloomberg their first choice, which put him in front of 10 other candidates that have been in the race for some time, but well behind the front runners Joe Biden (21%), Bernie Sanders (20%), and Elizabeth Warren (18%).

It’s hard to see how a party that has railed against wealth and privilege would coalesce around a man who exudes both, but Bloomberg is hoping to own the moderate space in the race, displacing gaffe-prone Biden.

      BLOOMBERG TRIED SENDING UP FEELERS YEARS AGO THROUGHOUT AMERICA. HE LEARNED THE HARD WAY THAT FEW EVER HEARD OF HIM AND OF THOSE WHO DID, THEY KNEW ABOUT HOW HE BRIBED THE NYC COUNCIL UNTIL THEY VOTED TO LET HIM RUN FOR AN ILLEGAL 3RD TERM AS MAYOR. LOTS ALSO KNEW ABOUT HIS BAN ON 16 OZ SODAS AND NO SALT ON THE TABLES OF RESTAURANTS AND SO MUCH MORE. HE’S NOT GOING TO ACTUALLY RUN, AND IF HE DOES HE WILL LOSE. I THINK HE’S TRYING TO GET RID OF THE DEAD WEIGHT ON THE DEMOCRATIC SIDE OF CANDIDATES.

    Oh great, Now the Nations sugared soft drinks will be outlawed, not just New York Cities. Didn’t do anything for the homeless crises, lm not sure he did anything for anybody other than buy a job as Mayor of New York City.

    Adolph Bloomers raised taxes in NYC through the roof. He tried to make NYC a NANNY STATE , by limiting our Soda Consumption, Our Salt intake , & the list goes on. He is a poor little rich boy from Boston… even they didn’t want that control freak there. He treats every thing like his OWN PERSONAL MONOPOLY GAME. He doen’t gives a RATASS about HUMANS , only his own AGENDA , that’s just MAKING MORE MONEY.. period.

    I do not like Bloomberg. He is intelligent however. He is also a REAL businessman; Trump is a con artist. As stupid as it may sound, the best republican ticket would be Biden & Bloomberg. They are both able to negotiate – a talent only a few in Congress have.

    Bloomberg is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, the people that are hard at work to impose on us all their One World Socialist Dictatorship.

    Saying that Trump will win in a landslide in 2020 requires my comment to be moderated?????? This is obviously a liberal socialist website that does NOT follow the Constitution and allow free speech.
