Expect the best psyops from Bloomberg.

Although Joe Biden gets a lot of credit for his "foreign leaders laughing at Trump" ad. Other than ridiculing Bloomberg's height, Trump's got no way of retaliating against Mike Bloomberg. And Bloomberg's pose of "complete indifference" to Trump's attacks only makes Trump angrier.

Bring it!

I hope the Bernie people don't piss Bloomberg off so much that he reneges on his

pledge to give his campaign machinery to the nominee if it's Bernie. I mean, how much abuse is he supposed to gracefully swallow?

Indeed, those poll results are shocking when you see them.

A few quick points:

1. That poll question isn't, "Do you love Michael Bloomberg?"
2. Many of those of us who voted Bloomberg in that particular poll (as did I) tried to explain why we voted as we did.
3. My takeaway of that poll is that it illustrates the extreme risk-aversion many of us have to even the possibility of four more years of this president.

I will support ANY Democratic nominee.
I strongly supported Bernie in the 2016 primaries, but see things differently now.
Bloomberg is not my first choice.
Bloomberg can beat Trump.

UTTERLY



Why?

Joe Biden could dismantle Trump's presidency.
Bloomberg could dismantle Trump's self-confidence (ego, narcissism, and generally his mind)

Trump would come unglued before our eyes.

This type of ad:



A thousand policy ads won't do to Trump what these 15 seconds will.

Very funny.

He missed one thing: Trump's father's voice is in Trump's head, and that's the button Bloomberg will be pushing the hardest.

Exactly.

Whoever the nominee is, I'm rolling up my sleeves and going all in.

The consumer is holding up our economy

We are a consumer-driven economy, so what we decide to do with that portion of our income that doesn't go to essentials is very important. As you suggest, this gives us more power than most of us recognize.

Our politicians don't fear us. I doubt they care about the marches. But if we implement our own "sanctions" in a strategic way, our outrage would be felt. Guarantee it.

Secondly, this economy will suffer eventually, one way or another. Personally, I would rather the "recession" begin on Trump's watch rather than under the watch of our next Democratic president.

Both have admirable qualities.

Steyer has been on Trump since day one.

I voted Bloomberg because of Bloomberg's unique social position and ability to get beneath Trump's skin like no other candidate. Bloomberg has exactly zero fear of Trump, and he knows where Trump's vulnerabilities are and is hitting them by subtly humiliating him. Trump would rather you fear or hate him than laugh at him. Bloomberg will be doing a lot of laughing. I'm hoping that through Bloomberg's ads we all learn where Trump's real vulnerabilities are and laugh at him as well rather than fear him (or, to put it more precisely, try to conceal our fear at least until november).

Secondly, Bloomberg has promised to support the Democratic nominee no matter who, and to throw his 1,000-person strong campaign machine (and all the data and research that comes with it) behind that candidate, in addition to the potentially billion + war chest.

"In God we trust. Everyone else bring data." - Bloomberg

We could use that data!

"Just remember, QAnon folks..."
