3. I would be shocked if Bloomberg enters a debate

 

Once he's hammered by all the dem candidates for stop and frisk ect... He will drop behind Biden and most of the remaining field. He has not been vetted or slammed by tv ads yet, but we know it's coming.

His best play is to stay off the debate stage as long as possible and hope his huge tv ad budget over powers what ever the others can counter with.

Bloomberg has handled these controversies before. But yes, it could get ugly.

19. I think we underestimate the power of money.

 

There was a fascinating discussion on Democracy Now yesterday by a journalist who has covered Bloomberg for years about the difficulty people have in going against Bloomberg when he has given so many millions to their organizations or campaigns. They talked about the organizations that were for term limits until Bloomberg donated big bucks to them and a few months later when he wanted his third term, changed their objections.

They had a current DNC member who had worked for CEnt for Am Progress and was writing a report on NYPD Surveillance of Muslims and after CAP got money from Mike they had to censor their report.

Both videos are on Democracy Nowks website.

Moderates have been bouncing around from candidate to candidate hoping that one of them will rise to the top and stay there.

Let's see how he does at the next debate and issues of work place harassment NDAs becomes more widely know.

Down to where they'll be getting desperate to hang onto their donors now. Biden and Warren are dropping in the polls , and both need to look at changes or risk losing their bids. I do think Bidden's in trouble now.

15. This is a stunning figure if it in fact is true

 

It paints a very different picture as the primaries head south this year to what was true in 2016. The African American vote can't be said to solidly line up behind any single candidate, it is divided four ways, with Biden, Sanders, Bloomberg, and "Other" each pulling in a major share.

28. And among "non-white" voters the numbers are

 

Bernie 34%
Biden 21%
Bloomberg 19%

So, assuming that the majority of the "non-white" category consists of black and latino, that's a very strong latino showing for Bernie.

if you ignored the history of his prior attempts.

What I canít ignore is how the self appointed experts who were selling us Biden turned on a dime and rebranded to Bloomberg. All without a hint of embarrassment at how utterly wrong they were.

...Biden is simply not a good presidential candidate. Never has been. Thanks to Obama, he's doing much better this year than he's ever done before, but that's not saying much.

That said, he's infinitely better than Bloomberg, who is just a terrible, terrible person.

26. Strong second place for Sanders among AA voters. He only trails Biden by three points.

 

That's a recipe for a Sanders upset in South Carolina. If Bernie wins both Nevada and South Carolina he may be unstoppable going into Super Tuesday. And he is leading in the biggest prize of them all, California.

43. He started at nothing and is now tied with Sanders in various state polls and even some national

 

polls...that is not anecdotal...he will surpass Sanders if Biden doesn't win Carolina and do fairly well in Nevada. I will throw my support to Bloomberg he can save the house and campaign for our senate nominees unlike Sanders...already McSally is using Sanders in her campaign ads against our candidate. All other moderates need to drop out and then Sanders is toast. I want a nominee that can win. I would prefer Biden but Bloomberg will do.

Bloomberg ends up winning based on these numbers.

Granted, that's a huge simplification there, but a basic calculation that I'd imagine a lot of people are considering.

That asked the question about second choice had Biden and Warrens second choice being Sanders. So he would have 58 to Bloomberg's 38.. A 20 point lead.

Cause that would need to be the case for your numbers to work the way you present them.

What about the Biden and Warren voters that had Warren and Biden as #2? There was nobody?

I rather doubt that.

All voters besides Warren's would go to Bloomberg. No, Biden and Warren's second choice Waa the highest percentage for Sanders, but Pete, Amy and Styer also had some voter's going to Sanders, but at a lower percentage. So to say all moderate dems are all gonna jump to the next moderate dem does not Show up in polls.

If you look at this Marist poll, Sanders gained 9 and Biden lost 9 since the last poll by marist in December.
