Yeah, he can win. He has name appeal. The current president was elected off name appeal. But Bloomberg actually has a solid understanding of economics and a background in politics. He is a Jew though, which is a negative for winning elections.

He's basically skipping the first 4 states entirely and focusing on all the other states. He is spending his own money. It's projected he has already spent around 200 million. He has said he is open to spending 1 billion dollars on it and on defeating Trump.

What do you think?

He has very little chance of getting the Demotard nomination, much less beating Trump. As long as the economy stays solid, Trump will win. As it is said, people vote their pocketbooks.

Pros:

* Infinite money, and he is willing to spend it on both his own campaign, and on helping down-ballot Democrats as well.

* A long record of competence in government, leading massive organizations, dealing with a lot of complex data, and juggling competing interests.

* Turned NYC around. Bloomberg is strong on economics, and surrounds himself with capable professionals.

* He will get under Trump's skin, and negate a lot of Trump's "strengths". Bloomberg is a self-made guy, his daddy didn't give him $400 million to get him started. He's a REAL business titan, his net worth is more than 10x even Trump's most ludicrously inflated claims of wealth, and he made it all himself.

* He's a steady hand. People who are tired of the circus, Bloomberg is not a circus ringmaster. He's an actual grownup whose persona is one of patrician competence. People who just want to not think about the President every single day can get behind him.



Cons:

* Has a big, BIG problem with black voters because of stop and frisk.

* He's a Jew.

* He's not a charismatic guy.

* Twitter warriors will try to destroy him because of allegations of a sexist culture.

* Made his billions by inventing a device to make Wall Street cunts get much, MUCH richer.




Could he win? Its impossible to tell. But for the "Establishment centrist old guy" vote, he beats the shit out of Biden. The sheer amount of money he brings to the table is a factor that hasn't been seen before. He is at least 5x richer than every other candidates put together, including Trump and Steyer (probably 10x richer), and he is willing to spend huge. That factor is massive, but what effect it will or could have is currently unknown.

He should donate his campaign money to charitable and educational causes because he ain't getting the Democratic nomination.
His style of Liberalism does not fly well outside Of White Liberal New Yorkers.

Black voters would pick him over any Republican. That’s a nonissue.

Maybe so, but he's got to take down five Democrats before he gets a shot at a Republican.

Well, four really, because black folk seem to have no love at all for Mayor Pete. :lol:
