I don't follow too much in the way of American politics, but from the bit I see and read, it would seem that Trump is too busy getting on other peoples' nerves to worry about someone else getting on his nerves.

They should give Bloomberg the nomination.

The Bernie Bro's will be pissed and stay home.

The woke crowd thinks he's racist and hate his wealth.

Blue collar moderates don't like elitist anti-gun candidates.

He'll never energize the black or Latino vote like others Dems have. 

He literally appeals to nobody... except the DNC who wants his donations. lol

Nobody except morons in red states who watched the apprentice think trump is a brilliant businessman and undoubtedly that grates on him 


I don't know about 'brilliant', but he certainly is resourceful, adaptable, and determined. He's blown his fortune a couple of times and managed to completely reinvent himself and rebuild it over and over again. He started out with a real estate empire, then got into sports and gaming, then switched it up to licensing his name, first as a real estate brand for buildings and then as a lifestyle brand for pretty much any product, then switched it up again and became a reality TV megastar, then switched it up again and got into politics and became POTUS. The guy never gives up, never loses faith in himself, and is utterly fearless about trying new things until he finds something that works. There are worse traits to have in a leader.

They'll definitely lose with Bloomberg, if they try to stiff the Bernie crowd.

If Bernie doesn't win the nomination, his base is going to stay home, vote green, and vote Trump rather than voting for the Democratic nominee.

Mike Bloomberg is going to be the single greatest threat to Trump's re-election, bar none.

 

He's not going to be the nominee, but that's not the point. He has spent hundreds of millions of dollars *of his own money* in a matter of months putting together a formidable campaign apparatus.

 

He has poached the smartest and best consultants, lawyers, advisors, data analysts, digital directors, and strategists available. He has even recruited top talent from his own company to work for his campaign. 

He has thousands of campaign staffers and offices all over the country. His staff has also been assured job security through the entire general election season, and starting salaries are over $70k for phone banking and canvassing.

 

Based on his ad blitz alone, he has risen in the primary polls, even leading in Arkansas, and that is for someone who didn't enter the race until November 2019 and hasn't been on the debate stage.

Other candidates do news interviews because they see it as 'free' advertising, even if they have to answer tough questions. Bloomberg isn't all over the cable news circuit, and can directly avoid a lot of scrutiny over his record as NYC Mayor, because he can afford to buy all the advertising he wants. 


Bloomberg is willing to spend literally BILLIONS of his own money to take out Trump. After the DNC convention, that entire campaign he built will shift to helping the dem. nominee and attacking Trump.

I don't think people can really grasp the machine Bloomberg is putting together. This is the same guy who built Bloomberg L.P. He knows what he is doing.

 

If Trump focuses on Bloomberg during the general election, that's a lost cause since he's not the nominee. Nobody will care about "mini-Mike" during the general. Even if Bloomberg's campaign is going to effectively be what Trump is running against, it will not be who he's running against.

 

People talk so much shit about Bloomberg, but trust me, the dude is building a political behemoth behind the scenes.

He pumped millions into individual House candidates in 2018, and almost every candidate he backed flipped a House seat. He's going to do the same with Congress in 2020 along with hammering Trump every single day.

 

It's gonna be a good one, folks!

 

 Billions of dollars for this cringe?

 

No, billions of dollars on a nationwide ad blitz in every single state, along with an aggressive groundgame campaigning for the dem. nominee. 

He has spent hundreds of millions of dollars in just three months to build the infrastructure of his campaign. You really think that money was used for Twitter videos?

 

Here is a NYT article from the other day detailing his campaign. And this is just the core campaign which will be used by the eventual dem. nominee.

He's going to easily eclipse Ross Perot with personal spending when you factor in the congressional candidates he will be supporting. Bloomberg's spending is going to be unprecedented.

He is building a political machine with zero budget constraints, and it is going to outlive his candidacy well into 2020:

Mini Mike isn't even a speed bump on the way to 2020. This idiot's vision of turning the White House into an Indian call center is about as enticing to the American public as rubbing down Joe Biden's sun bleached leg hairs.

i don't know, man. there are plenty of people like yourself riding turmp's nuts hard enough to cancel out hundreds of haters, each.

Bloomberg is legitimately the worst candidate they have outside of the tri-state area. He is an insufferable little twat with zero personality.  His whiny voice alone does and will turn off millions of people.

Can we also take a moment to reflect on how hilarious it is that two 70s year old billionaires from NY (well bloomie ain't from here really) are having a name calling twitter war in run up to the presidential election?

Little faggot is no match for the Donald though. Guy is the master at this shit...

banco usually has shit takes, but he is right about Bloomberg.

 

Even if that commie fuck Bernie is the nominee and doesn't want Bloomberg's help, Bloomberg is still going to be using his campaign to run n attack ads on Trump, along with the congressional support.

 

People ITT dismissing Bloomberg, look past the nominee and instead focus on the massive self-funded PAC he's putting together.

Only thing I know about Mike Bloomberg is that I hate his fucking mug seeing his God damn political ads on every fucking YouTube video I watch.  He looks like that creepy fuck from poltergeist 2.

All of that is true, but I think you are grossly overestimating the impact of spending money on the election. Hillary outspent Trump by two-to-one and still couldn't beat him. I think voter enthusiasm is far more important and Bloomberg hasn't got ANY of that. Not even the people that are working for him are excited about a Bloomberg candidacy. They're just mercenaries, and have no loyalty to anyone.

making gun control your signature issue will tank you in any national election in the US. If anything americans have gotten less supportive of gun control over time so this stance will be an even bigger negative than it was in the 90's

LOL no.


Bloomberg is a sure way to make sure EVERY gun owner in the country votes for trump.



Fuck gun control and fuck socialism.

I have no doubt trump would beat him but he pushes trump's buttons regarding trump's wealth and how he is perceived in new york in a way other opponents don't 


Lol nobody thinks bloomberg is cool. He is a total dickwipe.

They think he is a brilliant businessman. 

I thought Bloomberg did a good job as mayor of NYC. I just don't think a NT jew can win enough flyover states to win. His anti gun stance will cost him. The biggest problem the dems will have is scaling back on their wild claims of free everything after the primaries are over. Trump will be retweeting their socaliast agenda every night.

That's how this shit works. He's dumped a shitload of money on gun control too, flipping states along the way. That's why it's laughable when you hear the nitwits claiming how unfair it is that the NRA (full of millions of individuals) has so much money when Bloomberg is on the other side of the coin funding his BS single-handedly.

Yup.

His ad buys for Super Tuesday states are more than the other dem. candidates combined, which is why they are so pissed at him right now.


Bloomberg has been poaching staffers from them, too. He has had Bernie staffers (who if you remember were angry about pay) defect to him in every state.

There are staffers who will vote for Bernie, but left the Bernie campaign to work for Bloomberg because the money was too good.

Hillary is also one of the worst, most digusting people on the planet and she ignored swing states to attend Broadway fundraisers.

Bloomberg has opened offices in swing states and is hiring staff to implement a groundgame in counties she lost.

 

Again, it's about the machine he is building; not the man himself.

 

Bloomberg not having heat doesn't matter since he has committed to using his resources to take out Trump even if he's not the nominee.

His staff have no loyalty to Bloomberg, but they all hate Trump and the focus for 2020 will be about beating Trump; not having Mike win (he's not going to be the nominee).

Bloomberg will have 1 debate ahead of Super Tuesday, he better knock that shit out of the park... which he won't. He's just not a charismatic guy from everything I've seen of him. I'm not sure how effective a campaign of TV ads only is ahead of all those primaries but I'll guess I'll see.

 

You never hear shit about Bloomberg beyond that he's supposed to be a threat because he's rich and he's running and spending money. All these candidates like Warren have been campaigning for ages. The DNC is an absolute joke if Bloomberg wins, the anything but Trump narrative only goes so far. Seeing Warren being subjugated to him would be hilarious.

Imo Tucker is wrong... Pete is the guy, not Bloomberg.

I didn't say he ignores it.

99.999% of human beings would kill themselves within an hour if you put them in Trump's shoes while he's reading Twitter.
