Another rich white guy? Guess Michelle's gonna have to jump in.

Perfect.

Muddy the water, create more strife within the Democratic party, draw away funding other candidates and disenfranchise a whole bunch Dems in swing states.

Lovin it.

-4 ( +3 / -7 )

That will be interesting. Two candidates. One a highly successful billionaire entrepreneur. The other is Donald Trump.

2 ( +5 / -3 )

Richer and more successful than Trump. So successful I doubt he’d need to skim off charity money. I don’t think he’s trailing a list of bankruptcies either. Trump supporters like the idea of a businessman running the country.

I’m sure Trump supporters like the idea.

Bloomberg wants to cut the debt by reducing Social Security and Medicare benefits.

He does not support a progressive tax code.

For these reasons I would not vote for him.

Isn't Trump a rich white guy?

Trump already throwing in the personal insults. Worth $52 billion. "Little Michael" Trump called him. He also said Bloomberg had "personal problems".

Funny, for a party that so racially diverse and prides itself for it, all of its top Presidential candidates are White.

He won’t win. Hardly anyone wants to elect the man that scolds Americans what to eat and drink and how to live and conduct our lives. 6%....yeah, expect that number to stay like that.

0 ( +3 / -3 )

He won’t win.

Trump looks hard to beat. A man who breaks the law in electioneering and steals from charity is still the strongest looking candidate. It's sad but true.

Based on allegations by Harry Reid the man who said Romney doesn’t pay his taxes, all debunked, but yeah, the media could care less as long as it can damage Trump politically, why would they care. Screw the voters, the establishment hammer and sickle will tell you how to vote.

Bloomberg is the richer more successful businessman and has political experience. 20 times more money than Trump.

You said the same about Trump

Yes, but money doesn’t help you win an election, it’s an asset, but it doesn’t give you likability status or make you charismatic. The man has no sense of humor, not to mention he’s short and sad to say this, but the country is not ready for a short President, that’s just a cold hard fact.

You said the same about Trump.

But Trump is likable to over 80 million people, Bloomberg doesn’t come anywhere even remotely close to that.

But the fact is that Trump has come up short on his campaign promises. Shortest of height has nothing to do with it. Obama was tall but you still insulted him.

But Trump is likable to over 80 million people, Bloomberg doesn’t come anywhere even remotely close to that.

Strange, in the 2016 election, 63 million voters were for Trump, a minority.

Bloomberg hasn't been a candidate before. So you have no idea.

The majority of presidents have been short.

2 ( +3 / -1 )

Yes and there is a reason for that, at 77 years old that he never tried.

Bloomberg hasn't been a candidate before

-3 ( +1 / -4 )

But Trump is likable to over 80 million people

Many people who voted for Trump see him as vulgar, ignorant, dodgy, dishonest and childish but liked his policies. According to your logic, more people ‘liked’ Hillary Clinton.

Where are you getting the stats from on how Bloomberg is viewed nationwide?

But the fact is that Trump has come up short on his campaign promises.

Only the ones where the Democrats threw roadblocks in front of him.

Shortest of height has nothing to do with it. Obama was tall but you still insulted him.

Focus! I never liked Obama nor did I vote for him, but this is not about me, the majority of Americans are not attracted to someone that short for a commander in chief. That’s just reality.

Strange, in the 2016 election, 63 million voters were for Trump, a minority.

That got him over the finish line. I guess liberals really don’t get how the EC works.

Bloomberg hasn't been a candidate before. So you have no idea.

I do, he did a decent job in NYC, but as a Presidential candidate, he has NO chance. Zero. Continue to watch and see how his numbers don’t surpass the other Democrats this is why he’s jumping in.

The majority of presidents have been short.

Not that short and we live in 2019 where people are a lot taller.

You guys obstructed Obama for eight years, why would you ever expect that the other team wouldn't return that?

What is Trump's current poll ratings

41.4% approve 54.3% disapprove.

Trump even gets booed when attending games and other events. People shouting "lock him up".

So a minority of voters, 63 million, voted for Trump.

Why did you claim 80 million like him? What is this based on?

Ok, so his approval is slightly higher than his normal average, so not much difference. Once he gets in his 20’s please inform me.

But thank God the majority of over 53% of Key Battleground state voters disapprove of him getting impeached.

In D.C. and in Blue States, I wouldn’t expect any different. But he’s not the first President to be booed. Let him to a game in Texas or Mississippi, probably roll out the red carpet for the man. Lol

This makes no sense whatsoever. It’s utter nonsense. It has no place in an adult conversation. It debauches this website. It’s unacceptable.

He is 77.

Why?

It's bad enough the leading democratic candidates are 77 and 78.

Yeah, it really does.

Deflection doesn’t help liberals, not one iota, unacceptable.

Money and political experience didn't win the election last time. The world is very different now, 20 times more money is almost a guaranteed loss.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

If Bloomberg wants to help, he should run in the Republican primary, not the Democratic party.

Jeeze, another Democrat I have to learn about? This is why I don't get involved this early.

The funniest thing this week was Jeff Session's promotional video!
