Anyone but Trump apparently in the latest polls of Democrats out on Monday. Bloomberg now qualifies for the Wednesday debate. Considering the withering attacks that have been made on him with the unearthing of past statements, everything that in a normal day would disqualify someone, not on a day when Trump is the opponent. Who says money can’t buy you everything?
Michael Bloomberg (D) is jumping behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) to second place nationally, a Zogby Analytics poll released Monday revealed.
The billionaire, whom Sanders has routinely railed against for attempting to “buy” the presidential primary, has made it to second place in a national poll, behind the socialist senator by just four percentage points — 20 percent to Sanders’ 24 percent support.
Monday’s RealClearPolitics average shows a similar lineup, with Sanders in the lead followed by Biden, Bloomberg, Warren, and Buttigieg.
Real Clear Politics:
Bernie Sanders continues his winning ways and is now the national frontrunner. With Michael Bloomberg’s ascendancy into the second slot in the national polls, the campaigns of Elizabeth Warren and Pete Buttigieg have suffered tremendously. Biden is hurting too, but is banking heavily on strong support from African American voters in South Carolina, and if he doesn’t win it outright his campaign could be game over. Bloomberg is taking all of Biden’s support among key groups: mainly women, moderates, older voters, suburban voters, suburban women and college educated voters.
This almost makes me want to watch the debate. Almost.
Other than that all is well in the swamp.
