The newest poll finds that Democrats just have no use for Michael Bloomberg despite getting favorable coverage from the entire left-wing press corps last week when he floated his run for the 2020 Democrat nomination.
A poll taken Sunday seems to say that Bloomberg would have a tough time making headway if he were to officially enter the race.
Despite a fawning press, only a tiny four percent of Democrats who answered the Morning Consult poll said that they would favor him for the nomination.
The poll slapped Bloomberg in sixth place behind leaders Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, and perennial losers Pete Buttigieg and Kamala Harris.
According to the poll, Biden was the clear frontrunner with 31 percent of the vote. Meanwhile, Sanders was supported by 20 percent of the respondents, Warren picked up 18 percent, Buttigieg found eight percent, and Harris a tiny 6 percent.
But Bloomberg was behind all of them with a mere four percent.
The polling suggests that if Bloomberg made it official his entry into the field wouldn’t do a whole lot to change the race.
Still, some political operatives think Bloomberg would be welcomed into the race.
“It’s going to be difficult, but we’ve never really seen a candidate with this amount of resources at his disposal,” said veteran Clinton and Iowa Democratic operative Grant Woodard.
“A lot of people here haven’t made up their minds,” Woodard added. “There could still be an opening for him.”
The poll also claimed that Bloomberg would beat Trump if the election were held today. However, that is all before Bloomberg’s positions are made known to the vast majority of voters. It is far more likely that he won’t be able to pull any Republican votes when they find out what a loon he is, but he isn’t loony enough to gain the far lefts vote.
Bloomberg is a non-starter. He’d better save his money.
