As predictable as the sunrise. Club engineers now maneuver Michael Bloomberg into third place. Notice how Morning Consult positions the graphic with Bloomberg leaping over Warren. Now we enter the phase were national media will discover a new found love for the former New York City mayor… a considerable shift in the corporate narrative.
Morning Consult publishes their poll of 15,000 democrats:
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg picked up another 2 points among Democratic primary voters across the country, pulling even with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) at 14 percent first-choice support.
The latest survey testing hypothetical matchups between the top Democratic candidates and President Trump also brings good news for the billionaire businessman: Bloomberg leads the Republican incumbent by 7 points, the largest margin Morning Consult has measured among any candidate since it began releasing head-to-head results in early January (more)
Nothing is organic. Everything is controlled and scripted. Joe Biden, usefulness exhausted, is positioned to collapse. The Biden support will be given two options to coalesce by the influence of the national corporate media: Bloomberg or Bernie?
Bernie Sanders becomes the grassroots Rodney Dangerfield of the DNC Club. The key influence agents; the professional donor class within the Club, will unite with MSM to promote Bloomberg. And so it will go…
As the battle between Grassroots (Bernie) and Astroturf (Bloomberg) plays out, a pre-existing concern remains….
Reminds me of Obama, when he was suddenly “ordained” and Hillary was asked to step aside, in exchange for a guaranteed Dem candidacy in 2016.
How do you beat a 4 Billion dollar NYC businessman?
With a 61 Billion dollar NYC Oligarch.
@Nathan Blue: Remember when the problem was, according to Democrats, “old white men”? Need any additional proof of how utterly stupid Democrats are?
Democrats declared last time that no one but Democrats can run in the Democrat primary. So, they ask Bernie, “Are you a Democrat?” and he says, “Yeah. Sure. Whatever.” Then he continues to promote himself as an independent and socialist. Now that he commands a large portion of the support, the DNC wants to get rid of him. Why didn’t they cut him off from the beginning?
Democrats complained about having a billionaire in the White House because of a false concern over “emoluments”, then promote a BIGGER billionaire. Democrats having lowered the bar considerably for grounds for impeachment, how long before Bloomberg is impeached. Oh… and where is the crescendo of demands for his income taxes? No, not just financial statements, but his full returns with all the attached forms? How can we be sure the IRS is doing its job?
And Bloomberg; if he doesn’t get the nomination, he’ll go rogue on them, just like Bernie will. The Democrats may have finally reached the point where promising everyone everything, even competing interest groups, is going to tear them apart.
