He would be a credible candidate.
Yeah, he like Warren has no grass roots support. He has spent 20 million dollars to make all guns illegal. That alone loses him over half the votes in the country.
Well, I did not know that Doc. Ignoring the fact that he is a multi-billionaire who could afford the cost, it still stands out if is willing to spend that much of his own money on something like that from which he would derive no direct benefit but from which many others would, I can only conclude that he must be sincere in his convictions.
Or someone that has always wanted to be president and being a billionaire $20 million is pocket change.
The point you seem to have missed is that he could have spent that "pocket change" in support of the gun lobby and its interests. Instead it spent it in opposition to it. That counts!

The "lost" votes would be of no consequence Doc. It is the other half of votes that would count. You cannot please everyone and anyone campaigning for election would be a fool were he to try.

The lost votes would be his starting point. He would have to get almost all the votes in the various 50 states that he did not start without having any possibility to get.
Donald Trump started out with no voter support at all - but he still attracted enough to be elected President. Anything can happen.
Micheal Bloomberg is no Donald Trump

Thats a a term from Australia for when you are trying to set a guy up for a date with an ugly woman he has never met.

Usage "I know this woman I can fix you up on a date with. She really has a lot of talent"

Don't need one Doc. Rather, you need to know what you are talking about before posting. :P

The more Democrats running the better.
Primaries are just a sorting out process. Only one can run for president as his/hers party's endorsed candidate.
Gosh! We didn't know that. Thanks for filling us in . . .
That was not for your benefit Jim. Rather for somebody who presumes that the more that run in the Democrats primaries the better for Trump. I see it rather as the wider the choice of talent available the more likely the party will pick a winner.
Not necessarily, Neverfail.

I think you don't understand how democracy works in practice. The Democrats are divided between their Socialists and the moderates.

The Socialists are divided between Elizabeth Warren (she claims to be a capitalist :roll: )and Bernie Sanders (he admits to being a Socialist).

The moderates have lined up behind Joe Biden even though he is a flawed candidate - possibly senile, tainted with his son's suspicious dealings in Ukraine and China. This makes Biden barely a front runner.

So if Bloomberg runs, the moderate vote will be divided between Biden and Bloomberg. The Democrats will go into the convention a divided party. No doubt, there will be mud-slinging and anger at the eventual nominee. This makes it tough for the eventually winner to unite the party. Hurt feelings among the losers' supporters will cause some to sit at home or vote for a third party candidate.

Meanwhile, the Republicans are rock solid behind Trump. That's why I think having so many candidates without a solid front runner is bad for the Democrats.
Sounds like the perfect system... ;) ... I wonder why only idiots and crooks have occupied the White House since Kennedy was murdered...
This system produced clowns like oBUMa. But it also produced great leaders like Reagan who defeated the USSR and saved the world from the Socialist gulag.
The Imp :D
