In his company, ideas – even stories – are not green without data to support them.
If Bloomberg works, he will fly in front of an internal survey of his own team, indicating that there is no clear path to victory.
Just recently, an October 2019 Fox News poll asked a slightly different question and found that 6% of Democratic voters said they would definitely vote for Bloomberg in the Democratic primary, while 32% said that they would never vote for him. Given his rhetoric that Democrats must defeat Trump at all costs, why will Bloomberg go after former Vice President Joe Biden's chance to be nominated?
After all, Biden polls the best against Trump in key swing states.
That's because Bloomberg has watched the former Vice President fade into Iowa and doesn't think Biden fired. Biden's number has been halved in the last year in a survey of probable corn from Iowa, and it dropped to just 1
Bloomberg and his team are undetected by survey data they conducted internally, which is not strong, said a Bloomberg advisor who provided context for the strategy.
"Not strong but not zero.
The councilor said that thinking in Bloomberg's camp is that current polls do not account for moderates who will find themselves more likely to be a candidate they care about. said the counselor.  "He is a data person, so it's good to know what data is real and what data is not real," said the advisor.
In fact, Bloomberg may have a problem appealing two of Biden's major constituencies: white non-college voters and white voters. A Fox News poll in October 2019 found that only 8% of whites without college and 7% of white voters would definitely vote for Bloomberg in the Democratic primary.
The Billionaire Equation
The eventual holding of Bloomberg would feed the current conversation on income inequality and whether billionaires buy elections – topics central to the senses of Elizabeth Elizabeth Warren and Warren Millennial campaigns Tom Steyer has spent millions of dollars on television commercials, and although he has broadcast debates, he is barely registering in the ballot box.
Shortly after Bloomberg broke the news, both Warren and Sanders mocked him on Twitter.
Bloomberg did not respond on Twitter Thursday night, but did take pictures of Warren in the past.
In August, Bloomberg joked he had run into Warren at an Iowa Weapons Safety Forum, where he said he reminded her that if his company had failed, "we wouldn't be here today, so enough with these things. "
Hedge fund manager Leon Kuperman claims Warren is "moving" on "the dream of Americans." "
Neither Dimon nor Kuperman are nice characters. And the billionaires who beat Warren can support her. Every time one of them makes a shot, she tweets about it.
After Dimon's attack, Warren shoots himself. back: "The fact that they reacted so hard – so angry! – to be asked to chip in more tells you everything you need to know. The system works great for the rich and well connected, and Jamie Dimon doesn't want that to change. I will fight to make sure it works for everyone. "
And when Kuperman broke up while discussing it, she said, "One thing I know he cares about is his wealth. He is a shareholder in Navient, a student loan company that has defrauded borrowers and used abusive, misleading tactics."
"How stupid these guys are," said one big Democrat donor before the Bloomberg news broke. "She can raise money for any of these comments."
