#NeverBloomberg has been trending and rightfully so. It seems something that unites progressives and moderates is their disdain for Bloomberg and his past. I don't want a racist, sexist plutocrat to be the Democratic nominee. Also, he will absolutely get demolished by 45 who would posture to the left of him in many instances like he did with Hillary.
Democratic elites literally do not care about ordinary people, don't be fooled into thinking they're on the "good" side just because they're Democrats.
And here I thought I started something original when I mentioned that hashtag!
Oh well, it's a good cause. The guy's national polling average is now up to 14.2% as of this writing, mostly at Joe Biden's expense. That support, incidentally, comes disproportionately from African American voters, which is perhaps the most insidious thing of it all.
Biden would be among the worst options the Democrats could go with in this field, IMO, but I'd still take him over Bloomberg any day of the week.
Maybe having Bloomberg on the debate stage this next time will be a blessing in disguise. That should expose him to actual scrutiny on national television for pretty much the first time in this contest. Seriously, with all the advertising he's purchased, essentially all of his media coverage so far has been on his own terms. Maybe not being able to control all the terms for once will change things.
