Democracy Digest 2020: Bloomberg camp confirmed candidates to discuss – if he qualified

nearvideo-democratic presidential rivals turn Mike Bloomberg

Former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg’s recent comments, directives sparks outrage; reaction and analysis on ‘the Five.’

With Wednesday, the presidential primary debate in Nevada is getting closer, Mike Bloomberg remains a survey shy of making the state.

But his campaign on Monday confirmed to Fox News that if he were to qualify, the former New York city mayor and billionaire business-and media-mogul, to take part in the primetime showdown.

Bloomberg reaches 10 percent or higher in three national surveys, approved by the Democratic National Committee. He would need one more to get to the stage, and would have until 11:59 PM ET Tuesday evening the survey.

The other two ways to reach the stage 12 percent or higher in both the Nevada caucus and South Carolina primary approved surveys, or win a delegate to the national convention in Feb. 3 Iowa Caucuses and last week’s New Hampshire primary – have been out of the picture for Bloomberg, since he’s not on the ballot in one of the early-voting States.


So far, Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, a former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg and former Vice-President Joe Biden to the stage.

But, the other billionaire in the race, the environment, and a progressive advocate Tom Steyer – has failed to qualify. He remained for three national surveys to be shy or to make two, Nevada or South Carolina in the polls, short of the stage. And, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii, was even further from the fulfillment of the threshold.

Earlier this month, the DNC, the individual donor scrapped threshold for candidates to qualify for the debate. Since Bloomberg was money for his White house,” he commanded, had essentially the lockout of the stage. The movement of the DNC – the gateway to the Bloomberg – sparked criticism from many of its competitors.

Bloomberg decided, even before he skip started his offer at the end of November to invest in the early voting States of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and South Carolina, and instead of hundreds of millions of his own money to compete in the delegate-rich Super Tuesday States, the competitions on 3. March and beyond.

Although he could not capitalize on the vote in Nevada, on the debate stage, Bloomberg – with Super Tuesday less than two weeks away.

When he slipped in the national polls the last couple of weeks and as one-time undisputed leader Biden – Bloomberg under increased fire from his rivals as well as President of Trump’s re-campaign on the past controversial comments in support of the stop-and-frisk policing, which he once headed during his tenure as mayor of New York. And, he has also taken, as more and more of the past comments as sexist have been excavated.

This led to some political experts suspect that Bloomberg would be better if he could not qualify for the Wednesday in the debate – and avoid direct contact with his rival.


A longtime adviser to the Democrats, who asked to remain anonymous, free to speak more, also pointed to Bloomberg, on charisma is missing.

“Bloomberg would best served if he’s not on the debate stage before Super Tuesday, because the voters don’t see his mild personality and slowly debate reflexes react,” the strategist noted.

Bloomberg – regardless of whether he qualifies for the debate or not – is planned, in neighbouring Utah on Thursday evening to hold a rally in Salt Lake City.

Without ceasing in the Bloomberg Sanders war of words

Sanders – in front of an audience his campaign has been estimated, more than 10,000 people to the Rosie the Riveter WWII home front National Historical Park in Richmond, Calif., once again Bloomberg blasted.

“Mr. Bloomberg, like all the others, has a right to run for President,” said Sanders. But the populist senator, who is making his second straight White house run, said: “He does not have a right to buy the presidency, after all, he is mayor of New York and a racist stop-and-frisk policy.”

Hours earlier, Bloomberg’s campaign touted a new digital display Sanders Fans beat on their latest controversial rhetoric. The spot featured texts, tweets, and memes of people, seemed to be the Sanders supporters attacking rivals for the nomination.

Bloomberg in a tweet spotlighting the ad wrote, “we must unite to defeat the trump card in November. This type of “energy” is not going to get us there.”
