Doug Schoen: Michael Bloomberg is 'most substantive' of potential 2020 Dem nominees

It takes another New York billionaire to beat Trump? Ex-mayor Michael Bloomberg preparing to run as Democrat in 2020

Bloomberg opens door to 2020 Democratic run for U.S. president

"If I'm not mistaken, I'm doing quite well, both in relation to Trump and to all the people who run", he said. He said a lot of great things about Trump.

'He'll spend a lot of money, and he's got some really big issues.

"Little Michael will fail", Trump told reporters at the White House, apparently re-upping his demeaning nickname of the multibillionaire.

In a statement, Bloomberg adviser Howard Wolfson said: "We now need to finish the job and ensure that Trump is defeated".

In Arkansas, another Super Tuesday state, a Democratic Party spokesperson said a person representing a "mystery candidate" reached out Thursday afternoon asking about the requirements to join the ballot. In fact, that deadline is today, which is why, as the New York Times' report put it, Bloomberg is "expected to file paperwork this week designating himself as a candidate in at least one state".

"There is not any constituency for Michael Bloomberg that's not already accepted by one of those candidates that are running", explained Charles Chamberlain, seat of this Vermont-based innovative group Democracy for America.

A Bloomberg adviser says the former mayor has not made a final decision on whether to run. Late Thursday night, it was reported that Bloomberg was set to run for president as evidenced by an effort to beat the deadline to be on the Alabama ballot.

Mr Bloombergs team also contacted Gina Raimondo, the governor of Rhode Island and the chairwoman of the Democratic Governors Association.

"He's a phenomenal entrepreneur and businessman", Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang said. But the two party leaders added they "are certain" voters in their states and other early states "are eager to ask Michael Bloomberg about his plans to move our states and our country forward". "I don't see any evidence that strategy ever works".

Trump praised Bloomberg for leading NY after 9/11 and decreasing crime in the city.

Bloomberg warns the current field of Democratic candidates is ill equipped to defeat Trump next year.

Opinion polls reveal three contenders battling on peak of the Democratic race: U.S. Senators Elizabeth Warren of MA and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who directs the wing, and medium Joe Biden, the former vice president. "Michael is a solid guy and let's see where it goes". "I have no problem with him getting in the race".

Some recent opinion polls have suggested that Ms Warren and Mr Sanders - who are regarded as to the left of Mr Biden - might lose against President Trump if either won the party nomination. "And I believe I would defeat Donald Trump in a general election", he wrote.

The 77-year-old politician will run against current Democratic candidates with a capitalist mindset and $50 billion net worth, FOX Business' Stuart Varney said.
