Michael Bloomberg Ranks Below Nearly All Other Candidates in New Iowa Poll

Buttigieg has gained in every demographic category, with his support now at 26% among voters who describe themselves as moderate or conservative, 23% among those who are somewhat liberal, and 15% among those who are very liberal. "But I really can not imagine that Democrats in the Super Tuesday states would be significantly more receptive to him than Iowa voters", Murray said.

Bloomberg and his nascent campaign has already acknowledged that he has no shot at making the debates or winning early states, but that it isn't an issue because he's focusing on Super Tuesday states, something he can only do because his obscene wealth would allow him to stay in the contest for, I don't know, probably a couple hundred years if he wanted to blow it all.

No wonder billionaire hedge fund manager (and sometimes plagiarist) Leon Cooperman wasted zero time in getting behind Bloomberg, and Recode reported that Jeff Bezos personally called Bloomberg to ask him if he'd consider running for president. The only other candidates that requested petitions are Democrat Tom Steyer and Republicans Robert Breton Phillips and Roque De La Fuente. With dismal numbers like these, it's easy to see why.

Bloomberg, a billionaire who served three terms as the mayor of New York City, has yet to officially declare his candidacy for the presidential race.

After saying in March that he wouldn't run for president, Bloomberg is preparing a potential run for a 2020 bid, in part, because he does not believe anyone in the current field of Democrats will be able to defeat President Donald Trump.

President Trump seemed to disagree with Wolfson's assessment, welcoming a challenge from Bloomberg.

Pete Buttigieg led the poll with a favorability rating of 73 percent overall. In tweets Thursday, Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders responded to Bloomberg's interest in the race. "He is doing well with voters regardless of education or ideology", said Patrick Murray, the director of the independent Monmouth University Polling Institute.
