Can’t Buy Me Love

Politico reports:

Mike Bloomberg’s presidential campaign has brought on more than 700 staffers spread out across 33 states, with a growing number of organizers joining his ranks in states that vote on Super Tuesday, aides told POLITICO. All told, the former New York mayor’s operation totals more than 1,000 people, a figure that includes hundreds of staffers who work out of his Manhattan headquarters. The unprecedented scale and scope of the campaign — he has also spent over $200 million on TV ads — gives Bloomberg a massive footprint in states that hold their primaries on March 3 or later …”

That’s a lot of money. He must be surging in the polls, right?

His Real Clear Polling average for January 3rd through 14th is 6.6%. Compare this to Joe Biden at 27.2%, Bernie Sanders at 19.2% and Elizabeth Warren at 16.0%.

His record as Mayor does not appear to be helping him with Democrats.  I have seen his ads running in the NYC media market.  Why?  After 12 years in office everyone knows who he is.  They obviously don’t think he the man for the job.

  1. Bloomberg’s money is toxic now, as it has been in the past. That is to say that the more he spends, the worse he loses. People do not want to be seen as having had their votes bought, so the more that Bloomberg tries to buy votes, the more he fails. The Beatles song, “Can’t Buy Me Love”, comes to mind.
