Mike Bloomberg, the billionaire threatening to enter the Democratic primary race due to Joe Biden's supposedly weak showing for the center, scores only 4% in the first poll to include his name. This puts him in sixth place, behind not only Biden but other moderates who might benefit from his support. Interest in him is so low that it isn't even possible to see where he's getting the 4% from; all the front-runners' own numbers seem unaffected by his entry to the polling pool.
Bloomberg’s initial entrance would do little to disrupt the current state of play, according to the national survey of 2,225 registered voters who indicated they may vote in the Democratic primary or caucus in their state, which had a margin of error of 2 percentage points. At 31 percent, former Vice President Joe Biden held his spot as the race’s front-runner, while Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), with 20 percent and 18 percent, respectively, continue to vie for second.
It's obviously a vanity candidacy, even assuming Biden is a sinking ship. I can't help but suspect that the only reason for a rich centrist to run instead of supporting Harris, Klobuchar, Buttigieg or Booker is what might generously be called "historical thinking" about the electability of minorities in general and women in particular.

Longtime Donald Trump consigliere Roger Stone is due in prison next week. Facebook on Wednesday took down 50 personal and professional pages connected to the U.S. President’s former adviser, about 10 years after it would do any good.
It’s almost shocking to say…but there’s actually an incredible amount of manhood wrapped up in how well you cook a steak. Of course, no one would argue your grilling abilities are THAT important. Or that how well you sear a prime slab of beef should have any bearing on your social standing or feeling of […]
The notion of two people sleeping in the same bed always inspires romantic visions of love and intimacy. However, most quickly realize that the romance of sleeping together is often quickly replaced by the realities of the act. One partner snores. The other talks in their sleep. One grinds their teeth. The other hogs the […]
Add Internet of Things to the shortlist of those actually benefiting from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. You might not realize it, but the organizing principle that is bringing more automation to the world is actually proving to be a major asset as human beings are forced to stay home and away from the […]
