Bloomberg Polling at 1% in Iowa

Michael Bloomberg’s got a plan. It just doesn’t make much sense.

He’s skipping the debates because he’s not accepting donations and thus won’t qualify. That probably only helps him, because his performance at an actual debate would be terrible. Instead he’s planning to use his vast cash hoard to reach voters directly. Probably with a whole lot of ads.

But even the world’s best admen can’t sell a truly mediocre product. And that’s what he is.

Bloomberg isn’t going to try and compete in the overcrowded early primaries. Instead, he’s presumably hoping to take California and New York. That’s probably a better bet than trying for Iowa.

Only 2 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire told Quinnipiac that they would “definitely vote” for Bloomberg, although an additional 37 percent did say they would “consider voting” for him. And in a Monmouth poll of Iowa, Bloomberg earned the support of less than 1 percent of likely Democratic caucusgoers.
