Bloomberg Has Spent More than $200 Million and May Not Win a Single Delegate

Michael Bloomberg has been in the presidential race only 7 weeks, and he’s already spent $200 million, according to ad tracker Advertising Analytics. The rest of the entire Democratic field has only spent $220 million.

The RealClearPolitics polling average over the last month has Bloomberg at 5.8 percent, although he’s doing slightly better recently.

All that money and not much love from Democratic voters. Bloomberg has said he’s willing to spend a billion dollars to defeat Donald Trump, but how much is he going to spend on his own vanity campaign for president?

Not that he can’t afford it, but at what point does it get silly? According to this story in the Daily Beast, Bloomberg isn’t pulling enough support to win one single delegate to the convention.

The Democratic National Committee’s primary rules stipulate that a candidate must win 15 percent of the vote statewide or 15 percent by any congressional district in order to collect any delegates. Internal models do not show Bloomberg above 10 percent in any of the first four early voting states—Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina, where he is intentionally ceding by bypassing campaigning there–or any district in the 15 delegate-rich states set to vote on March 3.

“Based on polling I’ve seen, both public and private, Bloomberg isn’t on track to pick up a single delegate on the Super Tuesday states, even places he’s got endorsements,” one unattached top strategist familiar with the delegate process told The Daily Beast. “Not nearly enough to get to 15 percent right now.”

The internal models  are particularly problematic given that Bloomberg’s unconventional primary strategy rests on a strong Super Tuesday showing. Having decided to opt out of competing in the first four states—a tactic none of his rivals have used—his campaign is strategizing around the March 3 event’s potential to kick off a wave of successes that will ultimately translate into a win for the Democratic nomination.

Does Bloomberg’s strategy even translate as a “long shot”? At least with a long shot, you have a chance. Bloomberg is spending all this money, saturating national TV with ads, and isn’t even cracking 15 percent.

The fat lady isn’t even going to bother to warm up.

By bypassing the early primaries, Bloomberg has put himself at a huge disadvantage.

Dave Jacobson, a Democratic media consultant based in Los Angeles, said Bloomberg is building an unprecedented state apparatus,  hiring top political hands like Chris Myers, the former executive director of the state’s Democratic Party. “He’s got a lot of high-profile people who he’s brought into the fold,” he said. “It’s unclear what kind of impact that will have.”

Still, Jacobson and multiple other unaffiliated strategists pointed to the momentum boost of the earlier states having a potentially disproportionate impact on how California Democrats will vote, with perceived electability playing a part of that.

Bloomberg can spend another $200 million over the next 7 weeks if he wants. The question is, why? Does he enjoy being humiliated? Maybe Trump snookered him in a business deal in the past. Something is driving Bloomberg beyond naked ambition to run a campaign that will only end in embarrassment.

Bernie Sanders has said that Bloomberg wanted to “buy” the nomination. The only thing he’s purchasing is an historical failure of epic proportions.

  1. The Globalist Liberal NAZI Demoncrat Commie party and the useful idiots don’t give a crap about gun violence! They just want to take away your guns to leave you defenseless against Government tyranny! Wake up patriots before it’s too late! Defend the 2nd amendment!

      1. I WISHED HE WOULD QUIT SPENDING IT IN TN. THE IDIOT HAS NO CHANCE HERE BUT I GUESS WHEN YOU WANT TO LIGHTEN YOUR WALLET YOU CAN SPEND IT ANY WAY YOU WANT, WHAT AN IDIOT

      2. Darn shame about all he’s supporting with that money is the lying media. His one piece of propaganda runs so many times on tv here that I know the words by heart. Seems he singlehandedly saved New York only to have the place fall apart after he left. Save our metropolitan areas! Send Bloomberg back to New York and Obama back to Chicago

    1. To spend that kind of money to try and oust a President that has done so much for our country.. he could use that money on homeless vets.. building them homes, medication. or help the homeless on the streets. I have no respect for him. I hope he loses and all of his money is in vain.

    1. You are correct..The DEMOCOMMUNISTS have been OPENLY opining they are going to SAY and DO anything they can to ensure a “win”. SO my friends, expect more of the same VOTER FRAUD, ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS that are not only “allowed”, but encouraged to vote, (here in communist-run N.Y and probably other demon-crat -run states).. incarcerated prisoners were given ballots to vote while IN JAIL, convicted felons on parole “allowed” to vote, “multiple voters” bused from place to place by soros-owned buses, democommunist “absentee ballots” that will AGAIN be “found ” in trunks of cars, more democommunist midnight back -alley “absentee ballot deliveries” to the voting booths, “dead people” voting “absentee”and the old “stand by”
      those soros-company touch-screen “voting machines” PROVEN by citizens taking photos and videos changing YOUR vote from Republican to democommunist in the blink of an eye. SO as you can see, keep you eyes open, and TRY to report any illegal goings-on because the democommunist have obviously perfected the “art” of CHEATING to “win” at all costs.

  2. Well, the icing on the cake was making “Big Gulps”, illegal! Wow! Who would be so foolish as to elect someone that Obsessive and Controlling? If it were not a serious indication of Tyrannical potential, it would be hilarious. Kinda still is!

  3. Time for Democrats to gather in California, build their own wall, Completely around it and stay there. Take Romney with you.

  4. THE DEMOCRAPPERS ARE DONE AND ITS OVER FOR THEIR PARTY. NO MORE DEMOCRAPPERS TO BE ELECTED IN THE USA. PISS ON THE DEMOCRAPPERS.

    TRUMP, TRUMP, TRUMP FOR 2024.

    1. Not only is Steyer an old, white, billionaire, he made his money by investing in fossil fuels. He’s everything the Democrat Party is supposedly against. That these two have any standing in the Democrat Party is _proof_ of the intellectual bankruptcy of the Democrat Party.

  5. Bloomberg is unlikable. That’s a hard thing for a candidate of any kind to over come. But when even his own party dislikes him it.s impossible.

  6. In Oklahoma, his ads claim that he did so much for people in new York. He took their tax dollars to promote gun bans and confiscations. He promoted his personnel agenda, not the peoples needs. And he got richer while in office. just another self serving Democrap, that wile enslave the people of the United States of America. Wake up America and walk away from the lies of the Democrap Party. Their agenda is plane an simple, “Dictatorship with every one being their slaves. We have had civil war, world war, and multible other wars to stop socialism and all forms of dictatorship and it is time that we stand up and defend our country from the threat from within and refuse to vote for any democrap or any of their insane rules, and delinquent ideals.

  7. I’m a little surprised Bloomberg has any power and influence within the Democrat Party at all. His experience in elective office was as a _Republican_; he’s an old, white, billionaire.
