    Bloomberg Qualifies for Las Vegas Debate Thanks to Last Minute Poll

    Bloomberg Qualifies for Las Vegas Debate Thanks to Last Minute Poll

    He has “19 percent support in a Marist, Newshour and NPR/PBS poll.”

    Former NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg has qualified for the Las Vegas debate on Wednesday night due to a last-minute poll.

    Candidates need to have “at least one delegate in the first two contests, have four national polls showing the candidate with 10% or more or two state polls from either South Carolina or Nevada showing the candidate with 12% or more support.”

    Bloomberg is in second place in the Marist, Newshour and NPR/PBS poll.

    From Fox News:

    The former New York City mayor and 2020 presidential candidate qualified for the Nevada Democratic Presidential Primary Debate at the last minute, notching 19 percent support in a Marist, Newshour and NPR/PBS poll, the fourth national poll to put him above the 10 percent mark since Jan. 15. That means the billionaire, who has spent more than $400 million of his fortune on advertising, meets the polling threshold set by the DNC for the debate.

    Bloomberg will be on the debate stage, his campaign confirmed in a statement.

    “Our campaign is seeing a groundswell of support across the country, and qualifying for the February 19 debate is the latest sign that Mike’s plan and ability to defeat Donald Trump is resonating with more and more Americans,” campaign manager Kevin Sheekey said Tuesday morning. “Mike is looking forward to joining the other Democratic candidates on stage and making the case for why he’s the best candidate to defeat Donald Trump and unite the country. The opportunity to discuss his workable and achievable plans for the challenges facing this country is an important part of the campaign process.”

    This will be the first time Bloomberg will appear in a debate after entering the presidential race in November.

    The poll results:

    • Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) 31%
    • Bloomberg 19%
    • Former Vice President Joe Biden 15%
    • Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) 12%
    • Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) 9%
    • Former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg 8%
    • Tom Steyer 2%
    • Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (R-HI) <1%

    Bloomberg already met the 10% threshold in polls from Quinnipiac University, Monmouth University, and Fox News.

    He skipped out on Iowa and New Hampshire. He has a place on the stage tomorrow night even though he will not appear on the caucus ballot on Saturday night.

    Bloomberg has spent more than $300 million of his own money on ads, spamming everyone’s television.

    Good take down of Mini Mike by Tucker.

    let me guess the poll questions…
    Q: have you heard of bloomberg or seen any of his ads?
    Q:Do you want trump out of office?

    Hey Mike, add another one to the support side !!

    or maybe not, who the hell knows.

    we can’t teach him how to plant a field and grow corn but we can watch him dig a hole and learn to code polls in it….

    Warren really doomed her own campaign.

    She thought she could tack left and push Bernie out of the way because he is an unelectable Socialist. She thought she could steal his supporters by being the more reasonable Democrat espousing the same socialist BS he does but without the Socialist tag. She would then win the nomination and tack back to the middle for the general.

    What she under-estimated is that Bernie is a cult leader, there is no way his followers would abandon him so now she is stuck. She can’t beat Bernie yet Biden has imploded and she has surrendered the middle with the tack left and disavowal of corporate money so Mini Mike swooped right in to fill the vacuum and she is toast.

    Fabulous outcome. The D’s will likely be running a Socialist or a Billionaire who bought the nomination for about $1B. No way Bernie’s crew votes for Mini Mike in the general and vice versa all but ensuring a second term for DJT.

      Warren is the most dangerous kind of politician. Zero principles or beliefs in anything…she just wants power and will say or imitate anything she thinks is necessary to do it.

      I am thankful for two things:

      1. She’s not very good at this imitation game

      2. There are still enough useful leftist idiots to see through it. While watching her get trounced in the general would be amusing, it would be a sad commentary on the divide in our country were she to win the nomination. That said, Sanders won’t make for a much better commentary if he wins it.
