Is Michael Bloomberg really running for president?


Hi, I’m Ben White, Chief Economic Correspondent for Politico, with your U.S. Politics In just 60 Seconds. Alright, let’s start the clock. Well, it’s a huge week for Democrats, starting Wednesday. They’ll take testimony from State Department officials saying that they believe there was a quid pro quo between Trump and Ukraine aid in return for an investigation of Joe Biden. They need to both shape public opinion and try to crack the GOP wall of support for Trump. He is, as I wrote on Politico this morning. Lots of young bankers like his socially liberal, but fiscally more prudent approach. So, he’s raising a lot of money there. I now have my doubts. Polls out this weekend show him at 4 percent among Democrats. Not a good number. And Mike Bloomberg is not a guy who rolls the dice on longshots. Does fine against Trump but the problem is getting there. So, I think there’s a good chance that this Bloomberg boomlet also fails. I’m Ben White for Politico.
