One of the few disadvantages of being back to work is that I no longer am free to watch the various debates that I was free to watch when my shoulder was newly busted so I was shocked when I got home and DaWife was hot to talk about how Elizabeth Warren (who she can’t stand, DaWife is all in on Trump) beat his living ass off and cheered the questions she asked him.
I checked online and the only story everywhere was how bad Mike Bloomberg had been massacred by Elizabeth Warren.
Everyone is hitting him hard but there are three things to note.
- The election isn’t tomorrow
- The people who are going to decide this primary are 1000 times more likely to have seen a Bloomberg Ad then this debate
- His money hasn’t gone anywhere.
Cheers from an audience of Democrat activists not withstanding and media hits not withstanding Bloomberg isn’t going anywhere but more than that there is now increased interest in the NEXT debate.
That’s when it will matter because people love a spectacle and a lot of people who likely didn’t care about that last debate will turn into the next one to see what happens.
That is Bloomberg’s opening.
If Bloomberg puts on a good show in the next debate when voters are paying attention than the egg he laid yesterday will be quickly forgotten.
Furthermore the reality is that while Communism & Socialism is pretty popular among Democrat activists I suspect it’s not as popular among a lot of Democrats in swing states that they need for a shot at Potus.
Now if Bloomberg lays a 2nd egg at a time when people are more likely to be watching then it might be time to cut bait although literally 1000’s of consultants making great money will implore him not to.
But until that happens anyone who counts Bloomberg out is a fool.
