i actually dont think so. he's said he'll support the dem nominee and as bad as he is i dont think its expedient for him to lie about that.

there'll definitely be some other 'major' third party candidate though is bernie is the nom

He can't even beat most of the candidates. His money really is just better spent supporting the Democratic nominee if his only goal is to make sure Trump loses.

That'd be so terribly ironic after all the moderate Dems screamed and cried that Bernie was going to hand the election to Trump in 2016 by not conceding early enough. If Bloomberg went forward as a 3rd party candidate he'd be handing Trump a victory on a silver platter.

If Bloomberg really hates Trump with all his heart (one only has to recall his speech at the DNC in 2016 to realize he does) then he will not run third party.

wonder if he runs if sanders wins the nomination. he probably hates him and dislikes trump somewhat.

nope he's innit to winnit. 3rd party runs are for show boaters, he wouldn't be using the dem primary as a conduit otherwise

10-20 years ago maybe but he's old, super tuesday is his now or never moment and i don't see why he'd bother past that

No 3rd party run. But he won’t be spending Bloomberg bucks on Bernie because he’s a petty motherfucker.

If you post the long string of pictures multiple times does it magically begin to depict relevant scenes from after 2016?

On the one hand he's an egomaniac and an awful person, on the other, he desperately wants to be liked and there's no surer path to being hated than playing spoiler in this election.


My gut says he would not.

Was it him or was it Steyer who said they'd keep pumping millions of dollars in advertising for whoever the Dem nominee is?

If the numbers make sense for him he definitely could. It wouldn't cost him that much to simply run a guaranteed to fail campaign and siphon votes away from Bernie.

Nah. He doesn't like Trump (allegedly). He knows that will lead to 4 more years of Trump.
