The "little Michael" will fail, after he had "spent a lot of money," sneered Donald Trump on Twitter weeks ago via Michael Bloomberg , the new presidential candidate of the Democrats. "He has the magic to do well," scoffed the US President more. The two New York combines a mutual dislike. "Unfortunately, we have a President who failed in business and now in Governance is failing," said Bloomberg, New York's former mayor. With assets of 54 billion dollars, the media entrepreneur, Bloomberg, the allegedly three times the real estate billionaire Trump arm appearance.
"I think I would beat Donald Trump", let Bloomberg last March, in a statement. Nevertheless, he refused at the time to be a candidate, "because it is difficult to create in the large field of Democrats to the nomination". The 77-Year-old now because he's not supposed to be with the current Candidates satisfied. Joe Biden schwächle, and Elizabeth Warren is to the left, is the response from Bloomberg's environment, such as the New York Times reported.
Bloomberg is presenting the Democrats as the "new Alternative" and is the only candidate that Trump can defeat. His first campaign video, Bloomberg's addresses Act as "Jobschaffer, Leader and problem solver". In doing so, he refers to his experience as a businessman and mayor. "I can win and lead," says Bloomberg in its election message. "We can't afford four more years of Donald trump's reckless and unethical Act." To Start his campaign under the slogan "America rebuild".

Bloomberg's concerns in his party's popular, so, for example, climate protection, the fight against gun violence, as well as higher taxes for the Rich takes. As a moderate Democrat who was formerly a Republican, and thus Choosing the right the middle might appeal to, would Bloomberg be quite intact chances against the incumbent in the White house. Prior to the campaign against Trump, he needs to convince the left-trending party based on the Democrats from themselves. And that is likely to be anything other than easy, because there are sometimes violent resistance.
In the first analysis of political experts Bloomberg to be given to rather small chances in the nomination process. Bloomberg standing at his candidacy in front of large obstacles, writes about the "New York Times". Similarly, the political website "fivethirtyeight sees it": "The nomination chances are not very good." Bloomberg could beat Trump, commented on the "Los Angeles Times", "but he can also beat Elizabeth Warren?"
In the so-called progressive camp of the Democrats, Bloomberg's candidacy is not good. The new presidential candidate and Senator Bernie Sanders, who, like the aspiring Senator Warren to be the favorites of the party of the left, has been reported to prompt a critical word: "We do not believe that billionaires have the right to buy the options . Multi-billionaires like Michael Bloomberg will not get very far."

In Parts of the Democrats Bloomberg as too rich, too little left, to old. He also has to contend with the Legacy of his time as mayor of New York. In his tenure, there was the police tactic of "Stop and frisk" ("Stop and frisk"), which was a majority against Afro-Americans and Latinos, and therefore, as a racist has been criticized. Until recently, Bloomberg has apologized to the procedure for the Police, because for a successful candidacy, he needs the support of African-Americans and Latinos.
From the left-hand bearing is likely to overflow a few voters to the billionaire. With his candidacy, Bloomberg afflicted, especially the moderate presidential candidate, above all, Joe Biden. The former Vice-President of Barack Obama have so far considered the most promising presidential candidate of the Democrats. A real Frontrunner Biden is not. His previous campaign is not convincing.
wholesale attack on the "Super Tuesday" from 3. March
In comparison to the other 17 Candidates Bloomberg begins his campaign very late. He, however, has the advantage that he has more than enough money. 35 million dollars are already available for TV-choice advertising planned. 100 million for Anti-Trump Ads in social networks, which are directed to Dial in the Swing States. These are small amounts for the according to Forbes, nine of the wealthiest people in the world and only the beginning of a money battle. According to a consultant Bloomberg will spend "what is necessary to defeat Trump". Prior to that, he would have to be nominated in the summer of 2020 Democrats. In polls, he is only four percent. Reminder: trump's presidential candidacy for the elections of 2016 was initially, also as hopeless.
According to media reports, Bloomberg waived on the first four primaries on may 4. February 2020 in Iowa begin. He seems to be focused on a – probably very expensive – a large attack on the "Super Tuesday" from 3. In March, when 16 U.S. States, including California and Texas, primaries are held. If Bloomberg would cut off the "Super Tuesday" very successful, he could become a leading candidate for the Democrats. Thus, he would to his goal – the Nomination for the presidential election in 2020 – are coming closer.
