Now that billionaire Michael Bloomberg has entered the race, things are going to change. The strategies for all of the top four other candidates changes and the rest of the candidates who remain can essentially pack up their campaigns and go home. But the most important change is that the nomination process will either be rapidly hastened or drawn out for much longer than it needed to be. Everything depends on how well Bloomberg does on Super Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020.
The “moderate” lane of Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg has a new non-socialist in the mix. Bloomberg, who has been a Republican and an Independent in the past, will paint himself as the common sense alternative to Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. For this reason, we can expect the Justice Democrats and their two radical progressive candidates to come after Bloomberg hard, at least at first. Will it be enough to stop him?
For Republicans, the question becomes, “Do we want them to stop him?” While some may have a knee-jerk reaction that Bloomberg is a threat to President Trump, I would counter that he represents a fissure in the Democratic Party. If President Trump defeats him, the progressive wing of the party will openly fight against the Democratic Establishment even more than they have already, which will split the party more than it has ever been. It’s their nomination to make, but that doesn’t mean Republicans can’t hope for a favorable outcome.
Now, let’s answer a few questions.
Can he actually win the nomination?
Yes. His strategy is clear: Everything comes down to Super Tuesday. While the other candidates are fighting for Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina, Bloomberg will be putting all of his efforts into the 14 states up for grabs on March 3rd. He will be especially focused on California, the most expensive state to campaign in with over a dozen major markets for which to make ad buys. If he can not only win it but keep other candidates from reaching the 15% threshold to receive delegates, he could wrap up the nomination for all intents and purposes in a single day.
Don’t get caught unprepared as things go south. Order a case of five life-saving antibiotics prescribed directly to you by board certified physicians. Use promo code “RUCKER10” for $10 off. Having an emergency supply of antibiotics is crucial before the crap hits the fan.
But that is very unlikely. What’s more likely is he’s able to steal the thunder from other frontrunners who have earned delegates in the first four states. By having a strong showing on Super Tuesday, Bloomberg would eliminate all but the four frontrunners. He could even knock off one or two of the four if they also fail to have good showings in the early states. It’s hard to imagine both Sanders and Warren continuing forward beyond Super Tuesday. Whichever candidate is leading at that point will call on the other to unite the hyper-leftists in their battle against the Establishment.
This is where it gets sticky for Bloomberg. If he’s only able to eliminate a progressive and is still splitting the moderate vote with Biden and/or Buttigieg, it could make his path much harder. Despite the fact that he has more money than all of the candidates combined (including Tom Steyer and President Trump), he may not have the stomach to turn this into a $500 million primary campaign. But that may be what it takes if his message hasn’t resonated strongly enough or if his showing on Super Tuesday is lackluster.
Bottom line, yes, he can win the nomination. At this early stage I’d say his chances are about equal to Biden’s and Sanders’.
Who can stop him?
Only the progressives can stop him now. Sanders and Warren have made their campaigns about attacking the rich, and only seven or eight people in America are richer than Michael Bloomberg. But their hatred for people like Bloomberg may be enough to keep him from getting the nomination. Their way is the way of the New Democratic Party. They have taken intersectionality and victimhood to extreme levels, rallying their bases to believe all of their problems can be attributed to the people who promote capitalism. Bloomberg may be radical when it comes to gun control and climate change, but he’s still a capitalist.
A lot of it will depend on whether or not the Justice Democrats use their influence and resources to attack Bloomberg or if they’ll put their focus on taking over Capitol Hill. As much as they hate what Bloomberg represents, they may view his nomination as a necessary evil for them to ride the blue wave he may create. If they stick to congressional races and ignore the presidential nomination altogether, they may be able to set themselves up for a socialist government to emerge right around the time when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is of presidential age.
Then again, they come from the Sanders camp. They were born from his revolution. The desire to see him or Warren in the White House may be too alluring for them to ignore Bloomberg. It all comes down to whether they’re willing to sacrifice their dreams of today for a socialist vision for tomorrow. If they ignore or even embrace him as the enemy of their enemy, then Bloomberg’s chances of winning the nomination will go up. If they put their foot down, they could rally enough radicals in places like California to slow if not stop him.
Should President Trump fear a Bloomberg nomination?
This is the billion-dollar question. Bloomberg represents a type of candidate that, at least on the surface, is a strong match for the President. He’s a moderate whose radical views fall in line with a strong plurality of the country. On gun control and climate change, he’s an unabashed progressive, but he embraces a populist healthcare plan that offers government coverage to everyone without taking private coverage away from anyone. That combination is a worst-case-scenario for President Trump.
But if we dig a little deeper, we will see a Bloomberg nomination is not as damaging to the President as it seems on the surface. Bloomberg’s biggest weakness is his inability to rally the young, idealistic voters who view old rich white people as the devil. Could Bloomberg pull from the center, a group the President needs in order to win? Yes. But lest we forget, so did Hillary Clinton. She was, in many ways, more moderate than Bloomberg. But she was painted as a radical to voters, and Bloomberg will be painted the same way. Just as she couldn’t inspire the progressive wing to come out for her, so too will Bloomberg fail to get the vote out among those who simply don’t like the status quo they believe he represents.
Compared to Clinton, Bloomberg has one attribute that will turn off many Independents. He’s as radical as it comes regarding the 2nd Amendment. He’s Beto O’Rourke and Eric Swalwell, only with money behind him. And that will hurt him in the general election. O’Rourke and Swalwell may have said radical things about guns, but Bloomberg has DONE radical things about guns. His gun confiscation model will not play well in flyover country, and that includes important states like Ohio, Wisconsin, and Colorado.
I’m not ready to say a Bloomberg nomination would be ideal for President Trump to be reelected. After all, money goes a long way to determining the winner, and with over $50 billion at his disposal, he has the resources to literally buy the nomination and general election if he so chooses. But so far he hasn’t said he’s willing to invest a good chunk of his own money with some sources citing $100 million as his magic number. That’s not enough to buy the nomination, let alone the election. I would be shocked if he doesn’t spend at least $300 million before Super Tuesday.
It would be ironic if the “woke” Democratic Party comes together to nominate an old white heterosexual male billionaire to solve their problems. Whatever happens with Bloomberg’s run, we know this: the 2020 election season is going to be insane.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
