    Michael Bloomberg: 55% chance Trump is re-elected

    Was surprised by this, anyone think he has presidential aspirations as well?

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg thinks there's a "55 percent chance" President Trump will be reelected in 2020.

    Bloomberg, who politically identifies as independent, told New York Times columnist Frank Bruni that he thought Democrats didn't have an effective message to win the 2016 election and could repeat that mistake in 2020. He said Democrats are still looking for issues and messages. And he worries that too many Democrats are eager to jump into the 2020 race.

    They’ll step on each other and re-elect Donald Trump,” Bloomberg said. Bloomberg endorsed Hillary Clinton in 2016 and spoke at the Democratic National Convention, calling Trump a "dangerous demagogue."

    He has a point because the democrats are in disarray right now.

    However, Trump will have 4 years of a record to run on so it's basically up to him to win it or lose it. If Trump has a bad 4 years it won't matter who the democrats run, they will win, but if Trump has some big successes and the democrats can't get a good candidate with a message they will lose.

    That's the funny thing about elections, so, so many things that factor into them.

    No one has any idea what will happen in 3 1/2 years.

    Bloomberg may be just as right, or just as wrong as anyone else.

    There was a 50-50% chance Bloomberg was high on crack when he made that statement.

    Interesting the odds of him being elected in 2016 was ~4%... according to the Media odds makers.

    I think the odds are getting better, The investigators have found no evidence of collusion between trump and the Russians. But they have found evidnce of felonies committed by the obama administration, and the IC and Congressional committees are smelling the Blood, so they have to have a reason for their existence, so, this is not Good for the obamalamadingdongs, and Democrats Their "Get Trump" is taking a "Get Shorty" Twist, and the gun they pulled is about to go off in their faces.
