Bloomberg: There's A 55 Percent Chance Trump Is Re-elected Because Democrats Will Eat Each Other
Bruni recently interviewed former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who said—more or less—that Democrats are going to “step on each other” fighting Trump, giving the president a 55 percent chance of getting re-elected:
Ah, politics. I knew we’d get there. Bloomberg, an independent who opposed Donald Trump, said that Democrats never found an effective message. “Hillary said, ‘Vote for me because I’m a woman and the other guy’s bad,’ ” he said.
They’re still searching for the right issues and words, he said, and too many have visions of 2020 dancing in their heads.
“They’ll step on each other and re-elect Donald
Trump,” he told me, estimating “a 55 percent chance he gets re-elected.”The Left will eat each other. Well, given the friction between the Bernie wing of the party and the more establishment camp, though still thoroughly left wing; it’s not an insane projection. Moreover, many thought that Trump wouldn’t win last year.
Fifty-five percent? Whether good for my longevity or not, I need a cookie.
