If Bloomberg gets the nom, will Bernie supporters (and all other Dems) come out and vote for him in the general? If not, please consider that you’re likely indirectly giving up a Supreme Court seat.

I think Bloomberg is scary. Trump is a brainless racist. But Bloomberg has brain, and can cause a lot more damage than Trump. I would be so on the fence if Bloomberg buys the nomination.

Good point. All those Bernie supporters had better support the eventual nominee no matter what!

Most didn’t support Hillary, don’t see that changing this time around either.

President Bloomberg. I like the sounds of it. Either way, we may likely have a Jewish president.

Hardcore Bernie supporters are the only group that are 50-50 about voting for the eventual democratic nominee.

No, a vote for Bloomberg is a vote of confidence for doubling down on financial repression and negotiating away national interests for financial interests.

The majority, yes. The BernieBros, who are really "Bernie or Bust" or "Bernie or Trump", no. They are a very vocal, very obnoxious minority.

I voted for Warren in the primary but I really like Bernie too. I would vote for Bloomberg if he gets the nomination. Not even a contest between him and the other choice.

On tactics tho, Trump def fears Bloomberg because of his capacity to buy the nomination and party. Which is the exact argument “money out of politics” arguments from the left has made for decades, (rightly.) Basically his run is the quintessential “everyone has a number.” It’s kinda gross.

I’d vote for Bloomberg. Bernie is too far left for the moderate bulk of the population that’s on the fence. Not sure if Bernie supporters would vote for another nominee. It’s the liberal version of Trump supporters as far as cult following. Besides, many Bernie supporters eventually ended up not voting for Hillary either.

After that performance last night if you are still with Bloomy you are just on the payroll or a bogus 401k consultant class social engineer, who can avoid the cloaked inflation crushing everyone else.

Bloomberg is a Republican, he will also appoint Republican judges. Also racist, and all the other words to describe Trump except maybe dumb. He also has massive authoritarian beliefs he’s shown. No thanks, at least Trump is getting checked somewhat.

Maybe, or you are making the argument that nothing is wrong with the establishment order. 20% inflation for trappings of upwardly mobile life, punish savers make students into debt serfs. Populists did not do that.
