NEW YORK – New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has quietly been polling and conducting a highly sophisticated voter analysis in all 50 states as he decides whether to launch an independent presidential bid, associates said Wednesday.
The exhaustive data collection started months ago, and when the review begins shortly, it will provide the data-obsessed billionaire businessman with the information he will use to decide whether to make a third-party run for the White House.
It could very well happen….Ross Perot showed us that a man with money running independently can be very dangerous for an election. I’m not ashamed to say I’d vote for him. The man is so obsessed with statistics he’d have the economy running smoothly, not to mention he’d let the military do it’s thing without politicizing their every action.
The only question would be, who would he tap for a VP?
Update by Nate
Bloomberg isn’t even popular among New York City residents as a presidential candidate, I really don’t think residents of Iowa or any other state for that matter are going to be that interested in him either.
Still, he has the cash and could immediately become a candidate if he wanted to and fund his own campaign.
