Bloomberg Draws Paltry Crowd of 45 at Heavily Advertised Rally

Bloomberg carpet-bombed the airwaves with commercials promoting the event.

Michael Bloomberg drew a puny crowd of 45 to a rally in San Antonio, Texas over the weekend, despite carpet-bombing the airwaves of local TV and radio stations with ads promoting the event.

Bloomberg’s campaign claimed the event was attended by 130 people, but sources indicate the crowd was much smaller. The megabillionaire oligarch and former New York City mayor was introduced by Judge Judy of reality TV show fame.

Bloomberg’s event was picketed by pro-Trump demonstrators, who were seen with ‘Trump 2020’ placards through the restaurant’s windows.

The massively wealthy oligarch has already shattered all-time records for campaign spending in a primary, dropping $34 million on a single ad buy placed at the beginning of his late campaign alone.

He’s spent more than $200 million on his campaign thus far-having been in the race for less than two months.

Bloomberg has eschewed a traditional primary campaign strategy of focusing on early-voting states such as New Hampshire and Iowa to harness momentum, instead focusing on bigger states such as California and Texas. With the former Wall Street businessman’s personal net worth of more than $57 billion, it seems as if he’s planning on shamelessly buying his way to the top of the Democratic primary.

However, Bloomberg’s shameless strategy might be more transparent with Democratic primary voters than he realizes. He’s failed to gain serious momentum in the primary, pushing to around 5% in polling averages but failing to seriously challenge current frontrunners such as Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

Bloomberg may be the most anti-gun Democrat currently running. He’s orchestrated operations to pass draconian packages of gun control legislation in states such as Virginia,

Michael Bloomberg SLAMMED in Dem Debate Pile-On

The billionaire was targeted by the Democratic primary field.

Published

on

Michael Bloomberg was a target for the Democratic Primary field during his first debate stage appearance on Wednesday, being roundly criticized by several of the other five Democratic candidates participating.

The debate, held in Las Vegas days before the Nevada caucuses, differed from previous events on account of the smaller number of candidates.

Bloomberg has skyrocketed to a competitive second place in most polling of the Democratic primary, seeming to siphon most of Joe Biden’s support and staking out a claim as the Democrat to take on Bernie Sanders. The New York billionaire, who has not appeared on the ballot in the first two primary states, is aiming for a string of Super Tuesday victories.

Elizabeth Warren may have landed the most concrete blow of the night on the record-setting campaign spender, calling out Bloomberg for a history of insensitive remarks targeting women. She also went on to question Bloomberg about reports of him forcing women to sign non-disclosure agreements after sexually harassing them.

It’s probably safe to say that Bloomberg was the biggest loser of the night. The debate represented the first opportunity for the billionaire to face criticism from other Democrats, and he generally failed to answer the ire of the primary field with anything too meaningful.

Bloomberg’s biggest moment of the night may have been when he called out Sanders for owning three homes, likening him to the billionaires the democratic socialist frequently criticizes.

Sanders hit Bloomberg on his controversial record of instituting ‘Stop and Frisk’ policing practices as mayor of New York City, claiming that the program was discriminatory against Black and Latino people.

Even Buttigieg, a candidate who is well-funded by billionaire campaign donors, hit Bloomberg for his blatant attempt to buy the Democratic nomination. The somewhat more rancorous tone of the debate made previous walk-in-the-park debates appear to be a snoozefest.

Considering he at least implicitly is the frontrunner for the nomination, it’s probably safe to say Bernie Sanders exited the debate as the de facto winner. Sanders holds a resounding lead in polling for the upcoming Nevada caucuses, and a win coupled with a blow to Bloomberg’s campaign could give him the momentum required for a dominant Super Tuesday performance.
