Following a Super Tuesday in which former Vice President Joe Biden crushed the competition, other Democrat presidential hopefuls are seriously re-evaluating their chances after dismal performances.
Former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg, who once believed he could shamelessly buy the presidential nomination, has officially bowed out of the race.
“Three months ago, I entered the race for President to defeat Donald Trump,” Bloomberg said in a statement. “Today, I am leaving the race for the same reason: to defeat Donald Trump — because it is clear to me that staying in would make achieving that goal more difficult.”
Bloomberg, who has been dubbed “Mini Mike” by President Trump for his diminutive stature, was one of the biggest losers of Super Tuesday. He only won the primary in American Samoa and failed in every other contest.
“After yesterday’s results,” he said in the statement, “the delegate math has become virtually impossible — and a viable path to the nomination no longer exists.”
Bloomberg is now endorsing Biden in the hopes of coalescing all establishment support around him in the hopes of preventing far-left Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) from obtaining the nomination.
“I’ve always believed that defeating Donald Trump starts with uniting behind the candidate with the best shot to do it,” Bloomberg said. “After yesterday’s vote, it is clear that candidate is my friend and a great American, Joe Biden.”
Sen. Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren (D-MA) may be joining Bloomberg soon and throwing in the towel on her fledgling presidential ambitions. She is doing some soul-searching, perhaps on a vision quest, after her campaign has failed to gain any momentum.
“Elizabeth is talking to her team to assess the path forward,” a campaign aide told The Hill.
Unlike Bloomberg, Warren has failed to win a single primary or caucus up to this point. She was even routed in her home state of Massachusetts. She has billed herself as a progressive alternative to Sanders, despite her extensive establishment ties.
As the field narrows, Biden’s campaign has been resurrected from the dead. He has the biggest endorsements and the delegate advantage moving forward.
“I’m here to report that we are very much alive,” Biden told a cheering crowd of supporters following his many Super Tuesday victories. “This campaign is taking off.”
Biden’s strength comes at the direct expense of Warren and Bloomberg, whose lackluster campaigns are or soon will be a forgotten footnote in the annals of U.S. history.

POLL: 15% of Sanders Supporters Plan to Vote For Donald Trump in November
They prefer Trump to an establishment Democrat.
New polling from ABC suggests that Donald Trump is primed to win over a significant share of Bernie Sanders primary voters in the November general election, suggesting that some of Bernie’s Bros don’t intend to bend the knee to likely establishment Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
The poll reveals that 15% of self-identifying Bernie Sanders supporters already plan on voting for Trump in November. President Trump ultimately ended up winning the votes of 12% of 2016 Sanders supporters, suggesting he’s increased his appeal to the democratic socialist’s supporters.
Some centrist Democrats have expressed their personal distaste of Sanders(and some Gabbard) supporters on account of their perceived unwillingness to vote for the Democratic nominee, forgetting that it’s the obligation of American political candidates to win the votes of citizens who chose to support their opponents in primaries.
While Trump and Sanders are on opposite ends of the American political spectrum, they could be compared in a sense that they’re both considered political populists. Trump’s policy positions on trade, some foreign policy, and American manufacturing are closer to the Sanders’ views than Joe Biden’s reheated neoliberal political program.
Perhaps even more significantly, the poll shows that Biden gauges the lowest ever recorded “enthusiasm level” for a Democratic Presidential nominee. A paltry 24% of likely Biden voters describe themselves as “very enthusiastic” to vote for him in November.
With a voter base that seems lethargic in an unprecedented fashion, it’s possible that Joe Biden could go down as the most “low energy” major Presidential candidate in recent American political history.
The poll’s general election survey reveals a tight contest between Biden and Trump, with the former Vice President leading within the margin of error by 49% to 47%. Trump’s polling has improved significantly in recent weeks in ABC’s surveys, in part because of high public approval of the federal response to the Chinese coronavirus epidemic.
Biden seems to have largely disappeared from the national conversation in the wake of the historical epidemic, only sparsely appearing on public broadcasts in bizarre gaffe-filled livestreams from a converted recreation room in his Delaware home.
