Michael Bloomberg Warns Democrats They’re Headed for a ‘Wipeout’ in November

Michael Bloomberg Warns Democrats They’re Headed for a ‘Wipeout’ in November

“I am deeply concerned that, absent an immediate course correction, the party is headed for a wipeout in November, up and down the ballot.”

Former Republican, former New York City mayor and former 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg has joined the chorus of people warning Democrats that they’re in for a drubbing in the 2022 midterms.

Bloomberg is urging the party to change course, but isn’t it already too late?

It sounds like the school board upset in San Francisco was a wake-up call for him.

He writes at his namesake, Bloomberg News:

San Francisco Shows Democrats Have a Seismic Challenge Ahead

The political earthquake that just occurred in San Francisco should be a dire warning to the national Democratic Party, because the same fault line stretches across the country and the tremors are only increasing.

In 2018 and 2020, I strongly supported efforts to win back control of Congress and the White House, because never in my lifetime have protection of the Constitution and the preservation of democracy been so threatened by domestic politics. I continue to believe that a healthy and vibrant Democratic Party remains essential to beating back the Republican Party’s dangerous turn toward authoritarianism and its tolerance for election subversion. But I am deeply concerned that, absent an immediate course correction, the party is headed for a wipeout in November, up and down the ballot.

Three months after Republicans scored major election upsets in Virginia and New Jersey, largely because of the frustration parents felt with Democratic officials who catered to teachers’ unions and culture warriors at the expense of children, voters in San Francisco recalled three school board members by margins of nearly three to one. Coming from America’s most liberal city, those results should translate into a 7 to 8 on the Richter scale, because the three main factors that drove the recall are not unique to the Bay Area.

New polling from Emerson seems to reflect Bloomberg’s concern. The top priority of voters is now inflation and independent voters are more in line with Republicans than Democrats:

February 2022 National Poll: Inflation Tops Nation’s Concerns, Perception of Covid’s Public Health Threat Drops

A new Emerson College national poll shows President Biden’s job approval underwater: 42% approve of the job he is doing as president while 50% disapprove; 8% are unsure. This is a slight increase in approval from November 2021, when 41% approved of Biden’s job performance and 50% disapproved…

Hispanic voters are most critical of Biden’s job performance: only 35% approve while 56% disapprove. White voters are more favorable of Biden’s job performance: 41% approve and 51% disapprove. Black voters are the most favorable of Biden’s job performance: 66% approve while 28% disapprove.

Within the Democratic party, 73% approve of the job Biden is doing as president while 19% disapprove. Among Republicans, the majority (71%) disapprove while 22% approve. Independents also generally disapprove of Biden’s job, at 27% approve and 63% disapprove.

Inflation is seen as the most important issue facing the country among a plurality (24%) of voters. Covid-19 follows with 20%, closely followed by healthcare with 16%, and immigration with 11%.

Even if Democrats wanted to change course, as Bloomberg suggests, it’s not clear how they would navigate such a move. Their base is more aligned with the far left than the center.

No, no. You guys keep pushing your agenda. CRT in all schools, masks mandated or go to jail, only a third booster is considered fully vaccinated and carry your ID papers or else.

    Mr. georgfelis, I agree w/you. The four items you listed are only the beginning of the lib’s downfall. From foreign policy stupidity, to choking off oil production, to interest rate escalation (the Fed should have started taking remedial action last summer), to panic-buying in the housing market as folks flee the tax and crime sinkholes of democrat run cesspools, to empty shelves, to the continued race-baiting, to….etc., etc., etc., the dem’s rush to make the movie ‘Idiocracy’ a documentary is going to explode in their totalitarian faces. The schadenfreude and popcorn sales promise to be DELICIOUS!

Like with toilet paper, Mike?

In other words, the Democrats have two choices:

A) Dump their most cherished beliefs and make a huge course correction before November.

B) Unleash BLM/Antifa this summer and cheat even harder in November

    C) Conduct the Midterm Election under Martial Law so states are locked down and federal troops are harvesting ballots of only Democrats. A limited nuclear exchange with Russia will serve Biden’s needs very well here. Hunter Biden can be his emissary to Putin to have a prior agreement not to use too many nukes or hit wrong targets.

Lul the idiot midget that was literally paying people who admitted using their time on the clock to campaign for his opponents is trying to tell Democrats how to campaign.

And stop calling him a Republican. He was NEVER a Republican. He was a lifelong Democrat who switched and RAN as a Republican only because he was going to lose badly in the Democrat primary, but made the correct calculation that he could win the Republican primary and coast into office on Guliani’s coattails (and then promptly fuck everything up).

Bloomberg is America’s born loser. He’s a guy who could watch a tornado approaching, and yet not get the message that he ought to head to his storm cellar.

If he tells you he sees armageddon coming, it’s already too late.

Please people – don’t be cocky! Donate, volunteer, debate as if it hanging by a thread… God willing, we’ll celebrate in November 🙂

Here in Duval county, Florida, a few days ago, leftist Tracye Polson was running for city council after the ultra long term of a reasonable Democrat died, and days before the election, was actually beating the Republican Conservative running against her. Our fabulous Governor, Rick DeSantis, did a robo call the night before the election and viola, Nick Holland pulled it off. Polson was heavily backed, with mucho bucks from out of state, and ran on “making the streets of Jacksonville safer” but favored defunding police and reducing officers on the street. Forked tongues wagged furiously saying that the Republicans ran a “dirty campaign” but there were enough sane voters to leave Polson in the dust. Of course after she lost she said her campaign was full of “love” when we all know what she is really full of!

Never underestimate the idiocy of far too many voters, and never ever underestimate how dirty the libtards will go to win any election.

“…never ever underestimate how dirty the libtards will go to win any election”

I don’t think they can cheat this time around…too obvious.

    I hope you’re right scooter, but they got away with MASSIVE cheating in 2020, so why would they hesitate to go ever farther next time to advance their commie agenda?

    There are many heavily lib areas in Duval county, but most of it is pure red. It was a local election so many didn’t pay attention to it, but when DeSantis called, many went to the voting booths to avoid Polson’s reign. This had been a democrat position for multiple decades too.

    Never underestimate how much they can cheat or to what lengths they will go to. Remember, the Democratic Party’s pooh-bas, billionaire donors, and Media Overlords are motivated by fear. Real mortal fear and panic of the personal revenge that Trump will exact upon them in a second term. They must hold power in the Midterm to prevent a second Trump term – especially in the Senate. They will do anything at all, even nuclear war, to prevent a second Trump term. Right now all their other plans for preventing a 2nd Trump term are falling apart. This means they are desperate cornered rats – and there is nothing more dangerous than a cornered rat.

      This is . . . erm, something else. It’s like I’m reading random sentences and paragraphs from random articles that are all lumped together as some sort of . . . what? Who even knows because this is one big pile of randomness with no relation at all to reality.

      No one, and I mean no one is afraid of Trump. All anyone has to do is proclaim that Trump’s the smartest, bestest, most fabulous whatever, and Trump rolls over, wriggling happily, eager for a good belly rub. He’s pathetic in this sense because everyone laughs at him. Want to get on Trump’s good side? Just praise him. Doesn’t matter what you’ve done, what you will do, or how many millions you nuke, he’ll love you.

      And this is fact, he did it over and over, and is still doing it now. It’s disgusting to hear Trump praise Biden, Kim Jong-un, Putin because they stoked his tickle spot (that one right behind his left ear).

      If you are counting on Trump to do anything but roll over and wriggle with glee for our nation’s enemies, you are not paying attention.

        That’s factually false on every level but I legitimately understand why many people hold this opinion because the media saturates then with this false premise. ( a form of Black Propaganda designed to alter a persons perceptions of another’s actions to further an agenda)

        I not only read the book, I have had 2 opportunities in my career to actually work on 2 Trump projects and have dealt with him directly as a PM over portions. I have seen the “non public” business side without all the theatrics.

        Typically, Trump does a detailed dive into the details before he speaks so he has as much of the “facts” as he can get prior to discussing/negotiating so he can best negotiate from a position of “power” but also to gauge the character/credibility/knowledge of those on the other side. He then weaponizes this as appropriate.

        As far as “joviality”, He has been one of the old school “I’ll trust you until I have reason not to” types. (I was impressed with my dealings in Dubai, I saw this side ) I strongly” believe this is part of the reason he got “blindsided” by the swamp at first and I would bet a paycheck this has been corrected now.

        Don’t be fooled by him being “nice” and complimenting”- its not an act in the sense of deception but he likes to ease things and make people comfortable during negotiations and dealings. He has plans within plans and almost always long term focused.

        He told us at a dinner once that when he took heavy losses back in the day, he realized that he set himself up for some of the bad decisions and subsequent failures because he didn’t look far or wide enough and trusted people too readily and he forced himself to do differently now.

        Not knowing any details, I personally think he “believed” some of the GOP hype ( and Ryan, Turtles, Grahams and others) thus setting himself up to be screwed. ( which he was in many ways). I do not believe he will make that mistake again.

        I have personally seen that when things go bad, his first move is just to dump and move on (he really is a master of “cutting losses” and not spending good money/effort after bad and “revenge is not a “profitable” business venture). That said, he does have a temper and will deal more “forcefully” when option 1 fails.

        My personal observation since his “emergence” after the steal somewhere around April last year, I have noticed subtle changes in his demeanor, word selection and “look”.

        I cannot prove this obviously nor am I intending to sell or convince anyone but based on what I experienced and saw- I believe Trump 2.0 means business this time ( not in the jovial way) and has a “list” he is going to “work through” ( read between the lines on that). I see that “thousand yard stare” when he speaks now.

        We also need to remember, he has a different view, volume and command of information that none here have so there “could” be a reason(s) he does some things certain ways in addition to the routine negotiating “coy” skills everyone employs.

        All that said, He is not a “god” nor does he have some secret diving method and he makes mistakes like the rest of us humans. We cannot assign him a standard of “all knowing perfection” that nobody can meet.

Well the Republicans better present their plan soon because “We are not Democrats” is not going to fly in November. McConnell’s Gang of 19 is already out there circling their wagons to protect the Uniparty agenda:

https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2022/02/23/mitt-romney-blames-shortsightedness-america-first-putin-invasion-ukraine/

And McConnell has already declared that he plans to lead the Senate back into the normal bipartanship “reach across the aisle” kabuki theater. That would be the end of all hope. Could we please start covering what is really going on? The return of the neocons would be just as big a disaster as what is currently going on. Part of the same disaster.

    Don’t count on seeing anything resembling “plan” ( as I think most here would want to see).

    Its not going to happen.

    Call them the uniparty, rino, globalists or just plain money hungry sellouts (I suspect we have some of all of them), many of these have either

    A shared agenda with the left (Marriage of convenience)
    Fully support the left ( a Manchurian plant who never was a Republican in the first place)
    Just a person with a “for sale” sign.

    What a large majority don’t have is a care or concern for “we the people”.

    The GOP in its current state doesn’t want to “do” anything- read Bischoff’s book “Controversy creates cash”. It lays is all out in Pro Wrestling and that’s what we have here.

    The GOP wants the “low risk” money by always being the “under dog” pretending to be the face who always “wins” the match but never the title because the heel “cheated” right in front of the referee. They aren’t after the title- they want the money from the eternal rematch ticket sales.

    How many times did the RINO’s send Obama the bill to end O care for his signature?

    How many times did they send the same bill to Trump?

    How many times did the RINO’s usurp Trumps MAGA agenda?

    How many criminals did Gowdy and Graham “bring to justice”?

    To top it all off, give the devil his due for a moment. Look at what the left has done with a numerically slim majority then contrast that with the same look at what the RINO’s FAILED to do with even greater majorities. One would have to be deliberately refusing to look at the facts in evidence to not see it clearly.

    We need to focus on cleaning house on the GOP side- the left will eventually destroy themselves, all we need to do is not interrupt them.

I thought we were done with Bloomberg when the farmers put a dunce cap on him and sent him to the corner in 2020.
