THE MONEY IS WORRIED

Well, well, Mike Bloomberg suddenly emerges from seclusion to put his name into the first-deadline primary in Alabama.  Then word emerges that Clinton loyalist Eric Holder is dipping a toe in the water.  So long as Good Old Joe was topping the polls by double digits, the money slept easy, but once Joe started to slide and Elizabeth and Bernie hung on or even surged, sensible no-nonsense types began to worry that the party was moving "to far to the left," which is code for "Help!!!  Someone wants to tax our piles of dough."

Meanwhile, desperate Republicans have hit on a strategy to save Trump:  throw Rudy, Mike, and Gordon under the bus.  All of which has created a new on-line betting game, Who Will Flip on Trump First?


Life is not all bad.

Surely Gordon has flipped already! So it has to be between Rudy and Mike. Of course it looks as if that deranged warmonger Bolton is going to turn on Trump. But he was never enough of a loyalist for this to count as flipping.

Nah.

Warren was deemed teh heir to frontrunner, but hasn't exploded into the lead as expected, and Biden has hung on with a ~6 point lead. Warren polls the worst against Trump too.

Steyer has thrown 20 million of his own money into the election to buy a place in the debates - the only people that can do this are worth...300 million maybe?

Bloomberg is 77, it's now or never, and the field looks iffy. Biden's brain is melting before our eyes, Warren polls poorly against Trump and her ideas can't be paid for, she knows this, so she's a liar, but not a natural liar like Clinton was, so she will look weak when questioned. She already does look weak when questioned on middle class taxes going up to pay for health care.

Sanders has only shown his consistent 17% in polling, die hard Bernie Bros from last election, true believers who won't switch their allegiance because of their cult-like belief that has had 4 years to ingrain itself in them, and the belief that they can right the wrong of the nomination being stolen from Bernie last time around.

So, I don't see it. Buttigieg seems likely to win Iowa....

Honestly at this point I have to imagine a brokered convention, which would go to Biden as the one who would probably still be polling against Trump the best.
