Bloomberg Points Out Who The Winner Of The Vegas Debate Really Was, And It's Not Warren
The Dem presidential candidates tore into each other during the Las Vegas debate and it appears Warren came out on top, while Billionaire Bloomberg was the overall loser. For all of that money, he failed to adequately prepare. Dems and the MSM agreed it was a poor showing on Bloomberg's part, but Bloomberg had a different take on the debate results. He claims Warren was not the winner, Trump was.
"Look, the real winner of the debate last night was Donald Trump," the former New York City mayor told a room full of supporters in Salt Lake City, Utah. "Because I worry that we may be on the way to nominating someone who cannot win in November."
Bloomberg added, "If we choose a candidate who appeals to a small base like Sen. [Bernie] Sanders, it will be a fatal error."
In his remarks, Bloomberg also emphasized that Sanders cannot appeal to moderate Republicans and independent voters.
"We need Democrats and independents and Republicans to win," he said. "And that was the coalition that propelled Democrats to success in the midterms and it is the coalition that we need to win in November."
And the polls seem to be mixed when it comes to whether Sanders could actually win.
"It is true the Sanders was leading in the poll, conducted by the Wall Street Journal and NBC -- but only among Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents when asked who they supported for the Democratic nomination. He had 27% support compared to Mike Bloomberg, Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, each with 14% support. And in a hypothetical matchup, he was narrowly ahead of President Donald Trump.
