Iowa couldn't have gone better for Bloomberg and Bernie.

Turnout was expected to be 250k and maybe even 300k since weather was perfect.
Per the Iowa Dem Party the turnout was <200k and more around 175k.

The fact Sanders won with low turnout is a major boost for him. The young voters which are his biggest pot didn't show up as expected.

Democracy Now! is reporting that some in the DNC are arguing the party needs to reverse their rule change on Super Delegates in case Bernie wins a few more primaries. If it goes to a second vote at the convention, Bernie is dead.

Here is Politico writing about it also.

They absolutely should. He doesnt represent the bulk of the Democratic party. Many of his supporters come from outside the party

Did you even read your own article? A SMALL group of members. All but certain not to move past the initial conversation. So in your opinion a couple of whiners are now the DNC.

If Bernie has the path to the nomination going into the convention and the DNC stops it, Trump will win.

The fact MSNBC is arguing that Bloomberg isn't a oligarch is awesome. It tells a lot where things are headed.

HTF have results not been pushed out yet?

CNN / Cuomo was supposedly saying (justifiably outraged by) the head of the DNC in Iowa saying he had a doctor's appointment this morning and they'd be after that. :D

They will supposedly tell the campaigns the results at 4pm tonight.

edit: They are saying not ALL results will be released. Only stating something over 50% of the results supposedly.

Biker, you better get off the Biden bandwagon and get on the Bloomberg rocket.


Bloomberg to double spending on television advertising

DETROIT — In the wake of an Iowa caucus debacle that has so far produced no winner, former New York mayor Mike Bloomberg authorized his advisers Tuesday morning to double television spending for his own presidential campaign, as his advisers have become more bullish on his odds of success.

The increase, from 1,200 gross ratings points in all targeted markets to 2,400 gross ratings points, represents a massive escalation of what is already the most costly campaign for the Democratic nomination in U.S. history.

Bloomberg’s presidential strategy is dependent on a chaotic result in the first four Democratic nominating states, where he is not competing, a result Bloomberg advisers believe they achieved in Iowa on Monday. Technical problems have so far prevented the state from declaring a winner, and former vice president Joe Biden, the polling leader, is unlikely to win first place, according to data tracked by multiple campaigns.

The Iowa Democratic Party plans to announce the results of the caucuses at 5 p.m. on Tuesday.

“This is the best-case scenario,” Bloomberg senior adviser Howard Wolfson said of the confusing Iowa caucuses results. “After a year of running, the field is as unsettled as ever. No one has made the sale or even come close to it. Meanwhile, we are taking the fight to Trump every day.”

Since entering the race in November, Bloomberg has spent more than $300 million on television and digital advertising, according to Ad Analytics, an ad tracking firm.

Yeah, I read that he's already lent 200 million to his own campaign. I'll take a Bloomberg presidency too

I’ll bet Cankles is in regret mode now. She’d have it locked up by now. The media would be spinning Stapes-style now, and hard, diminishing the importance of Iowa.

If true:




At 60% of the count Biden came in 5th on the first vote! He only came in 4th on the second round of votes.

Yeah, I could live with that.

He does have some wacked-out ideas regarding policing and nanny-statism tendencies.

NY area, he's known as Mayor Small Soda.

https://www.cagw.org/thewastewatcher/gu ... rd-swallow
Mayor Bloomberg’s proposal is a slippery slope toward the total policing of food and lifestyle choices that individuals have the right to make for themselves. He has already banned trans fats from restaurants, smoking from parks, and placed graphic ads targeting junk food and tobacco in public transit.
Comedy Central’s Daily Show with Jon Stewart even took the time to bash the mayor’s latest proposal, claiming it “combines draconian government overreach people love with the probable lack of results they expect.”
