Bloomberg for President? Yes, we're still two years off and yes he has repeatedly denied that he has any interest in running, and yet still the constant whispers of a Mike Bloomberg presidential run continue. But maybe they shouldn't? In the latest fuel to the fire Public Policy Polling has released a new poll that shows only 19% of Americans expressing a favorable opinion for the tiny mayor from Massachusetts.
Further, in a hypothetical match-up against Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, Bloomberg pulled in a small 11% (Obama got 44% and Romney got 38%). Of course, Bloomberg has billions he could throw at his unpopularity problem. But his cash has already shown diminishing returns here in local elections and vast spending didn't exactly work for Meg Whitman in California, now did it?
