While former Mayor Michael Bloomberg has yet to officially throw his hat into the ring of the 2020 Presidential race, speculation is rising that he will within days.
Former Democrats have not exactly welcomed him into the fray and some argue Bloomberg should spend his billions some other way.
A new poll from Politico has Bloomberg over President Trump nationally by 6 points.
Forty-three percent of likely voters would back Bloomberg if the election were held today, compared to 37% who would vote for Trump. Twenty-one percent those polled, however, said they don’t know or don’t have an opinion.
The poll comes as Bloomberg considers jumping into the Democratic presidential primary. The billionaire is still not sure if he’ll enter the race, a source told CNBC, but he is troubled by what he sees in the Democratic field.
Bloomberg, however, might struggle to get ahead in the primary. He is currently in sixth place, with just 4% of Democratic primary voters backing him. Bloomberg has the highest unfavorability rating, 25%, of any Democratic candidate among among primary voters.
