Bloomberg leaves the Republican Party

Read here.

Quote:
Mr. Bloomberg’s decision — the first change in party affiliation by a sitting New York City mayor since 1971, when John V. Lindsay switched from Republican to Democrat — immediately set off intense speculation that he will enter the 2008 presidential race as an independent.

Bloomberg vs Paul would be an interesting battle.

That would be the last nail in McCain's coffin.

Although, McCain is probably cooked right now anyway.

just trying to figure how a 3rd party run
by bloomberg could affect the 2008 election

where one candidate gets all the electoral votes from one state by getting the most votes?


In a Hillary/ Giuliani race
who would he take away more votes from in NY, NJ, MASS, or Florida?

It'd be fun to see a three way race where the third candidate is actually viable.








Wow look at what I just said. You can tell I'm not satisfied with the democratic field at all.

Ron Paul?

If he gets in
it would be a 3 person race.

Bloomberg would not win one state.

He has the potential to change the outcome in a few states.

Think Ralph Nader in 2000.

With more potential, than 2 or 3 states.

Where it would get interesting is if you had: Hillary/Romney/Bloomberg. Then Bloomberg would become Romney's Nader.

If Bloomberg gets in.

He clears the field for the more conservative GOP candidates in the GOP primaries.

Fred Thomas
Mitt Romney are both up.


and
Giuliani and McCain are down.

Not exactly

Bloomberg would need to be more extreem (right) than the nominated candidate.

Independents and moderates are likely Bloomberg voters.

And both Hillary and Obama were counting
on making some good in roads with those groups.

The more I think about this

this is the best news the GOP has had in some time.

Rove could not have planned it better.

It could be that the globalists/neo-cons have put in Bloomberg as a 'front' candidate to take votes away from the true independent candidate, Ron Paul.

Ron Paul, as much attention as he gets in the debates, will not come in any higher than maybe 5th in any of the GOP primaries.

And I doubt if any of the 3rd parties will nominate him.
