Zogby: Bloomberg Threat Real, Only Democrat Leading Trump.

Several new polls show Mike Bloomberg continuing to build momentum as we run a nationwide campaign to defeat Donald Trump.

Mike beats Trump by two percentage points (45% to 43%) in a head-to-head matchup, according to a Zogby Analytics national poll released Thursday. See graphic below.

Bloomberg, unlike his Democratic rivals, performs well with Independents (Bloomberg leads 39% to 35%), suburban women (Bloomberg leads 42% to 41%), and small city voters (Bloomberg leads 52% to 38%), according to the poll.

Mike also blunts Trump's gains with some younger voters: those aged 25-34 (Bloomberg leads 50% to 33%) and aged 30-49 (Bloomberg leads 46% to 41%). 

In the latest Reuters/Ipsos national poll, released on Thursday, Mike surpassed Elizabeth Warren among registered voters. 

The poll found Bloomberg at 12% support nationwide — two points over Warren, who registered 10%. 

That is up from 5% in a similar poll that ran the first week of December; Bloomberg’s popularity has risen in the poll almost every week since then. Read more here

"This year, it's been announced that each 30-second spot will cost advertisers a record $5.6 million. That's a lot of money for something that plays in the background while everyone's taking a bathroom break."

“A 30-foot-high portion of President Trump’s border wall blew over yesterday and fell into Mexico. Man, that’s how rough things are right now in the U.S. — even Trump’s wall is leaving the country.”
