Since entering the 2020 presidential election, Mike Bloomberg has run his campaign in a very different manner than his opponents.
Unlike other running Democrats, Bloomberg announced his candidacy months after the race had begun and following several primary debates. To date, the billionaire businessman turned presidential candidate has never once set foot on a primary debate stage; however, he did recently get the DNC to scrap the individual donor requirements, thus paving the way for the self-funded candidate to qualify for debates with the right numbers in the poll.
Bloomberg has consistently taken heat for the manner he’s chosen to run his campaign, along with his troubling, anti-gun positions. However, new updates from Breitbart News confirm that the 2020 Democrat is planning to spend millions more on fresh ads which are untrue and designed to bolster his chance of winning the Democrat Party’s nomination.
Throwing Money at an Election
Bloomberg’s campaign strategy seems to ultimately be to buy his way into winning his party’s nomination. Thus far, he’s spent hundreds of millions of dollars of his own money on ads which are duplicitous and ridiculous. Bloomberg also doesn’t seem particularly interested in connecting with voters, although he’s arrogant enough to believe that he has what it takes to defeat President Trump in this year’s general election.
Sabrina Singh, a spokeswoman for Bloomberg, explained yesterday that the 2020 Democrat is ” doubling down on the national campaign strategy” he’s employed since the inception of his candidacy. Singh furthermore revealed that Bloomberg believes the supposedly “unsettled” field of leftist contenders makes him the sole candidate with the ability to take on Trump.
Thus far, Bloomberg is estimated to have expended a whopping $300 million dollars on ads. President Trump, on multiple occasions, censured Bloomberg’s ads, calling them phony and untrue. Moreover, Trump’s criticism of the billionaire businessman involves slamming his terrible stance on guns and even poking fun at Bloomberg’s height.
The Compulsion to Overcompensate
When observing Bloomberg’s candidacy to become president, his compulsion to overcompensate is readily apparent.
See, the latest 2020 Democrat to enter the race knows that while Americans have had a chance to see other contenders debate one another, the same cannot be said for him. In order to offset the inherent imbalance this creates, Bloomberg has decided that throwing now hundreds of millions of bucks towards digital, TV, and radio ads will help him.
What Bloomberg fails to realize in this 2020 election is that money will only take him so far. He can spend every last cent he has on bogus ads that spread lies and misinformation. What Bloomberg can’t do, however, is purchase a connection with voters or buy truly energized and passionate support. In this case, the 2020 Democrat can only do so much with his money.
