His pitch will be that both parties are broken and that voters need to reach out beyond traditional party politics to toss him into the Oval Office. He will have an appeal to some voters and many feel that his presence in the race will split the Democrat vote. Progressives point out that Schultz is a male, he’s white, he’s rich, he’s a corporate fat cat and his ancestors may have owned slaves. Thus he’s not desirable to them. Them meaning the Ocasio-Cortez faction of the Party – the wing nuts. Schultz will push the Democrats further left than they may have intended to be: (1) Make all healthcare like the VA; (2) $20/hr minimum wage; (3) forgive all student debt; (4) Eliminate gasoline as a means of vehicular propulsion; (5) Turn the US into Venezuela; (6) Kill all babies.
There are a lot of Democrats who don’t think that those six things are good for America – advantage: Schultz, who can self-fund a campaign (as can Bloomberg).
Schultz running between Poke-a-haunt-us, Beto, Sanders, Hillary, Harris, Spartacus, Biden, Bloomberg, and a dozen more wouldn’t get the coverage his ego demands. And his chances of beating the Democrat party candidate, running left of Karl Marx and Vladimir Lenin, are not bad.
It might even cause Bloomberg (too rich, too white, too Jewish) to run as an independent, further splitting the Democrat vote.
With a fragmented left, the clear winner would be Donald J. Trump, incumbent Republican. (MAGA)
