Bloomberg bypassed the first four primary contest in hopes of winning a huge chunk of delegates awarded on Super Tuesday. He spent $570 million over the course of his 100 days of his campaign on flooding the airwaves around the country with ads, opening hundreds of offices across the country, and hiring more than 2,100 people to his team. In Super Tuesday alone, Bloomberg dropped about a total of $200 million on digital, radio and tv ads. His only victory was in the tiny American Samoa caucus, where he got five delegates.

As of Wednesday, Bloomberg had accumulated 44 pledged delegates, while Biden leads the delegate count with 453. Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) trails behind Biden with 382 pledged delegates, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) after losing her home state of Massachusetts has 50.

Bloomberg Drops Out, Endorses Biden

It is his money and he can do whatever he wants with it. A bunch of people got some cash in their pockets because of his ego and good for them.

But $570 million still comes at  $5.7 million per day or $12.9 million per vote. According to the NYT,  Mr. Trump spent $322 million for his successful campaign to be President.

Truthfully I have no idea what made Bloomberg run. Even the dumbest of campaign managers had to know he had too much baggage to appeal to the Democratic base and his running was a fools’ errand.  I am only left with one thing: His colossal ego was making the decisions and not common sense.

  1. Perhaps he’s decided he’d rather be the wizard of Oz – the man behind the curtain pulling the levers. He’s already shown – and said – he can buy elections at the national as well as state level.

  2. I don’t think it will be the end of Bloomberg ads. They will just be infringer ads instead of presidency ads

  3. I will miss Bloomberg, between his near Biden level gaffes, beyond Bernie authoritarianism, and rich guy in a bubble cluelessness he was incredibly easy to mock, and apparently easy to hate. Bloomberg vs Trump would have been an awesome shitshow compared to Commissar Bernie or geriatric Joe.

  4. so what you’re saying is he paid a bunch of his cronies in the media a sh*t ton of cash for naught. My nose says it was dirty money getting scrubbed clean. Makes about as much sense to me as any other ‘explanation’…

    1. Don’t underestimate the power of that man’s ego. He honestly thought that he was going to be a big winner
