Bloomberg Decision Matrix if Sanders Wins Dem Nomination
Bloomberg believes Sanders will lose to Trump. Therefore, once Sanders wins the Dem nomination, it follows that the only possible path to defeating Trump is for Bloomberg to run as an Independent. It’s also the only path to Bloomberg becoming President.
Since Sanders has refused any assistance from Bloomberg in the general election — “it’s a hard no” — it seems Bloomberg’s choices are now, help Sanders regardless, do nothing (since Bloomberg does not want Trump or Sanders to win) or take the Red path, above.
