What do YOU think?

Would he get elected again or are NYers too wise to bumberg by now?

My opinion? People may hate his stinking guts and know that he doesn't care about the people but big money (like about a billion dollars thrown around on ads, mailings, favorable media, political endorsements etc) combined with the usual weak minds would give NY a fourth term of Pinhead Bumberg.

If he is 10 years younger, I will probably vote for him again. For now, time to move on. Let some one else be the mayor with new ideas (if there is any).

If Hillary's being voted in as a NY senator hasn't proved that New Yorkers are sheeple, nothing will.

Besides, Bloomberg hasn't gotten around to limiting our intake of caffeine or instructed us on approved bowel habits yet, so I'm guessing he'd be a shoe-in.

I think the public is getting a little tired of him by now.

Agreed. $150m or whatever he spent in 2009 got him only a 53-47 win.

If Bloomberg were running for a fourth term, and we had everyone too scared to run against him (I mean really...if you are too pathetic, insecure, self-defeatist to run against Bloomberg, what makes you think you can run this city!), and we are stuck with another numbskull who is running on the non-platform of "vote for me at least I am not Bloomberg", which is what Bill Thompson did in 2009, Bloomberg could win a fourth term.

Yes, he will. Just like he did before.

Money talks and "other" things.

His money is not what won him a 3rd term, it is the pathetic group of people who did not have any backbone to run against him. I mean did they not realize that one year prior Obama beat the "inevitable" Hillary with all her "power, money and connections"?

Bloomberg did us all a favor by eliminating these losers.
