(CNN) - New Yorkers overwhelmingly like Mayor Michael Bloomberg, but most don't want him to run for president, according to a new poll.
According to the just released WNBC/Marist poll, 66 percent of New Yorkers say Bloomberg is doing either a good or excellent job running the city. But just as many say Bloomberg should not mount a White House bid - only 25 percent of New Yorkers would like to see him run for president.
If Hillary does not win the primary, then Bloomberg should run. He would be the only one to vote for. Hillary and Bloomberg are the only two who could turn this economy around and change America for the better.
Please Mike PLEASE run for PRESIDENT! I live in NY state and I think he would be a much better president than any of the other candidates, except Mike Huckabee!
Hillary only came to NY to use us as a stepping stone to run for president. Well that isn't working for her.
Michael Bloomberg would be an excellent presidential candidate not to mention we need more options this year for the next president and a 3rd party would be nice too!
In that case, I agree with most New Yorkers.
Obama v. McCain has no room for Bloomberg, though I definitely like the man at face value.
You go,Mr.Mayor...only if Obama is the Democratic nominee. Thanks.
He should be Obama's Vice President. His views are very close to Obama's and those are two people I love.
Bloomberg for President.....................................cool dude.
If Barack is the candidate, Bloomberg can win. He has my vote.
I agree w/ laura....Hillary is bold and beautiful and ready to lead our economy out of the ditch! She's inspired me this year! I feel like i can change the world, and she's given me no illusions about the hard work it's going to take!
I hope she squashes the nonsense thats' coming out of some Democrats this year.
I have been wondering why Obama is doing so well in the polls.could it be his charisma? his judgement. ? Well I have found the answear.
His background. The son of a kenyan immigrant from kenya and a white lady .His father left when he was two years.He has a an asian sister and a step father.With this, he seems to represent mojority of americans.This are the single mothers,black,whites ,asians and immigrants.I wish his stepfather was spanish.With all this in mind He has shown what can be achieved thru unity and hard work.
Truelly with his background He can invite the rest of the world.to peace and unity.
"Change and hope" America needs it and the rest of the world needs it.
To the young He is the dream of millions.humble background. no money.hard work.and an american dream.
Senator Clinton just hurt her bid for the white house. The way she flip flops on issues is very disturbing. Furthermore she keeps speaking on her experience and the experience that Senator Obama lacks. Maybe just maybe we need someone in the white house who isnt tainted with dirty politics
Really? Bloomberg for president? Delusional is the word that comes to mind.
If Obama wins the nominee I hope he enters as well. I do not want to vote for Obama, and am looking for a substitute desperately. I hope Hillary pulls off well tonight in the MSNBC debate.
americans seem to be so adverse to anything beyond the two party system. why should bloomberg not run if he feels he has something he has to say? the two party system has dominated this country's politics so much that few can even seem to entertain other contenders outside the democrats and republican parties. for a county that extolls the praises of diversity, we see so little of it in our politics. what an interesting contradiction.
Hey New York ... Mike Bloomberg may be someone you think highly of, but for the most part the rest of the country would simply yawn if he were to enter the race!
Bloomberg should run for Governor of NY
It is rather shameful to some people in USA just because they are afraid to have a respectable lady ,Hillary Clinton to be a President. I had expected something more from the "God fathers" of Democracy, in otherwords practice what you preach. You guys can learn from the mistakes of the French poeple who voted Nicolas Sarkozy to power instead of a brilliant lady. In the end Sarkozy uses his time to run after young ladies ,expensive holidays and all that he promised and said during the elections is forgotten. Guys wake up and try to be objective,about 80% of the blacks vote for Obama just because his black not because of the issues and the economy and painfully the whites have turned their back to Hillary just because , she is a woman and her husband was once a good president so even if she is the best among the rest some Americans simply won't vote for her and that is very silly ,your poor economy has a bearing to the rest of the World and the only person who can turn things around is Hon. Lady Clinton.
Run! Run! The world loves you!
His views are NOT "very close to Obama's". He is much more moderate.
PLEASE, Havent we been punished enough as voters. Focus on your job Mr. Mayor.
CNN please explore Bill Cunningham's coverage on Obama.
Now that we have Nader to hold their feet to the fire, Bloomberg
would be superfluous. GO RALPHIE !!!
I like Bloomberg but not for President. Now VICE-PRESIDENT is not such a bad idea! Obama-Bloomberg...hmmmmm?
Obma – the Affirmative Action candidate.
