New Yorkers for Bloomberg, against White House bid

(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.

    How would Bloomberg do in foreign policy – especially in the Middle East where having a jewish American president would more than ever set the world on fire?

    He's a great mayor but president? NO.

    Mr. New-York Mayor we don't want confusions here. What is making you think of standing for presidency? You have got money and you better keep your money.

    Speak for yourself LeftNut (I can't help laughing when I see your name). I find it amazing how lefties like you rail against the so-called wealthy Republicans when your party is filled with rich white guys like Bloomberg, Kerry, Edwards, and the like. In any case, Bloomberg would get demolished in the presidential race, which I would love to see for myself!!
