Bloomberg Conducting National Polls

Michael Bloomberg is conducting polls in all 50 states, the most concrete sign of his interest in running for president, reports the AP.

“They want a hard-headed sense of their chances,” said Doug Schoen, who spearheaded Bloomberg’s voter database efforts, known as microtargeting, for his two mayoral campaigns.

In November, Schoen told an audience at Baruch College, “Let me just say at the outset I don’t think he is going to run.”
