President Donald Trump is winning the race for reelection in 2020, and Michael Bloomberg’s team is worried about that. Kevin Sheekey, Bloomberg’s campaign manager:
What we’re focusing on is defeating Trump. If you look at the polls, and people can’t focus on this [enough], the general election is in six states, that’s it. It’s in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, and Arizona. That’s the whole general election[.]
And Bloomberg himself:
I’m running for president to defeat Donald Trump and rebuild America[.]
There’s a hint there. Bloomberg and his team is focused on defeating a man while Trump’s team is focused on policies, policy successes, and a strong economy—an American that’s already well into the rebuilding.
It’s policy, not personality, that average Americans are concerned with; it’s results and concrete plans, not who disdains whom.
