In an interview with radio talk show host John Catsimatidis, a pollster for Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, Doug Schoen said that the billionaire’s campaign will center around the issues of climate change, guns, education and income inequality.
“He’s focused on climate, given his role as the Special Representative of the [UN] Secretary General on Climate,” pollster Doug Schoen told Catsimatidis.
“Guns, certainly, Schoen continued. “He has had great success passing anti-gun violence legislation in the state legislatures. He helped run a medical school and run Johns Hopkins… And ultimately he needs to tell the story of how he’s created thousands of jobs, and what we need to do as a country to reduce income inequality.”
Shoen also elaborated on Bloomberg’s campaign strategy.
“[Bloomberg] anticipates both doing voter registration and also running a separate track of anti-Trump ads … Americans should expect to see ads touting Mike Bloomberg and also attacking Donald Trump,” he said.
The former New York mayor headlines earlier in the week when he announced that he would privately fund his campaign, a move that automatically disqualifies him from the primary debates. Bloomberg has also said that he will only focus on Super Tuesday states and will not focus on early states like Iowa and New Hampshire.
Bloomberg’s net worth is over $50 million.
