Yeah, he did, which was an incredibly ingenius and ultimately winning strategy.
So as I write this post, Fernando Ferrer is just hundreths of a percentage of votes from being declared the winner of the NYC Democratic primary for the mayoral race. Anthony Weiner has 29%, and Virginia Fields and Gifford Miller have dropped out of the race. My question to you is: Does any of this matter? Bloomberg's ratings are very high, and the Democrats all seem weak. I am a registered independent (if I were to join a party, it would most likely be the Republican party, because being able to vote in Republican primaries is more important to me than voting in Democratic primaries, plus I generally lean toward classical liberalism politically). However, my parents are both registered Democrats, but haven't voted for a Democrat for the Mayoral race in the last 12 years (not since Dinkins). They didn't vote for any candidates in the primary yesterday because they knew they were going to vote for Bloomberg regardless of who the Democratic opponent would be. This kind of thought seems prevelant among many NYC Democrats. Thoughts? Opinions?
