Michael Bloomberg tests waters for possible presidential run

timesofisrael

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg commissioned a poll to test how he would perform in the 2016 presidential election against Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

The poll was commissioned by the media CEO last month, The New York Times reported Sunday in an article about a possible split in the Republican Party. It is not the first time the billionaire media executive and erstwhile politician has flirted with a possible run for the presidency, the Times noted.

CNN reported that a source close to the mayor confirmed the poll, but neither CNN nor the Times discussed the poll’s findings.

In August, media mogul Rupert Murdoch called on Bloomberg to throw his hat in the ring for the election.

Bloomberg, who is Jewish, served as mayor of New York City from 2001 to the end of 2013. In 2014, he returned as CEO to Bloomberg L.P., the multibillion-dollar firm he co-founded.
