    The Reuters poll still shows the Democrats ahead, but by slimmer margins if Bloomberg enters the mix. But note this same poll underestimates Trump's support, so take the trend more seriously than the actual head-to-head results.

    ---------------------------
    The Reuters polls have consistently undercounted Trump's support compared to other polling outfits. But the poll makes sense. Bloomberg is a social liberal but he is also a philosophical liberal on many issues, including support for government interference in the personal lives of citizens. He would draw more moderate Democrats and even some liberals away from Hillary Clinton. It's hard to imagine too many current Trump supporters who would be enamored of the former NY city mayor.
    -----------
    If former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg carries through and runs for president as an independent, a Reuters poll shows that his candidacy would hurt the Democrats and give a boost to Donald Trump.

    In a matchup between Trump and Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton, adding Bloomberg's name to the ballot would trim Clinton's lead over Trump to six percentage points from 10, according to the poll conducted from Jan. 23 to Jan. 27.

    In a Trump versus Democratic hopeful Bernie Sanders matchup, adding Bloomberg would erode Sanders' lead over Trump to seven points from 12, the poll results showed.

    I think most women democrats are embarrassed by Hillary, and especially the way she enabled Bill to sexually abuse and exploit so many women.

    Given a valid "pro-choice" liberal enthusiast like Bloomberg, her numbers would certainly take a hit. I'd expect a similar hit among LGBT democrats....given the still sore memories of Bill signing DADT and DOMA, and her late and tepid support of marriage equality, etc.

    She did much more than enabling Bill. Many reports that she actively worked to discredit and damage the reputation of women victimized by Bill.

    From the good old NY Times:

    -------------
    ’90s Scandals Threaten to Erode Hillary Clinton’s Strength With Women

    Mr. Trump’s attacks make Mrs. Clinton look less like “a strong, self-actualized feminist leader who women can proudly get behind,” Ms. Weiner added, and more “like a craven opportunist, and an apologist for a predator.”

    The biggest turn off, especially for women, is having Bill Clinton the sexual predator back in the White House.

    Bill Clinton with full access to interns, is like hiring a known child molester for a camp counselor.
