22. He would position himself as the most centered candidate characterizing the others as extremists.

That would probably cause a convergence of all three at the center-right - CRASH!, which would further alienate and depress the votes of the Left and the Right, to Bloomberg's advantage.

Bloomberg could well win under that scenario if the Democratic candidate doesn't remain resolutely Progressive, holding onto the base and the 10-15% of the Obama vote who were the alienated voters who turned out in '08 (and again largely in '12) for him.
