If Bloomberg drops out soon, who will benefit? [View all]

I'm thinking Biden benefits a lot if Bloomberg folds his tent. I think well over half of Bloomberg voters at this point will turn to Biden in any future primaries. I simply can't see more than 20% of the Bloomberg voter--if event that many going to BS. If Bloomberg had dropped out Sunday--or even Monday--Biden would have crushed any hopse BS had on Super Tuesday. Warren might benefit more than Sanders does when Bloomberg folds--assuming she's still in the race--but not much more than Sanders.

While I still prefer Warren over Biden, I think Biden is candidate, especially if Bloomberg drops out soon.

I do hope Warren's proposed wealth tax gets past--and they name it honor in of Bloomberg.
