ANN ALTHOUSE ON MIKE BLOOMBERG, THE DEMOCRATS, AND THE MEDIA. “The DNC changed the qualification rules to help Bloomberg. They got rid of the requirement of a number of donors. But he needs some number of polls putting him over 10%, and the latest info I can find, here, says he’s still one short. It’s funny, because I was just checking for new polls at Real Clear Politics, and there hasn’t been anything new since last Friday and no new national poll since last Wednesday. The most recent national poll surveyed people from 2/9 to 2/11. That seems odd, doesn’t it? Are polls being held back? I remember before the Iowa caucus, the Des Moines Register held back its poll.”
