Is Bloomberg better or worse than Trump?

Mike Bloomberg's supporters are lining up behind him because they think he has what it takes to beat Trump. Bloomberg has the resources and he's committed to helping Democrats win even if he doesn't get the nomination. He's also taking core issues like climate change and gun safety seriously. Bloomberg's fans argue he is clearly a strong administrator—he's built billion-dollar businesses and a vast personal fortune.

Bloomberg's critics argue he is an oligarch. Like Trump, he has no real political loyalties. When running for New York Mayor, Bloomberg switched his party from Republican to Democrat to run for office. He faces major accusations of racism for his expansion of the stop-and-frisk program. Also like Trump, Bloomberg faces allegations of sexual harassment from many women he has worked with. Bloomberg's critics see him as someone who is cut from the same cloth as Trump. Making him the nominee would be a Faustian bargain—a deal with the devil that Democrats may never recover from. What do you think?

Bloomberg's critics argue he is dangerous. Just because he supports a handful of issues that align with liberal politics does not excuse the fact that he is literally buying the election.

But Bloomberg's supporters argue he is putting his money behind the core issues that matter.

Some are willing to look beyond Bloomberg's past, saying his actions in the present day show a changed man. As one senior advisor to Bloomberg's campaign wrote:
