The New York Times is reporting that Bloomberg is taking steps to formally enter the Democratic Primary. Bloomberg has flirted with running for president in the past but has never committed to a full run. However, with the current set of Democratic candidates, Bloomberg sees himself as the person to defeat President Trump in the 2020 election. 

Here's how the New York Times sees Bloomberg's chances against the current set of candidates.

Should Mr. Bloomberg proceed with a campaign, it could cause a seismic disruption in the Democratic race. With his immense personal wealth, centrist views and close ties to the political establishment, he would present a grave and instantaneous threat to former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who has been struggling to raise money and assemble a ideologically moderate coalition.
Mr. Bloomberg, 77, initially bowed out of the 2020 race because of Mr. Biden’s apparent strength, but he has since grown skeptical that Mr. Biden is on track to win the Democratic nomination and he does not see the two leading liberals in the race, Senators Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, as strong candidates for the general election.

Some pundits think Bloomberg's run won't change anything.

A lot of billionaires have tried to run for president and have seen their campaigns end in flames. There just isn't the appetite for another billionaire to run in this election cycle.

At another level, Democratic voters actually really like their options right now. There's no need for more candidates.
