Morris said he believes that Bloomberg will remain in the race, even if he sees he can’t win, to try and peel away support from Sanders ahead of the party’s nominating convention later this summer.
“Nobody will be nominated on the first ballot, and it’ll go to a second ballot,” Morris said of a brokered convention. “The problem is that the party establishment doesn’t have a candidate.
“They can’t do Bloomberg because he got killed in the debate,” Morris continued. “Can’t do [Joe] Biden because he’s already lost the front-runner status. [Pete] Buttigieg looks like a high school kid at the Model UN. [Elizabeth] Warren is third, but she’s pretty far to the Left, and they’re not going to want to trust her,” he added.
Morris said he believes that Sanders “will get massacred” by Trump, so Clinton will attempt to ease into the nomination on the second ballot.
