CBS News asked @MikeBloomberg — who is campaigning in California during the Iowa Caucuses — about his feud with President Trump, and whether people want to see two billionaires fighting on Twitter.

Opinion: Mike Bloomberg won the Iowa caucuses https://t.co/8r24kH2olR

Today we’re in Detroit to rally support in a state we have to win in November. Trump only won Michigan by 10,000 votes. Since then he's done nothing but break promises.
Instead of worrying about Iowa and New Hampshire, we need to focus on where we need to win in 272 days.

Maybe indicative of something, maybe not, but Steyer underperformed his polling in Iowa, getting 1.8% of the first-alignment vote vs. 3.6% in polls. So did Bloomberg (0.1% vs 1.2%). It seems at least plausible that polls for ad-driven candidates won't translate 1:1 into votes.

You know what Michael Bloomberg didn’t do? Spend two months traipsing around diners, drive-ins and dives in Iowa to beg for a handwritten piece of loose leaf paper in a high school gymnasium. Guy’s trying to win in 2020, not carry on norms that the other party shattered already.

Prediction markets on chances of winning the nomination post-Iowa:
Bernie – 35%
Bloomberg – 18%
Biden – 17%
Buttigieg – 13%
Warren – 6%
We can win this thing.

There were ways to adjust the debate rules when black and Latino candidates were being excluded, but that didn't happen. The rules were only adjusted when the billionaire needed to participate. That seems wrong. https://t.co/4QB1QGAo7U

Right now, in Iowa, the Sanders, Buttigieg and, to a lesser extent, Warren campaigns are acting confidently.
The Biden campaign is not.
That may suggest something but it also probably doesn't mean anything real at all. https://t.co/2xzO5nuenz
