NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — While former Mayor Michael Bloomberg considers an independent White House bid, a new poll suggests many Americans have no interest in voting for him.

A new Associated Press-GfK poll found that regardless of ideology, six in 10 Democrats and Republicans rule out Bloomberg in a general election. The total saying they wouldn’t vote for him is the highest level for any candidate in the field.
