A new poll released by Morning Consult on Sunday brought some good news and bad news for potential Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg, Politico reports.

Bloomberg, who filed for the Alabama primary Friday, but has not yet made a final decision about officially launching a campaign, finished in sixth place in the poll at 4 percent, which is not terrible considering he's a newcomer. He was also shown beating President Trump by six percentage points in a hypothetical general election matchup. But 25 percent of those surveyed also said they view the former New York City mayor and billionaire unfavorably. That was the highest unfavorable rating in the poll.
