Democrats Are United in Rejecting Senator Warren [OPINION]
The senior senator from Massachusetts has proven to be a flop outside of her home state. Liz Warren has been running for president for years and she has failed.
I think Senator Warren is more knowledgable about public policy than Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. But she isn't as good of a politician as her leftwing colleague and current competitor. Bernie is the real deal and his followers appreciate it.
We were assured that Sen. Warren had a great "ground game," with grassroots volunteers and paid organizers in the precincts of Iowa. She was crushed in Iowa and all of her time and money resulted in zero delegates.
The state of New Hampshire was going to be good for Liz and Bernie because they are neighbors. Bernie did well and Liz did not. She left New Hampshire with zero delegates.
The first state with a decent amount of Latino and black voters, Nevada, also rejected Sen. Warren in its caucuses.
Warren can't win in the places she was able to introduce herself like Nevada and Iowa and she can't win in a place that knows her well like New Hampshire. She can't win with white people or non-white people. And all of the people she can't win over are in the Democratic Party.
The final rejection of Sen. Warren may come in her adopted home state of Massachusetts on Super Tuesday. Will the Democrats who elected Warren to the U.S. Senate stick with her or will they reject her?
What becomes of Sen. Warren after Super Tuesday is up to her. She isn't the first U.S. Senator to fail at a run for the presidency. She has important responsibilities in Congress and Massachusetts needs two fulltime senators.
