I know, I know, I KNOW. We just finished running the 2016 gauntlet. We’re battered and bruised and bloodied (figuratively speaking) and NOBODY in their right mind wants to even THINK about 2020. I hear you 100%! I don’t want to think about another presidential election for a very, very, very, VERY long time.
With that being said – I still found this somewhat amusing.
According to this, a poll conducted by Morning Consult and Politico found that if Elizabeth Warren was the Democrat nominee for the 2020 election – even with all of that #ShePersisted feminist BS – she would still lose to Donald Trump –
Trump bests Warren 42 percent to 36 percent, with 22 percent undecided. Warren has a combined 37 percent favorable rating to a combined 30 percent unfavorable rating; 20 percent view her very favorably, and 20 percent view her very unfavorably. Amazingly, 18 percent of those polled have heard of her but have no opinion, while 16 percent don’t know who she is.
This is just one poll, it’s not focused on swing states (where the contest would, in actuality be fought), and it does show plenty of room for Warren to improve her standing.
And it gets even worse for Warren. In her home state of Massachusetts, voters there aren’t even sure if she deserves to be re-elected to the Senate –
It also doesn’t seem to be doing much for her thus far back in Massachusetts. As a reminder, recent WBUR polling shows that only 44 percent of voters there think she deserves re-election, whereas 46 percent think someone else should get to have a go. In September, University of Massachusetts polling showed her barely capable of beating former Gov. Bill Weld and Massachusetts Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito.
Soooo… I guess Fauxcahontas’s bid to be the new Queen of the Democrat Party (now that Hillary Clinton’s been unceremoniously retired) isn’t going so hot for her.
Keep in mind, this is still insanely early to be talking about things like re-election and presidential bids. But it’s heartening to a degree.
