Bloomberg - Are you a robot?Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren shrugged off surveys showing her gaining support nationally and in some key early primary states, to place second behind front-runner Joe Biden.
“It’s way too early to talk about polls. What are we, eight months away from the first caucuses and primary elections?” the Massachusetts senator told reporters Saturday in Charleston, South Carolina.A national Economist/YouGov poll released on
Wednesday showed Warren in second place among the large Democratic field with 16%, behind former Vice President Biden’s 26% and ahead of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders’s 12%.
remember that old school song "Spin the Wine"....."this really blew my mind". Yeah. Showing my age. But, that's the reaction I had when I read her response. She's right of course. But, it's a refreshing contrast to a president that's so obsessed with his poll numbers that he fires pollsters if he doesn't like them.
Warren started surging in the polls when she was the first candidate to come out and call for the impeachment of Trump. To this day Biden is still on the fence. I always saw Biden getting all up the personal space of Joy Reid yesterday and, quite frankly, he gave me the creeps. I've said it once and I'll say it again. Biden had his chance. If he win the nomination I'll vote for him. But, I still think the Democrats need to nominate someone that moves the party forward - not backwards.
Ok and yeah, wouldn't it be something for a woman that Trump has vilified the way he's has Warren to finally put him in his place? To go toe to toe with Trump on a debate stage. Countering his rude and obnoxious personality with a calm, cool, and collected policy tsunami.
