Contrary to what 2020 Democrat Elizabeth Warren would have her supporters believe, her campaign has been stagnating for quite some time. While the Massachusetts senator was once a seemingly-viable contender, the tides have certainly shifted.
Warren’s lies about Medicare-for-All, fundraising purity tests, and struggles with generating donations haven’t served her well. As she’s taken a nosedive, other candidates such as Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders have seen some boosts. While Buttigieg recently snagged an endorsement from Hollywood actor Kevin Costner, Sanders is being looked at more seriously by higher-ups within the Democrat Party.
The present struggles of Warren’s candidacy come with the approach of the Iowa caucuses. According to Washington Examiner, the 2020 Democrat is failing to deal with the “expectations game” in Iowa and New Hampshire. It turns out that Warren’s name recognition engenders more pressure on her to perform well in these states, especially in the eyes of Democrat voters and the DNC.
A Closer Analysis of Warren’s Flopping Presidential Run
The stakes of the Iowa caucus are very high. Not only does the senator’s name recognition raise the bar for her, but a poor performance in Iowa really carries the power to significantly wound a candidate’s campaign. In a nutshell, Warren has to prove to Democrat voters that she has what it takes to caucus, campaign, and energize the left-wing.
As Warren’s poll numbers and donations continue to go further and further down the toilet, she’s become increasingly more desperate. This has caused the senator to distance herself from fierce advocacy of Medicare-for-All and ramp up her attacks on candidates who pose the greatest threat to her, such as Pete Buttigieg, Bernie Sanders, and Joe Biden.
The 2020 Democrat has also boosted her attempts to appear more “woke” and relatable. From interviews with Elle magazine to Twitter posts about the evils of “big banks,” Warren is pulling out all the stops to try and save what’s left of a doomed campaign.
Why Warren Won’t Make It
There is no scenario where Elizabeth Warren wins the 2020 presidential election. Even if she manages to con the Democrats into giving her the nomination, she will not defeat President Trump in a general election.
Warren is so far out there and radical that she doesn’t stand a chance of beating the president. No matter how well or how poorly Warren manages to rally the left-wing base, she won’t appeal to moderate Democrats, Independents, and certainly not conservatives or Republicans. These groups are necessary for winning a general presidential election and Warren doesn’t have what it takes.
