Even though she is still in third place in the Real Clear Politics polling averages?
It IS clear that Warren is encroaching on Bernie Sanders campaign support….
While Sanders comes across as bit gruff and angry …..
Warren has been pushing her anti -big business policies , which mirror Sanders and making nice with Sanders in public….
The making nice part seems to be getting her more Sanders drop-outs…
But with both Progressives n the race for the nomination?
Joe Biden keeps his 2-1 lead over the field….
Warren’s aides declined to discuss their endorsement strategy, but several people close to the campaign said she is eager to use local networks to get her message in front of voters, many of whom are not as familiar with her as with Sanders.
But her success with former Sanders devotees also suggests that some liberal activists now see Warren as a better bet than Sanders. And Warren has been carefully wooing Sanders’s key endorsers, often calling them personally.
This approach has helped recruit people like Abramson, who hosted a house party at his Bow, N.H., home four years ago for Sanders. Last week he invited friends and neighbors, along with people contacted by the Warren campaign, to throw his support behind the Massachusetts senator.
“I respect and admire Sanders — I just don’t feel like it’s his time,” Abramson said as he watched supporters line up in his lush backyard to take photos with Warren, adding that “2020 is not 2016. Because it’s a different time we need a different person.”
Warren’s staff is not overtly drawing attention to the fact many of her endorsements are officials who used to back Sanders. They’re not listed as former Sanders supporters on news releases, and they typically don’t mention Sanders when they announce their support for Warren.
But some close to Sanders have noticed the switches and fear that Sanders is not doing enough to court the on-the-ground support that allowed him to essentially fight Clinton to a draw in Iowa in 2016 and drub her in New Hampshire.
The polling average compiled by the RealClearPolitics website has the two candidates statistically tied in Iowa and gives Warren as slight edge in New Hampshire, though both trail former vice president Joe Biden. In June Warren bested Sanders in a strawpoll of about 250 New Hampshire liberal activists, gaining support from 35 percent while Sanders was backed by 24 percent.
Several of the Sanders-to-Warren switchers said they felt that the Massachusetts senator does a better job of articulating the issues that Sanders put forward last time….
Senator Warren IS a Democrat…Senator Sanders is NOT….
Warren HAS become more a media flavour than Sanders recently….
