Here we go!….
Elizabeth Warren is flavour of the week these days…..
She has steadily risen in the polling to eclipse Bernie Sanders in the Democratic nomination race…
Her rise has begun to worry some….
Warren , besides the women thing, comes at the nomination from the left and worry many that Donald Trump would do to her what he did to Hillary Clinton….
Gaffs and all….STILL leads the race…..
The media seems to have it’s horse race….
Even if Warren is behind Biden 2-1 after you look at little states of Iowa and New Hampshire….
And in the polling of Warren or Biden vs Trump?
She ‘s ahead of Trump by 2% points….
Biden leads Trump by 8% points….
Most Democrats just want the best choice to win…
They really do not care about gaffes or age questions….
And then there is this….
Donald Trump has been beating on Warren’s gaffs already.…
Many moderate Democrats see the field’s current front-runner, Joseph R. Biden Jr., the 76-year-old former vice president, as a safer option than Ms. Warren and other candidates. But Mr. Biden’s lead in the polls is partly based on strong name recognition, and his recent gaffes and middling debate performances have raised questions about whether he has the agility to defeat Mr. Trump.
Many voters interviewed are now wrestling with whether to elevate a candidate who captures their imaginations, and progressive ambitions, or to rally more cautiously behind a Democrat who they perceive as having a better chance of building a broad coalition of Democrats, independents and disaffected Republicans to fulfill their most urgent goal: ejecting Mr. Trump from the White House.
The Massachusetts senator’s top campaign aides are acutely aware of their challenge on questions about Ms. Warren’s viability. They are taking a series of steps to allay the concerns, perhaps most notably arming her in the last debate with the talking point that conventional wisdom also suggested that both Mr. Trump and former President Barack Obama were risky nominees because they broke from the traditional commander-in-chief mold. After the debate, Warren aides blasted clips of that remark from her social media accounts.
But even after Ms. Warren turned in two well-received debate performances, a Quinnipiac survey showed she had not made gains on the question of who has the best chance to beat Mr. Trump: Just nine percent said she did, while 49 percent pointed to Mr. Biden.
In an interview before a town hall meeting in western Iowa last week, Ms. Warren, acknowledging the questions about her candidacy, said there was only one overarching way to quiet the skeptics….
“I love her enthusiasm. She’s smart, she’s very smart. I think she would make an amazing president,” said Ms. Phelps, before quickly adding: “I’m worried about whether she can win. I worry that she’s being pulled even further to the left and that concerns me. Because we need to win, we just need to win.”…
Many Democrats like Ms. Warren — some wait for an hour to take pictures with her — and she continues to gain supporters. But even among some of her enthusiasts, the questions about her vulnerabilities linger….
Come primary day in state with large black Democratic voters?
Joe Biden will persevere ….
