It’s no secret that Senator Elizabeth Warren is eyeing a run at the White House in 2020 — but some new polling data just dropped some seriously bad news on the outspoken liberal leader.
Warren has been traveling the country to raise her political profile, and has raised a stunning $5.2 million for her reelection campaign in the first quarter of 2017. In the meantime, political experts have marveled at the cross-country fundraising juggernaut she’s managed to create.
Less thrilled, though, are her constitutes in the Bay State.
In fact, Warren has the least support in her own state than all of her potential Democratic rivals.
Warren, “who spent the 2016 cycle as a chief antagonist to Donald Trump, has the highest disapproval among a list of possible 2020 Democratic candidates. In Massachusetts, 38 percent of voters disapprove of her ahead of her re-election next fall,” Morning Consult reported Tuesday.

The numbers have surprised political experts, who have noted this disapproval rating is a five points jump since last year.
And the news has her conservative rivals thrilled.
Warren is increasingly unlikely to win the White House — and Republicans in her state have begun to wonder if she could lose her senate reelection later this year.
“Massachusetts voters have spent the last few months watching Senator Warren vote against home-state interests like more funding for the opioid crisis; and engage in the partisan grandstanding that’s typical of DC insiders,” Massachusetts GOP Chairman Kirsten Hughes said in a statement.
“Her record has exposed her as a hyperpartisan bully more interested in scoring political points than delivering actual results, and Massachusetts has little to gain by sending her back to Washington,” Hughes said.
