Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has spent years planning her 2020 presidential campaign. Beloved by the mainstream media, Warren has raised millions of dollars from liberal donors across America since 2016.
With the support of the Democratic establishment and Wall Street cash, Warren was primed to take the Oval Office from President Donald Trump.
But there’s just one problem: No one told the voters that Warren is supposed to be crowned queen.
And according to a stunning poll, not even Warren’s core supporters want her to be president.
According to The Boston Herald, Warren finished a distant third place in a recent 2020 Democratic primary poll in her home state of Massachusetts.
That’s seriously bad news for Warren and her political backers, experts say.
“This is a concern for Warren who at this time does not have a firewall in her home state, and her rival [Bernie] Sanders has a strong base in the Bay State,” Spencer Kimball, director of Emerson Polling, told The Hill. Emerson conducted the poll where Warren received only 14 percent of likely Democratic voters support in her state.
Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-V.T., led with 26 percent of the votes. Former Vice President Joe Biden followed next with the support of 23 percent of likely Democratic primary voters in the state
Even at third, Warren isn’t safe. Just behind her was Mayor Pete Buttigieg from South Bend, Indiana at 11 percent support.
“This poll continues to show Mayor Pete increasing momentum in the Democratic primary with 11% of the vote, just 3 points behind Senator Warren,” Kimball told The Hill. “This finding is similar to the results of the Emerson poll conducted a few weeks earlier in Iowa, but higher than the latest polls in Nevada and Pennsylvania, where Mayor Pete had 5% and 6% of the vote.”

If she can’t win in her own backyard against a mayor from Indiana, Warren has very little chance making noise in early primary states like Iowa and South Carolina.
And that means Warren’s 2020 hopes are finished.
