If the presidential election were held today and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts Democrat, were her party’s nominee, she’d no doubt win her deep blue home state.
But her problem is that she may never even get close to the nomination — in her home state.
According to a new survey, “Fauxcohontas” is currently running third behind two other 2020 Democratic hopefuls: Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vermont) is polling first in Massachusetts, and former VP Joe Biden is second.
Between them, they take more than half of voters, according to the Emerson Polling survey.
.@EmersonPolling has Sanders 26%, Biden 23%, Warren 14%, Buttigieg 11%, O'Rourke 8%, Harris 7%… in Massachusetts. No Biden baseline from Emerson in this state, but inclined to think this is in-line with belief that he hasn't not declined last few weeks. For Warren, yikes. pic.twitter.com/P3RWOAifeU

With the first Democratic debates about two months away and the Iowa caucuses about 10 months away, Warren isn’t polling well at all. And remember, she was the very first Democrat to announce she was running against POTUS Donald Trump.
As Matt Vespa at TownHall correctly points out, trying to guess at this point who the eventual Democratic nominee will be is foolish.
But, he notes:
National and early state polling has looked quite weak for Warren thus far, to put it kindly, and this fresh set of data out of her home state suggests that she may not be a viable leading contender for her party’s nomination…anywhere.
The fact is, Warren was carrying a lot of political baggage from the outset. Her fake Native American claim and the resultant DNA test to ‘prove’ she was something like 1/1,024th Indian went very badly for her. And even in her own state, it looks like she has yet to recover.
