Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) was urged in a Boston Globe editorial not to run for president in the 2020 election because “she has become a divisive figure” and there are warning signs to her popularity.
“Warren missed her moment in 2016, and there’s reason to be skeptical of her prospective candidacy in 2020. While Warren won reelection, her margin of victory in November suggests there’s a ceiling on her popularity; Baker garnered more votes than she did in a state that is supposed to be a Democratic haven,” the editorial said.”
Meanwhile, a September poll indicated that Massachusetts voters were more enthusiastic about Patrick making a White House bid than Warren.”
The editorial continues: “Those are warning signs from the voters who know her best. While Warren is an effective and impactful senator with an important voice nationally, she has become a divisive figure. A unifying voice is what the country needs now after the polarizing politics of Donald Trump.”
Warren has not been doing great in recent polls, which find her trailing Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden. Obamaland is signaling that they want Beto O’Rourke to run for president because he is seen as a younger version of President Barack Obama. Sens. Amy Klobuchar, Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Sherrod Brown, and Jeff Merkley are also mulling a 2020 presidential run.
