Sen. Elizabeth Warren is refusing to drop from the Democratic presidential primary race despite a rather pitiful showing in the Super Tuesday races, including a loss in her own home state, which has absolutely got to leave a mark.
You know, if your own home state doesn’t want you as president and you finish poorly in the vast majority of other races, it would seem to most sane individuals that folks “just weren’t that into you,” but apparently Warren is in denial, which is the first step of grief.
Here’s more from Daily Wire:
The Associated Press reports that Warren “was speaking to staffers and assessing the path forward” and that her “run was in serious doubt after she finished a surprisingly weak third in Super Tuesday’s Democratic primary in her home state of Massachusetts.”
Worse still, Warren placed no better than fourth in most of the Super Tuesday states, leaving her with a gain of of only a few delegates, and a total of only 50 delegates, against former Vice President Joe Biden’s 453 and Sen. Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) 382. At one point, Tuesday night, Warren was tied with Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), who snagged her first delegate from a primary in American Samoa.
Warren’s campaign has been on a downward trajectory since November, when she was unable to successfully argue that she would not, as president, be forced to raise taxes on the middle class to fund vast expansions of the Federal government, including a “Medicare for All” plan and a full bailout of student loan debt. She’s never recovered, and placed a disappointing third in Iowa, and fourth in New Hampshire — a state she was once slated to win.
What is there to reassess? The American voters spoke pretty clear and the message they delivered is that nobody wants Warren for president. Hence, the next logical step is to suspend the campaign and move on.
Warren is behaving like that one clingy girlfriend that just can’t accept that her boyfriend has broken up with her and wants to see other people.
It’s time to hang it up. Just let it go. You’ll feel so much better, Liz.
