Elizabeth Warren considers dropping out of presidential race
Elizabeth is talking to her team to assess the path forward ...

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren is deciding whether or not to remain in the 2020 presidential race.

“Elizabeth is talking to her team to assess the path forward,” an aide to Warren’s campaign told The Post on condition of anonymity.

In an email sent to Warren’s entire campaign staff Wednesday, campaign manager Roger Lau wrote that the Massachusetts progressive was “going to take time right now to think through the right way to continue this fight,”  according to NBC News , which obtained the email.

“This decision is in [Elizabeth’s] hands, and it’s important that she has the time and space to consider what comes next,” Lau’s email read.

Lau acknowledged the campaign’s  disappointing performance in Super Tuesday  contests, which included a devastating third-place finish in her home state of Massachusetts.

“We fell well short of viability goals and projections, and we are disappointed in the results,” he wrote.

Warren also performed poorly in her native home of Oklahoma, where she came in a distant fourth, and failed to reach the 15 percent threshold required to collect delegates in nine of the 14 states.

The results are a stark contrast to the campaign’s  projected Super Tuesday numbers . Lau wrote in a campaign memo last month that the team expected Warren to pick up delegates in all but one state during the major day of primary contests.

“Warren is poised to finish in the top two in over half of Super Tuesday states (eight of 14), in the top three in all of them, and is on pace to pick up at-large statewide delegates in all but one,” he wrote at the time.

The progressive senator appeared so confident about her standing heading into this week that she refused to refer to her home state of Massachusetts as a “must-win” when  speaking to a Washington Post reporter  Saturday.

This pretty much means she is going to drop out.

Unless she is irrational or narcissistic (which is a possibility).

You know you're unpopular when you come in third in your own state. 

And you know someone is hopelessly narcissistic if they don't see that as a problem.

It is now down to a knock down drawn out slug fest between Biden and Sanders. My money's on Biden for the nomination.

If she drops out her base will go to Sanders, so personally I hope she doesn't.

I was so surprised with the reported results this morning. Especially MN and MA. I'm too busy today at work to pay attention to most of what's going on, but things did not turn out like I thought they would. Warren dropping from the race would be a smart play on her part. There's no mathematical path for her.

There's no mathematical path for her.

Even if she doubled or tripled her numbers she still could not come close to either of the two front runners.

Yes, the dark clouds are closing in and the wind is beginning to whip up across the long plains facing Elizabeth. All the other contestants are sheltering in place now; well Elizabeth? Tulsi? Y'all ready to call it a 'day.'? We got a comfy blanket, rolls and hot chocolate here waiting. . . .

I would guess that right now, she's working on a strategy to get the most out of this campaign that she can. Maybe she thinks she can work a deal to be VP or get a cabinet position or something.

I don't think Biden would select her for VP. Perhaps a cabinet spot, but that would depend on how well the Senate races go. It's going to be tight for both parties down ticket.

I really don't either. I think Biden will be looking for a VP that can flip a state for him, like Florida or Ohio.

Perhaps, you could be correct. Her not getting past the 15% threshold in many of the Super Tuesday states doesn't look promising though.

If Warren had not immediately gone for the jugular of her opponents from the get go and spent less time patting herself on the back for her alleged accomplishments, she might have stood a better chance. Instead, she just turned a lot of potential voters off with her attitude.

Agreed, she really turned off a lot people. I never cared for her anyway, but she completely blew it with how she conducted herself.

She turned me off when she did nothing but attack others.

Same here. She did little to support her own stand on policies and important issues, preferring to be over aggressive in her unnecessary attacks on everyone else. And got all lathered up when it came back at her.

To me, she was just another Trump who loves to dish it out, but, can't take it. And her pandering was really disgusting.

Typical academia type, thinking they are better than everyone else, talking down their nose at everyone who is not of like mind.

She was done before she started.

haughty. . . including some republicans and conservatives!

You see what you want and nothing much other? That's interesting. I'll call it "Selecto-vision."

Lol ... c'mon man .... i never said no conservative were "haughty" as well.   Just that it was great description of Warren.  

If you want to discuss potentially "haughty" conservatives perhaps you can start a new article regarding the same.

Beyond her problems with the truth (her heritage, private schooling her kids, being fired for being pregnant), Warren and others like Harris and Booker misread the mood of the electorate. She pandered to the twitterverse and MSM, and did really well with those gatekeepers.  I've seen a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth from the blue checkmarks on twitter who just can't believe Warren got crushed in the primaries.  But twitter is not reality, and as a study I saw last week demonstrates, twitterusers and journalists are far to the left of the center the American people as a whole, and the Democratic Party in particular.  With Sanders already having a devoted group of followers, there was no room for another far left quasi socialist. 

She won the twitter primary, but never seemed to realize that's not where the votes in the Democratic Party are.

True, it does seem like the Democratic voters are looking for someone honest to replace Trump.

Her main problem is that she's just too far left, and not nearly practical enough.

A lot of exit polls said Democratic voters were looking at someone that could beat Trump was their #1 priority yesterday.

6.1.2  katrix  replied to  evilgenius @6.1.1    3 months ago

That's certainly my number one focus. Even if I personally agreed with Warren or Sander's policies, I still wouldn't want either of them getting the nomination for that reason. I think that would just guarantee a Trump win.

Yup. And with about 42% of voters being indies, they need that vote to win, and most of them are pretty centrist.

Yeah, Elizabeth Warren has committed the great sin of wanting to make things better for the working class. 

Lets crucify her. 

Geez. 

People like her and Sanders are pathfinders. When some of their goals are achieved they will be remembered for paving the way. 

Someone has to. 

I really like Elizabeth Warren. I think she is a great American, and I am sure that history will be kind to her.

Pessley will likely be endorsing Sanders now that Warren is out.
