Warren's moment: Policy plans and rising polls

Warren's moment: Policy plans and rising polls
The Hill, Jun 11, 2019, Alexis Simendinger and Al Weaver

Buoyed by her continued string of policy proposals and her oft-used campaign line “I have a plan for that,” Warren has seen her stock rise and potentially alter the 2020 Democratic primary contest, especially with just over two weeks standing between the field and the first debate of the campaign. 

As Niall Stanage writes, Warren’s ascent hurts Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), with whom she’s jostled for control of the liberal lane of the primary contest while former Vice President Joe Biden reaches out for support from moderates. According to a CNN poll over the weekend, Warren now trails Sanders by a single point, closing a double-digit gap seen in polls for months. 

More telling, Sanders advisers are starting to knife Warren in the press, with one telling U.S. News & World Report that Warren “fundamentally fails a basic threshold question: Can she beat Trump?” The adviser also criticized Warren’s decision to release a DNA test in late 2018 to prove she has Native American ancestors, albeit distant. Democrats are starting to see Warren’s campaign gain momentum after a slow start, while Sanders could be losing steam with some progressives.


With Warren on helium watch, Biden faces incoming as a wounded frontrunner. His 2020 opponents see a moment of opportunity. The former vice president’s lead in polls is smaller, particularly in Iowa, as he continues to fend off attacks from several rivals.


"January 20th 2017 will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again."  --  President Donald J. Trump

The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing over again and expecting a different result. —Rita Mae Brown

Please... PLEASE... if you really want to ensure Trump's re-election, nominate Elizabeth Warren as your candidate. If you want to set back the cause of equality and give women the appearance that they will never win a Presidential election in your lifetime... nominate Elizabeth Warren as your candidate.

And then there's Liawatha's dulcet voice and her common touch. No wonder she's getting so popular!/s

I get her emails (because I responded to a poll once):


Our campaign is only possible because of grassroots donors.

Elizabeth doesn’t raise money from wealthy donors at private fundraising events. That’s why she’s had time to host town halls in 20 states and Puerto Rico this year — taking hundreds of questions and over 25,000 selfies.

Elizabeth doesn’t take a dime from federal lobbyists, corporate PACs, or PACs of any kind.

That’s how you know she’s fighting for you — not powerful special interests. Elizabeth has a plan to make Washington work for everyone, not just the rich and powerful, and it starts with grassroots donors building our movement.

Can you chip in $3 right now to help power our grassroots campaign?

As a grassroots donor, every time you see Elizabeth rolling out a new plan on the campaign trail or hosting another town hall, you’ll know that you’re making it happen.

With Elizabeth, what you see is what you get — she doesn’t make a secret argument to wealthy donors behind closed doors. She doesn’t meet with them behind closed doors, period.

It’s the same thing with these emails: We don’t have a secret fundraising strategy. Megadonors with Super PACs aren’t waiting in the wings, ready to fill in the gap.

This is the whole plan: We email you and ask you to contribute. Then we invest in organizing — and together, we build a winning campaign.

Join fellow grassroots donors from Texas and across the country to help power our movement.

Thank you,

Team Warren
