Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has been enjoying some serious limelight as of late. Her being shut down by Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on the Senate Floor for violating senate rules caused a wave of media sympathy. This attention prompted the creation of dramatic Twitter hashtags, comparisons to civil rights heroes of the past, and even caused a mob of 200 people to form outside McConnell's Kentucky home with participants reading out Loretta Scott King's letter about Jeff Sessions.
But according to Politico a recent Morning Consult poll conducted on the 9th and 10th of February, Warren's continued hard lean to the left, and the reaction from hard leftists to it, is not helping her garner the support she may be wishing for.
But, in the fourth week of Trump's presidency, a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows that Democrats could be in trouble — and Trump could triumph — if they continue their lurch to the left.
Despite the public's increasing misgivings about Trump's behavior and tactics in the White House, he still beats Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in a hypothetical matchup, 42 percent to 36 percent — a fairly impressive margin for a less-than-popular president against the prominent senator.
That means even with awareness and sympathy for Warren at its height, she still cannot overcome the current Republican president. What's more, this poll is Democrat heavy with a D+7 sample. Up against any other Democrat, Trump loses 43 to 35. In other words, Democrats would love to vote for a Democrat, so long as that Democrat is not Elizabeth Warren.
Other recent polls have also been kind to Trump. A recent Gallup poll showed that the majority of Americans believe Trump to be a strong leader who keeps his promises. Just last week, a surprising poll from Emerson College showed that most Americans believe Trump to be more truthful than the media that reports on him.
