Massachusetts, and America, are sick and tired of the radical alt left liberal Elizabeth Warren.
“As of now, do you think Elizabeth Warren
deserves reelection or is it time to give someone else a chance?” Forty-six percent answered “give someone else a chance,” compared with 44 percent who responded “deserves reelection.”
Further, the man prominently mentioned as a prospective opponent enjoys significantly higher ratings. Fifty-nine percent of respondents approve of the job Republican Governor Charlie Baker is doing. Only 18 percent disapprove. And when the same question was posed about Baker, whether he deserves reelection or someone else should get a chance, reelection won out by a 51-29 margin.
Democrats are on the defensive big-time in 2018, having to defend 23 seats (plus two independents who caucus with the democrats), compared to just eight for the republicans. Reclaiming control of the chamber is probably out of the question for the democrats during the midterms, but hanging on to Warren’s seat could be crucial in making sure republicans don’t reach a filibuster-proof majority. And, of course, there’s the fact that Warren has become one of the party’s most prominent voices.
