OpEd: What happened to Elizabeth Warren?
MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — For a brief moment, concerned looks crossed the faces of some Elizabeth Warren supporters gathered for her election night event in a cavernous building near the Manchester airport. There were no TVs visible to most of the crowd, a common feature for a struggling campaign that doesn’t want the audience to see bad news. There was no warmup speaker. At 8:20 p.m., facing a fourth-place finish in New Hampshire after a third-place showing a week ago in Iowa, Warren walked onstage without fanfare.
She began by acknowledging that Bernie Sanders and Pete Buttigieg “had strong nights.” Then, she congratulated Amy Klobuchar for her surprise showing. And then, she said what caused those concerned looks.
The article goes on to state the following:
Instead, Warren delivered a plea for party unity, which she suggested could somehow be achieved in the middle of a deeply fractious nomination battle. The Democratic Party could be “headed for another one of those long primary fights that last for months,” she said. Battling between factions has “taken a sharp turn in recent weeks,” she noted, a development that threatens the future of the party. And then she said the solution was … Elizabeth Warren. “Our campaign is best positioned to beat Donald Trump in November — because we can unite our party.”
York notes that just three months ago, Warren led the polls in New Hampshire, but ever since “her trajectory has been down, down, down.”
Then Warren had a “lackluster finish in Iowa and did worse in New Hampshire,” York writes, and her “supporters still cannot figure out quite how it happened”… yet they “sense that she is now in a very difficult position” with no sign that she can turn things around.
York also said that the primary results in New Hampshire revealed the “the implosion of Joe Biden,” noting that he led the RealClearPolitics average of polls for the state as recently as Jan. 15.
