Townhall -- Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is positioning herself to be a thorn in the Trump White House’s side, may not have a clear road to re-election in 2018. According to a new poll, 56 percent of Massachusetts voters think someone else should be given a chance to represent the state in the U.S. Senate, compared to 44 percent who support her re-election (via The Hill):
Forty-six percent of all voters told WBUR they should "give someone else a chance," compared to 44 percent who said Warren should be reelected.
Steve Koczela — president of The MassINC Polling Group, which conducted the survey — said the numbers shouldn't be "reassuring" for Warren, who is up for reelection in 2018.
"No one's going to look at a 44 percent reelect number and think that that's a good number," he told WBUR.
Roughly a third of Democrats told WBUR that someone else should be given a shot at Warren's seat. Ninety two percent of Republicans also want someone else besides Warren, a liberal favorite in the Senate, as well as 46 percent of independent voters.
Now, there are a few other things to consider. One is that Warren also holds a 51 percent approval rating. If Warren manages to shine in opposing a Trump initiative, those ratings could go up in deep-blue Massachusetts—and possibly shift those figures concerning giving someone else a chance to take her spot in the polls. It all depends on the issue. Second, the sample size was a bit low—only 508 registered voters were polled. Usually a sample of at least 600 people is the minimum for an accurate statewide poll, or at least one that give you the best picture (not saying that 92 shy would lead to widely inaccurate results). Last, we still have a lot of time before the midterm season begins. Anything can happen, but we can hope that Warren gets the axe at this point. What we do know is that she's starting to annoy liberals. MSNBC host Mike Brzezinski said that her angry demeanor was getting exhausting to watch.
Blog Author's Comments -- I must admit that I cannot stand to watch or listen to this woman. All Warren has ever done is lie and lie again. She has never done one thing to help anyone except herself. She is the poster child for affirmative action fraud, never mind the progressive policies she advocates. She says she is an American Indian because of something her grandmother told her. Warren has sought to explain her controversial decision to list herself as a Native American in a directory of law professors for nearly a decade before getting a job at Harvard Law School and said she was absolutely qualified for the job. She did so because of stories her grandmother told her and that she has high cheekbones. According to a Boston-area genealogist's report, Warren is 1/32nd Cherokee. This is a joke but it did get her into Harvard. She is a totally unlikeable creature so can anyone tell me why this woman was elected to office?
I have to assume she was the only one they could find that was stupid enough to meet the Democrats standards of ignorance. I really would like to see her go, but I am not going to hold my breath. Look at the state she's from. Look at the electorate there. Even if she does lose her seat, it will probably be because she lost the primary to a slightly less progressive Democrat than to anyone resembling a true moderate, or being defeated by a Republican.
This seems to me like another bogus poll. Haven't these pollsters learned anything yet? Not that I would mind seeing her kicked to the curb, but these polls seldom reflect reality. One would think that she just may be a candidate for the Democrats in 2020, because they don't really have many members of the party on the bench waiting to attempt a run to unseat President Donald Trump.
