Democratic Senator Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren has become one of a long line of politicians to begin running for President without ever saying the words out loud.
During a recent MSNBC interview, Warren ducked and stammered trying to answer a direct question about her White House ambitions.
Not a great start. “Warren dodges on whether she’ll run for president in 2020” reads a recent headline in Politico.
But as Colin Reed from the Boston Herald points out in a story published today, Warren’s support isn’t only questionable nation-wide – it’s also badly flagging in Massachusetts, her represented state.
A WBUR survey of Massachusetts voters shows Warren losing support among independents, a critical Bay State voting bloc.
Only 33 percent of non-party-registered voters approve of their senator, numbers that pale in comparison to those of Governor Charlie Baker, who enjoys the support of 63 percent of independents and 71 percent of Democrats.
