Not too long ago, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren was the frontrunner for the Democrat Party nomination.
But now the worm has turned.
And Elizabeth Warren could drop out of the race because of this massive crisis.
Elizabeth Warren spent months slowly and meticulously building her base of support in the Democrat Party by adopting a bushel of socialist and anti-American policy positions.
Warren championed free healthcare for illegal aliens and decriminalizing the act of illegal immigration.
That was not all.
Warren also endorsed gun bans and abortion on demand.
But the cherry on top was Warren signing on to Bernie Sanders’ signature proposal of a Soviet-style government takeover of healthcare.
This culminated with Warren leading the polls in Iowa and New Hampshire, as well as the fact that she outraised former frontrunner Joe Biden by nearly ten million dollars in the third quarter fundraising period.
But in a matter of weeks, the bottom fell out from underneath Warren as she could not explain how she would pay her $20 trillion healthcare scheme without raising taxes on all Americans as well as why 180 million Americans would be happy losing their private health insurance.
Warren’s constantly shifting positions on both counts sent Democrats scurrying from Warren and to kicking the tires on other candidates.
In national polls, Warren’s support cratered; one poll showed Warren losing half her support in two weeks.
And in Iowa and New Hampshire, Warren trails homosexual South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.
That set off panic alarms in the Warren camp.
And with the fourth quarter fundraising deadline approaching, Warren let her supporters know just how dire the situation was.
Warren’s campaign confessed to supporters that their fourth quarter fundraising total was 30 percent behind the previous reporting period.
The Warren campaign wrote:
In this email, we’re going to do something different — something a little risky.
Traditionally, campaigns wait until after the mandatory FEC reporting deadlines to announce how much they’ve raised. But this isn’t a traditional campaign. We’re a grassroots team, and you should know exactly where things stand right now — and exactly why it’s important that you give.
So far this quarter, we’ve raised a little over $17 million. That’s a good chunk behind where we were at this time last quarter.
Warren’s slowing fundraising pace was the final sign that her campaign’s momentum slowed.
If Warren finishes in third or fourth in both Iowa and New Hampshire it will be difficult for her to chart a path forward to the nomination.
At that point, her fundraising will dry up completely and Warren will be faced with a hard choice about staying in the race and hoping for a miracle in Nevada and South Carolina or getting out of the race before her reputation is damaged from a string of dismal performances.
