Elizabeth Warren's honeymoon may end. a minor application and its rivals treated her as such, even when she recovered from that wound
The story goes below
But with the Massachusetts senator now huge crowds and leaps in national polls, rival campaigns begin to focus on Warren, seeking to dampen her inertia.
lines of attack: calling her famous policy proposals a "scam", prompting her to say how she would pay for a massive car health plan, highlighting the lack of diversity in her supporters and dropping reminders of long feathers e Warren as Republican.
Assistants to three rival candidates confirmed in interviews, they resume Warren's opposition polls in preparation for the next debate on September 12. Still others privately complain that she received the wrong treatment in the media when she revealed a litany of ambitious plans without being squeezed where the money would come from to pay for it.
Warren supporters said the stems equate to sour grapes from campaigns that do not take it seriously until it is shot to the ballot boxes, and are now looking with envy at the organization in which they gather while busy attacking each other. .
It seems anyway that Warren, who in many polls only brings out Joe Biden, has a rougher section in front of her.
"It is inevitable: what goes up must come down. The Law of Political Physics, "Dick Harpootlian, one of Joe Biden's leading organizers in South Carolina, said of Warren's turn in the hot seat.
His adversaries, for the time being, are treading carefully, cautiously alienating the Warren supporters who hope to win. eventually. Its icons Bernie Sanders and Warren have long had a non-aggression pact and various polls show overlap between supporters of Kamala Harris and Warren.
But surrogates for these top-level candidates are starting to speak up.
Actress Susan Sarandon, while in Iowa supporting Bernie Sanders, cast a shadow on Warren last week. "[Sanders] is not someone who was previously a Republican. He is not someone who raises money or still raises money on Wall Street. It's the real deal, ”she said.
A competitive campaign advisor who speaks on condition of anonymity echoes some of these sentiments. If Warren attacks another recording on the debate scene, the man said he would return it in return.
"Nobody else was a Republican here," the councilor said.
Meanwhile, Harpootlian stated that Warren's menu of political proposals was to be reported.
"It has promised about $ 50 trillion in benefits over the last 30 days. Its economy is a fraud and at some point someone will point it out. She is a multimillionaire professor at Harvard. It cannot be collected against 1% – it is one of the 1%, "says Harpootlian.
Warren said that the bulk of her plans were funded – from her promise to wipe out student loan debt to universal day care – will come from a "2 million" tax on a family income of $ 50 million or more.
Some of the combs that start to appear are finer.
Jeff Weaver, Sanders Senior Advisor, Warren needles earlier this month for lack of diversity among her supporters.
Compare Yiki Sanders and Warren, Weaver told HillTV "His base is much more diverse, much more working class. the same pool of voters. "
This week on social media, Co-Chair of the Bakari Sellers Campaign in South Carolina complained how the press was processing a story about campaign workers staying at a Nevada hotel that was was part of a labor dispute.
"This is a great story and horrible oversight by Warren and Biden, intentional or not – it already says that the headline will read" Harris Crosses Culinary Union Pickets Repeatedly "or" Harris Accepts Anti-Union Executions in Cash. "
In an interview, sellers complain that Harris fought against sexism, racism "and the Russians," while others in the race, including Warren, had an easier ride, including in the debate scene.
"Elizabeth Warren received a pass in both debates," Seller said, saying he believed Warren had the best campaign of the race in 2020, but added: "I think at the end of the day the biggest criticism to Elizabeth Warren is her inability to realize her plans realistically. There are many voters – especially black voters – who will say, "A lot of it is pie in the sky and we want pie on the table."
Democratic hope Michael Bennett, who serves with Warren in the Senate, slightly criticized her this week for her support for Medicare for All.
"We have already seen the Sanders retreat and it is time for Warren to do the same and join the fight for a public option," Bennett tweeted .
It wasn't exactly a bed with roses for Warren at first. Before she even entered the race, she was dismissed as unable to connect with voters, Hilary 2.0, which was waiting to happen.
But she withstood these attacks and the strategic decisions of the campaign helped her to become an elusive target. It began to tackle its biggest obstacle, its previous claim to indigenous American ancestry, in 2018 by releasing a DNA test before declaring itself president. This allowed some of the hardest blows to unfold outside the presidential race.
Her decision to refuse to raise money for big money freed her to deal with her political platform and political strategy. And overall there is less personal enmity between Warren and other camps: Her staff, for example, were careful not to spit on social media with aides to other candidates; these types of spectacles increased the tension between other campaigns.
There is another dynamic that has been isolated so far by Warren. The other progressive in this field, Sanders, took the position that there was nothing to gain by attacking her. Sanders has repeatedly refused to go there.
"The Progressive Movement has the opportunity to win the Democratic Party nomination once in a lifetime," says Jonathan Tassini, who authored "The Bernie Sanders Fundamentals and His Vision for America." we fail either candidate because the combination of these two forces, whether it is Warren or Sanders, who carries the flag to the finals, can win the nomination. "
Adam Greene, co-author – founder of the Progressive Change Committee, which he supported Warren said the attack of Warren as a Republican – on the stage of debate or otherwise – would only cause a bang.
"It is ironic if other Democrats state that this economically populist hero who challenges the Corporations now also has the confidence that before, they were Republicans, which would only make it stronger for voters that she was more electoral against Trump – that she could appeal to both voters and voters. That would be an absurd attack, ”Green said. Regarding questions about her proposal to introduce a wealth tax to help pay for new programs, Green said, "Get into a debate with Elizabeth Warren on the plans? Probably not a good move – period. "
Warren has written some difficult stories for her, including those who study their time as a corporate lawyer. Donald Trump has returned to his Pocahontas attacks, promising to have many more stores.
"I hit her very hard and it looked like she was down and out, but that was too long ago, I had to wait. But don't worry, we'll revive it, "Trump said earlier this month.
Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendel, who backs Biden, said Warren had avoided the kind of scrutiny Biden was subjecting to because she
But Randel said Warren will not get a pass in the next presidential debate. He predicts for one time that she will be pressured into how will pay Medicare for everyone.
"Elizabeth skilfully avoids answering the question:" Would you suggest a proposed Rendell said, "Does your healthcare lead to a tax hike?" 19659054] Missing the last scoops? Sign up for POLICY POLICY and get the latest news every morning at your inbox.
