Elizabeth Warren's ascent is no accident. Go to one of her rallies and you will see an operation tantamount to OFA but in more of a stealth manner. I watched their ingenious use of technology.
Most Americans that are not political junkies or nearly one hundred percent wedded to a candidate or opposing ideology will leave every one of her rallies feeling she was either speaking to them or someone they know. More importantly many leave knowing she has a solution unlike most running that is doable.
The excerpted article below is worth the read.
After Two Debates, Warren Is Getting More Popular | FiveThirtyEight
Since the beginning of the year, FiveThirtyEight has been tracking polls of the candidates’ favorable and unfavorable ratings. Those ratings are important because, unlike in general elections, primary voters are often considering several different candidates, even if they tell pollsters they have a first choice. (And at this point, only a small percentage of Democratic primary voters — 12 percent, according to a NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll from July — say they have made up their mind about whom to vote for.) Candidates who are well-liked are in a much better position to pick up support than those who are not. ...
By this measure, Democrats’ favorite candidate is not polling leader and former Vice President Joe Biden: It’s Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who sports the highest net favorability rating (+54 percentage points). Indeed, according to The Economist’s 2020 primary tracker, slightly more people are considering voting for Warren than are considering Biden, even though Biden is currently the most popular first choice. He leads in most (though not all) polls.
Why Elizabeth Warren can beat every one currently running
Support Independent Media
Elizabeth Warren can beat every one running including Bernie and the President. Most candidates are still campaigning under two premises. The first is that Americans are stupid. The second is that they don't want details of solutions. Warren has created a campaign that addresses both assumptions. Most importantly she understands that some do want to hear solutions. So how does she do that?
U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders' identifies all our problems better than all. And he knows the solution is not unfettered capitalism and he says so.
Elizabeth Warren understands the hill she has to climb. And so far she has one-upped Bernie in that she is finding a method to not maintain her base but grow it in a 20+ candidate field. She is working deep from within the core in many respects. By the time many see it, the insides have already changed.
First and foremost she is a woman. Secondly, she knows the financial system and Americans perceived attachment to it. She decides to fight a one-front battle. "I am a capitalist," she says. Then she ensures here policies socialize capitalism. Americans get the policies that really speak to them without the word they need not fear. Trump has so hurt much of his base that she gets a few of them that are not misogynists to at least listen. She did this in West Virginia, MAGAland successfully. She made herself a substantive person instead of a caricature to them.
I am calling this race hers to lose. The current frontrunner can't last the entire campaign. Unless Bernie "meat" up the path like she is doing, he will continue to lose some of his supporters to her.
I don't care if Bernie or Warren wins. Either way, you and I and real Progressives throughout the country will have to remember the President and Presidency are different. The presidency has a much larger gravitational field and it can only be changed intentionally with a popular president whose hand we force. We must make the president change the presidency to one that listens to us and uses the bully pulpit to force Congress to do the same. Elizabeth or Bernie would make a good conduit as they are not yet wedded n any substantial manner to the corporatocracy.
