The latest polls in New Hampshire show Sen Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) lagging behind other Democrat presidential front-runners in the state. For example, a new Reuters poll showed Warren with 11 percent support, trailing behind Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden as well as former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Warren was hoping to win in the Granite Atate as it shares a border with her home state of Massachusetts. The senator has been doubling down on claims that she’s running a grassroots campaign that doesn’t receive money from billionaire donors.
“I don’t have a campaign that has been shaped by a bunch of consultants, you figured that one out,’ she stated. “I don’t have a campaign that has a bunch of proposals that are carefully designed not to offend big donors, I passed that stop sign a long time ago.”
Warren has also taken aim at former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg in recent days, following his unexpected victory in Iowa. Meanwhile, Sanders has continued to outperform her in polls for her home state of Massachusetts.
