CPAC attendees see Elizabeth Warren as most beatable Dem in 2020
From Fox News:
An unofficial straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference this week suggested that attendees see Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., as the Democrat they think Trump would be most likely to defeat in 2020.
According to CNN, the poll taken Thursday and Friday posed the following question to 75 respondees: "Which Democrat considering a run in 2020 do you think Trump would be most likely to defeat?"
From among that small sampling, Warren came first with 22 votes, with Oprah Winfrey coming in second place with 10.
Warren, whose far-left views have led conservatives to believe that she would be unelectable in certain parts of the country, has been a regular punching bag of President Trump -- who has given her the nicknames “goofy” and “Pocahontas.”
The latter is a reference to a longstanding controversy about Warren’s claims to have Native American heritage. During her 2012 Senate run, it emerged that she was touted by Harvard as a minority hire after she had claimed to be part Cherokee. But she did not provide documentation, and one report estimated she could be just 1/32 American Indian.
Elizabeth Warren Is Fighting Back Against Her "Pocahontas" Moniker!
Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is fighting back against her "Pocahontas" nickname, a moniker given to her for her allegedly using supposed "Native American" ancestry in her blood to get favorable treatment in life.
From Fox News:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has had it with the whole “Pocahontas” thing.
The Massachusetts Democrat used a surprise appearance Wednesday before a Native American audience to launch a fiery -- albeit belated -- counter-attack against President Trump for using that nickname as far back as the 2016 campaign.
In the D.C. address, Warren accused Trump of engaging in the “disrespect of Native people” by using the term -- while doubling down on her past claims of American Indian ancestry that earned her the moniker in the first place.
“I’ve noticed that every time my name comes up, President Trump likes to talk about Pocahontas,” Warren said in a speech to the National Congress of American Indians, according to prepared remarks.
Speaking of Trump, the potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate said: “Now we have a president who can’t make it through a ceremony honoring Native American war heroes without reducing Native history, Native culture, Native people to the butt of a joke. The joke, I guess, is supposed to be on me.”
She added: “Our country’s disrespect of Native people didn’t start with President Trump.”
Trump has repeatedly mocked Warren for past claims she has made about being part Native American – claims contested by opponents during her Senate runs.
During her run for the Senate in 2012, it was revealed Harvard once touted her as a minority hire, citing Native American ancestry even though she hasn’t referred to herself that way in more recent years. She had claimed to be part Cherokee. But she did not provide documentation, and one report at the time estimated she could be just 1/32 American Indian.
