. . . “Buttigieg has broken into the top tier, apparently at the expense of Warren, who has taken a dive after being hammered for being too far left on health care and other issues,” . . .

The Warren free fall is real

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is free, free falling.

The 2020 Democratic primary candidate’s poll numbers have collapsed in recent weeks, inciting panicky headlines like, “What happened to Elizabeth Warren?” from newsrooms that have all but formally endorsed her campaign.

A new Quinnipiac survey of Democrats and “Democratic-leaners” released this week shows Warren in third place with 14% of support. She registers just behind South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (16%), and front-runner Joe Biden (24%). . . .

. . . An Oct. 6-8 YouGov survey showed Warren registering at 29%. A Nov. 17-19 YouGov survey showed her at 22%.

Overall, the RealClearPolitics polling average shows Warren’s numbers have dropped by more than 10 points from her Oct. 9 high of 26.8% to just 16.7% in late November. . . .

. . . A couple of things may explain Warren’s polling collapse. First, there is the obvious: Between now and mid-October, the senator released her ludicrous, multitrillion-dollar Medicare for All plan and her equally ludicrous policy paper explaining how she plans to “fund” it. In fact, if you look at the RealClearPolitics polling average chart, the drop in support for Warren’s candidacy coincides almost precisely with the release of her healthcare proposal . . . .

. . . However, there is another, smaller theory to explain the collapse: “Her support base was exactly the kind of voters who would read about and be spooked by the NYT polls,” said New York Magazine ’s Josh Barro.

I am sympathetic to this take. I also believe it does not have to be an either/or situation. It could be that Warren’s support is hemorrhaging because of her farcical policy proposals and because the sort of person who supported her in the first place is also the sort of person to jump ship at the first sign of choppy waters.

Is this good news or not?

I would call it wishful thinking (mine) but I don’t put much stock in YouGov polling to reflect a national trend. I enjoy doing their polls sometimes but the members are very partisan and not your average joe.
