Many Democrats Want Elizabeth Warren To Run For President In 2024

Printed from:

She didn’t win a single state in the Democratic primary last time around, but many Democrats want to see U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) run for president again.

Most Democrats don’t want President Joe Biden, who is 79 years old, to seek a second term, according to a Yahoo/You Gov poll released this month. The poll found that most Americans oppose both former President Donald Trump (59 percent) and current president Joe Biden (57 percent) running for president in 2024.

If Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents could choose their party’s nominee for president in 2024, however, there would be a substantial block that would choose Warren over anyone else.

The poll found that Biden would lead the hypothetical Democratic field in the primary with a mere 20 percent supporting the incumbent president. Four other possible Democratic candidates drew double-digit support in the poll:  vice president Kamala Harris (13 percent), Warren (11 percent), U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vermont (10 percent), and U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg (10 percent).

Each one of those candidates who got at least 10 percent support in the poll ran for president last time around. 

When Warren ran for president, she was the subject of controversy for a few reasons.

One was her alleged American Indian  ancestry, although ancestry results came back showing she may be as little as 1/1024th indigenous. That’s the case even though she identified herself as American Indian on a Texas State Bar write-in form in 1986.

People on the right were also critical of her telling a black woman who supported school choice that she sent her kids to public school, even though one of her children spent some time at a private school in Texas. Warren strongly opposes school voucher programs and charter schools.

Additionally, she angered Sanders supporters when she claimed that he told her in 2018 that America wouldn’t vote for a woman president. During a January 2020 debate, Sanders denied making the remark. After the debate, Warren was caught on a hot mic after a debate telling Sanders “I think you called me a liar on national TV?”

Warren failed to win a single state in the 2020 Democratic primary, including Massachusetts. She came in third in the Commonwealth on Super Tuesday, receiving 21.5 percent of the vote as Biden got 33.5 percent and Sanders got 26.7 percent.

Warren has said that she plans to run for re-election to the U.S. Senate in 2024. However, she also said in 2018 that she wouldn’t run for president in 2020 — and did anyway.

Senator Warren’s office could not be reached for comment on Monday.
