Some of the formerly dominant Democrat candidates are getting their due wake-up calls in this 2020 presidential election. As caucuses and primaries take place throughout the nation, many contenders who thought they’d win in a landslide amongst their left-wing base are learning otherwise. Thus far, the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary are done; meanwhile, candidates who remain in the race are focusing on campaigning in South Carolina.
However, not all 2020 candidates are able to give South Carolina as much energy as they’d like. Elizabeth Warren certainly falls into this category, reports Breitbart News, seeing as Warren is presently reducing the amount of money she spends on campaign ads. This spending reduction comes as the Massachusetts senator attempts to recover from dismally poor outcomes in both Iowa and New Hampshire.
Why is Warren Cutting Back Campaign Spending?
In a nutshell, the socialist candidate is attempting to stretch her resources as far as possible. The aforementioned poor outcomes have essentially forced Warren to put together a different strategy for campaign ads and the funds she spends on them. Rather than focus the bulk of her campaign funds on ads in South Carolina, she’s transferring a significant amount to Nevada. Warren’s reduction in spending is also massive, amounting to a whopping $300,000.
The outcomes that candidates experience in various states will inevitably determine the moves they make going forward. Of course, Warren’s campaign has attempted to maintain the image that they’re going strong, still fighting, etc., but this facade can only last for so long. At some point, the Massachusetts senator and the folks working for her campaign won’t be able to sustain a misleading concept about their situation.
The Message from Democrat Voters
The rise of socialism within the left-wing has significantly impacted how many Americans view and perceive Democrats. However, some political pundits estimate that not as many Democrats are extreme and socialist as it may seem. If this is truly accurate, it would explain Warren’s poor performances in various states; however, it would not account for Bernie Sanders’ win in the New Hampshire primary.
Thus far, Warren has proven her lack of liability to truly connect with and energize her own base. No matter how much of a brave face the senator publically wears, no matter what statements her campaign issues, the numbers speak for themselves. Therefore, the likelihood of Warren suspending her presidential campaign sooner rather than later is higher than some folks might believe.
