According to a new survey published by the Boston Globe Thursday, nearly 60% of Massachusetts voters don’t want Sen. Elizabeth Warren to run for the presidency in 2020 against Donald Trump.
The shocking poll shows a “healthy majority” of her own constituents think it’s a bad idea for Warren to launch a campaign for the Oval Office, with 58% of likely voters urging the prominent Democrat to stay out of the race.
“This was a shocking finding to me, given that Democrats like her so much, and she has been making moves to run for president. I would have expected her to be leading this list of potential Massachusetts presidential candidates,” said David Paleologos, the analyst behind the survey.
Just 32% of Massachusetts voters think a Warren Presidency is a good idea.

HELL FREEZES OVER: Elizabeth Warren ADMITS Tax Cuts Are WORKING
Hyper-liberal Senator Elizabeth Warren was forced to eat her own words on Friday, directly acknowledging that the GOP tax plan was helping millions of working-class families across the United States; adding she’s “in favor of all of that.”
The Massachusetts Democrat was speaking during a radio interview when she made the rare admission, saying she’s “glad” when she reads “that there are companies that have given out” big holiday bonuses following the law’s passage.
“I am glad when I read that there are companies that have given out $1,000 bonuses.”
“Look, I am glad when I read that there are companies that have given out $1,000 bonuses. There are companies that say they’re going to re-work some of their benefit plans. I’m in favor of all of that. I want to see working families do better, you bet,” admitted Warren.
The Senator immediately went back to her tired script, saying she was in favor of the bonuses but unhappy that the tax cuts resulted in a “giveaway” to American businesses.
“But let’s keep in mind, the giveaway was $1.4 trillion and it was given directly to the biggest corporations and the billionaires in this country,” she concluded.

IT BEGINS: Elizabeth Warren Introduces ‘ACCOUNTABLE CAPITALISM ACT’
Firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren introduced new legislation this week; unveiling her ‘Accountable Capitalism Act’ that seeks to make the nation’s largest companies “more accountable” to local communities than “shareholders.”
Warren revealed her potential 2020 campaign promise in an op-ed published by the Wall Street Journal, where the left-wing legislator slammed the country’s biggest corporations for not treating their employees as “priorities.”
“That shift has had a tremendous effect on the economy,” she wrote. “In the early 1980s, large American companies sent less than half their earnings to shareholders, spending the rest on their employees and other priorities.”
“But between 2007 and 2016, large American companies dedicated 93% of their earnings to shareholders,” Warren added.
“To give employees, communities and other stakeholders a leg up, her bill would require companies with more than $1 billion in annual revenue to obtain a federal corporate charter. That charter would require corporate directors to ‘consider the interests of all major corporate stakeholders—not only shareholders—in company decisions. Shareholders could sue if they believed directors weren’t fulfilling those obligations,’” writes the Washington Examiner.
