A new poll released this week shows firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren rising among likely Democratic voters with former Vice President Joe Biden holding a clear lead over his progressive opponents.
“Former Vice President Joe Biden remains the clear front-runner in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, but a new national poll is the latest to indicate a recovery by Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts. The Quinnipiac University public opinion survey also appears to suggest a drop in support for rising star Pete Buttigieg,” reports Fox News.
“Biden stands at 35 percent among Democrats or Democratic-leaning voters questioned in the survey, which was conducted May 16-20. Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont is in second place, at 16 percent. The former vice president edged down 3 percentage points from Quinnipiac’s previous poll, which was conducted in April, with Sanders jumping 5 points,” adds the report.
Warren’s numbers are also improving; rising to 13% from 9% last month. Buttigieg’s support dipped, however, dropping from 10% to 5%.
Warren’s increase in popularity comes days after she flat-out refused to appear before a Fox News Town Hall.
“I love town halls. I’ve done more than 70 since January, and I’m glad to have a television audience be a part of them. Fox News has invited me to do a town hall, but I’m turning them down—here’s why,” posted Warren on social media.
“Fox News is a hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists—it’s designed to turn us against each other, risking life and death consequences, to provide cover for the corruption that’s rotting our government and hollowing out our middle class,” she adds. “Hate-for-profit works only if there’s profit, so Fox News balances a mix of bigotry, racism, and outright lies with enough legit journalism to make the claim to advertisers that it’s a reputable news outlet. It’s all about dragging in ad money—big ad money.”

ANOTHER NEW DEAL? Warren Proposes Using US MILITARY to Combat Climate Change
Firebrand Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren unveiled her latest proposal to combat climate change Monday; suggesting the use of the US military to confront global warming.
“In short, climate change is real, it is worsening by the day, and it is undermining our military readiness. And instead of meeting this threat head-on, Washington is ignoring it — and making it worse,” writes Warren in an op-ed published by Medium.
“We have the most capable military in the world. It’s also the single largest government consumer of energy, and it’s dependent on fossil fuels. The Pentagon spends about $4 billion a year to power its bases at fixed locations and consumes tens of billions of barrels of fuel per year,” she adds.
“Nibbling around the edges of the problem is no longer enough — the urgency of the moment demands more. That’s why today I am introducing my Defense Climate Resiliency and Readiness Act to harden the U.S. military against the threat posed by climate change, and to leverage its huge energy footprint as part of our climate solution,” concludes Warren.
Together, we can work with our military to fight climate change. https://t.co/fYixnw11bz

The far-left Senator’s comments come weeks after she unveiled a series of new government programs that economists say will cost US taxpayers trillions per year.
“If we put a 2% tax on the wealthiest families in the country, we can provide universal Pre-K, universal free college, knock back student loan debt for 95% of Americans—and still have a trillion dollars leftover,” claimed Warren on social media.

According to leading economists, the Senator’s proposal to forgive student loan debt and introduce tuition-free public colleges would cost over $1.25 trillion over the next decade.
Sen. Warren Unveils ‘Universal Child Care’ Plan, Will Cost $70 BILLION PER YEAR
2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren pulled-back the curtains on her long-promised “Universal Child Care” proposal Tuesday; with analysts confirming the plan would likely cost $70 billion per year.
“Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren proposed a universal child care plan that would limit American families’ expenses to 7 percent of income regardless of how many children they have in care — paid for by a tax on the ultra-wealthy,” writes Bloomberg.
