Far-left Senator Elizabeth Warren topped former Vice President Joe Biden in a recent national survey; solidifying her status as a top-tier candidate and potential frontrunner just months before voters head to the polls.
“Twenty-seven percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents polled by Quinnipiac University said they favor Warren, according to a new poll released Wednesday morning. Twenty-five percent said they prefer former Vice President Joe Biden,” reports Politico. “Although Warren’s edge falls within the survey’s margin of error, Biden’s formidable lead over the rest of the field has crumbled since the last Quinnipiac national poll in August, which showed him with 32 percent support and Warren with 19 percent support.”
“The latest survey reinforces other recent public polling showing Warren and Biden separating from their fellow contenders in the Democratic presidential race,” adds the website.
“After trailing Biden by double digits since March in the race for the Democratic nomination, Warren catches Biden,” writes the poll. “We now have a race with two candidates at the top of the field, and they’re leaving the rest of the pack behind.”

BACK TO THE USSR! Elizabeth Warren Proposes ‘Department of Economic Development’ to Regulate Economy
Rising Democratic hopeful Elizabeth Warren vowed to promote “Economic Patriotism” in a new campaign ad this week; proposing the creation of a “Department of Economic Development” to regulate large corporations.
“A lot of giant companies refer to themselves as ‘American.’ But let’s face it, they only have one real loyalty: Their shareholders. A Warren administration will halt the hollowing out of American cities and create good American jobs. Here’s how,” she posted on social media.

“They have no loyalty or allegiance to America. Levi’s blue jeans? Only two percent of their factories are here in America,” Warren said. “The maker of the famous No.2 pencil — they make most of those pencils in China and Mexico. And General Electric — they recently shipped jobs from Wisconsin, across the border to Canada.”
“If they can close up an American factory and ship jobs overseas to save a nickel, that is exactly what they’ll do,” she continued. “In a Warren administration, government policy will support American workers. I call it ‘Economic Patriotism.'”
“This new agency will have a single mission,” she added, referring to the Department of Economic Development. “Defend and create American jobs. And we’ll direct the new agency to use aggressive new tools… [and] we’ll use them to boost American workers.”
