Warren Has Raised $6M Since Iowa, Says Race Is ‘Wide Open’

Elizabeth Warren says she's raised about $6 million from online donors since last week's Iowa caucuses, fueled by people who want to see her stay in the Democratic presidential primary despite an underwhelming performance there and in New Hampshire. ...

Hours later, during a raucous evening rally at a high school gym in Washington’s Virginia suburbs, Warren didn’t seem like a candidate worried about leaving the race. The state is one of more than a dozen voting on "Super Tuesday" on March 3.

In Virginia on Thursday, Warren’s campaign said the crowd featured more than 4,000 people, many of whom were funneled into overflow rooms. Attendees were fired up and so was Warren. She hit her standard themes of creating “structural change” to remake America’s political and economic system but did so with a harder edge than usual, saying, “Rich people don’t want to pay taxes” and “If you don’t attack the corruption head-on, you can’t do anything else,” both drawing wild applause.

It was a stark contrast from the last time she addressed supporters, shortly after the New Hampshire polls closed Tuesday night. That’s when she earnestly called Sanders and Buttigieg “great people,” but insisted she could best unite Democrats.

Looking to rebound, Warren’s campaign has increased the number of national television appearances she’s done in recent weeks, trying to contrast the perception that a New Hampshire loss raises questions about where Warren might actually win.

The Hill
Poll: Bloomberg, Sanders neck-and-neck in Virginia

Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) are running neck-and-neck for the top spot in Virginia’s upcoming Democratic presidential primary, according to a Monmouth University survey released early Tuesday.

The poll shows Bloomberg and Sanders tied in the Old Dominion at 22 percent, followed by former Vice President Joe Biden at 18 percent. Only one other candidate, former South Bend, Ind,. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, registered double-digit support in the commonwealth at 11 percent.

The poll suggests that Bloomberg has made significant inroads in Virginia, which holds its Democratic primary on Super Tuesday, despite his relatively late entrance into the presidential race. ...

Still, the Monmouth poll shows many likely Virginia Democratic primary voters are not firmly committed to a particular candidate. Only 25 percent of respondents said that were certain of whom they would vote for in the March 3 primary, while 52 percent said they could still change their mind.

The poll also suggests that the results of the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary, the first two nominating contests, had little impact on how voters in Virginia see the presidential race.

Only 18 percent said they took a second look at the candidates after those states voted this month. Of those respondents, only 7 percent said they changed their mind about whom they would support.

Roanoke College poll shows Democratic candidates lead Trump in Virginia

Just a week from Super Tuesday, when Virginians will vote for a Democratic presidential candidate, a new poll from Roanoke College shows that each of the contenders leads President Donald Trump in the state.

However, the poll shows that most of the candidates named in the interview were not viewed much more favorably than Trump.

The interview named Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders; former Vice President Joe Biden; Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren; former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg; former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg; and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar. All hold a lead over Trump of between 6 and 9 percentage points.

Only Buttigieg and Klobuchar had a higher percentage of favorable than unfavorable ratings.

Virginia is one of 14 states voting March 3 on Super Tuesday. In Virginia, 124 delegates are at stake.
