Elizabeth Warren Wrestles With Sinking Polls

Elizabeth Warren's poll numbers are sinking. There does not seem to be any way to stop Warren's collapse. According to Reuters, the former frontrunner is now faced with a dilemma. Should she continue to talk about Medicare for All, even though it's highly unpopular? Analysts say her campaign is sinking because of her support for Medicare for All. She recently started talking about corporate corruption. However, her supporters worry that shift could end up hurting the Massachusetts senator. Now that Warren has put her $20.5-trillion plan on the table, they want her to try harder to win over doubting voters. Warren does not have much time to turn things around. The Iowa Caucus is less than two-months away. Analysts say if she doesn't come in at least second or third in Iowa her candidacy will be over.
