    Could Elizabeth Warren Win The General Election For President?
    probably not. and neither, unfortunately, could Bernie Sanders. and if some perfect storm happened and either of them was elected president, our gerrymandered political ecosystem would produce a congress that would ensure that nothing gets done other than legislative constipation.

    I voted Other, as in I sure hope we wouldn't, but hey, we have voters in this country who can't figure out how to use a ballot correctly.

    she can't win in the primaries, let alone the general.


    if she drastically and substantially changes her messages, she might have a shot... but that is unlikely to happen

    Considering the current sad lot of GOP front-runners, I think anyone could win against them.

    It's possible but she's got problems. Barring a dramatic turn in electoral politics, you have a dominant Republican presence across the country and an exhausted Democratic Party that is increasingly becoming unsure of itself. Most of this is a natural drain on any party who has held executive office for two terms, some of it is developing internal party rifts. Her other problem is a displayed weakness in being able to cope with this political opposition having solid majorities.

    That being said, Warren hasn't done anything dramatically bad like any previous primary contenders and has a growing following.

    If you believe being ideological leads to electoral victory in the face of a rapidly growing and competent opposition, you will think this helps you.

    I say, however, that Republicans who were angry at McCain for supposedly being too weak of a conservative were deluding themselves with the idea that they could win by being more ideological under conditions Democrats now find themselves in.

    But you know, liberals have as much difficulty with reality as conservatives.

    It's a moot question. She isn't going to run. she has stated that emphatically many times.

    And I think she's way too left leaning for the moderates. She's like Sarah Palin, only tipping the opposite direction and not as attractive.

    We certainly know her from her policies and positions, but until (if) she goes into campaign mode it's probably too early to tell how she'll appeal to the middle. Outside of campaign mode she's obviously not currently a contender.

    With any luck, moderates will remember that they're electing a President and not Miss America during the swimsuit competition.

    Re: Could Elizabeth Warren Win The General Election For President?

    If we assume that she is the Democrat's nominee, then she'll get all the liberals/progressives/Democrats to vote for her and all the conservatives/libertarians/Republicans to vote against her. That leaves all the fence-sitting moderates and self-proclaimed independents. Now this bunch already got burned when they got sucked in by Obama. Does anyone really think they'll let themselves get sucked in again...by another left-wing Democrat?

    I don't think so.

    As a matter of fact, ANY Democratic nominee will run into this same problem. That's why the Republicans are going to win the 2016 Presidential election.
