Elizabeth Warren’s placement in the New Hampshire primary was not only awful, but embarrassing for her and her supporters, considering it happened in her backyard. What happens if Bernie Sanders creams her in Massachusetts on Super Tuesday?

This is not out of the realm of possibility.

Elizabeth Warren neck-and-neck with Bernie Sanders in her home state of Massachusetts, poll finds

Sen. Elizabeth Warren is in a fight to win her home state of Massachusetts, according to a new poll released Friday that shows her down 1 percentage point to national frontrunner Sen. Bernie Sanders in the state’s Democratic presidential primary.

The poll, conducted by YouGov for the University of Massachusetts Lowell Center for Public Opinion, found Warren with support of 20% of likely Democratic primary voters in Massachusetts, trailing Sanders’ 21%.

They are followed by former South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttgieg, 15%, former Vice President Joe Biden, 14%, former New York Mayor Mike Bloomberg, 12%, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, 9%, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, 3%, and businessman Tom Steyer, 2%. Four percent said they were undecided.

The poll, an online survey of 450 voters, was taken from Feb. 12 to Feb. 19 – before Warren’s standout performance in Wednesday’s Democratic debate in Las Vegas. Sanders’ lead is within the poll’s 6.1% margin of error.

Bernie Sanders obviously sees an opening here and he is acting on it. He just announced that he is going to hold a rally in Boston on Saturday.

Challenging Warren On Her Home Turf, Sanders Plans Rallies In Massachusetts Ahead Of Super Tuesday

Sensing an opportunity for a win on Senator Elizabeth Warren’s home field, Vermont Senator Bernie Senator plans to hold rallies in Massachusetts ahead of Super Tuesday, when 14 states and one U.S. territory vote in presidential primaries. According to his campaign, Sanders will rally Friday night in Springfield, and Saturday on Boston Common.

The announcement comes on the heels of a recent poll that found Sanders and Warren in a virtual tie for first place among Democratic primary voters in Massachusetts. According to the survey, conducted by the UMass Lowell Center For Public Opinion, 21% of respondents said they supported Sanders, and 20% said they supported Warren.

The Sanders campaign says that over the past weekend, it hosted more than 60 active volunteer sites across the state, and knocked on more than 50,000 doors.

During the debate in South Carolina last night, Elizabeth Warren went after Michael Bloomberg again, much as she did in Nevada. If she wants to beat Bernie Sanders, you would think she would go after him as well. There was only one real moment where she confronted Bernie and it was pretty weak.

She cautiously reminded viewers how much she and Sanders have in common, but suggested that she is better positioned to pass a progressive agenda. Watch below:

If Warren loses Massachusetts to Bernie Sanders, she should end her campaign that day, and she will have only herself to blame. She never brought the fight to Bernie.
