Elizabeth Warren Scaring The Bejesus Out Of Trump Campaign Now

And now, according to a report from Politico, the Trump campaign is now scrambling and panicking and... stalking her?

Trump aides and their allies at the Republican National Committee, who initially believed their money and manpower were better focused elsewhere, are digging up opposition research, deploying camera-wielding trackers, and preparing to brand Warren as a liberal extremist. The reassessment of Warren, confirmed in conversations with more than a half-dozen Trump advisers, reflects the volatility of the massive Democratic primary and how the reelection campaign is reacting to it.
Of course, Warren has already transcended the biggest thing they had on her, so it's not clear what they think following her around with a camera is going to do to help them. What are they gonna dig up? That she wants even MORE awesome things for America?

The Trump camp is quite scared that Warren may kick his ass when it comes to winning over working class voters, probably because her policies would actually help them.

Campaign pollster John McLaughlin has sounded the alarm internally, stressing that Warren's attacks on Trump threaten to undercut his support from the working-class voters who propelled him to the presidency.

"Although our own early published polls and internal polls discounted Elizabeth Warren, her recent momentum in May and June in national and early caucus and primary states into a strong second place to a flat Joe Biden is a cause for our campaign's attention," McLaughlin wrote in a text message to POLITICO.

"Sen. Warren's attacks on President Trump's policies need to be rebutted," McLaughlin added. "We can't just allow her to continue to attack the President in key states like Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and elsewhere."

Substance, facts and 'a plan for that' are like kryptonite to Trump and his ilk

When it comes to being faced with facts Trump staffers be like:

8. All she has to say is that she believed her family and they weren't lying.

 

It's honestly a pretty weak attack unless you're completely dumb...

2. I watched the IN Warren townhall with Hayes

 

Hayes had some of the attendees on stage with Warren to ask her questions. Most of them were Trump voters or supporters. What should scare Trump is the white, working class woman who'd always voted for Dems, but voted for Trump in 2016. Can't recall what she asked Warren, but after hearing what Warren had to say, she was absolutely beaming. She could have held up a sign that said, I'm voting for her. These are the voters Trump desperately needs to hold, but Warren's economic message resonates with them - just like Trump's did, except she can back her message up with well-thought out policy proposals.

3. Warren is unlikely to win but....

 

Trump is most vulnerable to those that stand by their beliefs. Most candidates will look for a way out under scrutiny and he counts on that.

5. Warren's coming up. And she's coming from behind the frontrunner.

 

That's a pretty good place to be!

It's also pretty darn good that her policies and her energy are so THERE and even her humor is welcome (the endearing exasperated kind where she's like: "Wake up America, we have a country to fix! This isn't extreme, it's practical, and let's go!"

Sorry, but there's nothing "inevitable" about Biden. Being white male is no longer considered a "skill set." Having kick-ass policies are what counts now. Doesn't matter what flavor ice cream you eat.

10. You are overestimating policy

 

You can tell by the people that actually get elected.

11. You need to read Warren's body language.

 

It indicates she knows she's onto something. And she knows it deeply. She is psyched by thinking through how things work economically, sociologically, etc. Then she shares her enthusiasm with the public. There are enough bright opinion leaders who are looking at her policies, deem them reasonable, and then THEY share their enthusiasm with the public. It's a cascade effect. It's pretty much how things work in the spreading of ideas, memes, etc.

Early information theorists believed there was simply a one-to-many transfer of ideas. Now we know there's a one-to-a-few-to-a-few-more-to-many. Since the advent of radio and television there's an added layer of one-to-many. But you need both layers to catalyze a thriving political shift. Trump only has the one-to-his-base. Warren has the opinion leaders AND a growing sea of well-wishers.

And her being female adds an element of pop culture novelty and excitement not to mention the "justice effect." When you KNOW women have been treated like 2nd class citizens for way too long (and not everybody gets this, but enough do), then there's added excitement that RELIEF is coming.

Andrew Yang and Buttigieg have similar dynamics working on their behalf, but Warren has the name recognition. She's also got that damn Harvard crowd secretely routing for her. Harvard's way over-rated but if it helps to get Elizabeth into the Whitehouse I'm down with that.

(Thank you!)

12. ..... and now Warren has the added charisma of cornering the brand of deep policy candidate

 

Even if people skip over her actual policies (which are quite good), they unconsciously like her for soearheading the "policy girlscout" brand. Others are now trying to package their own (quite good) ideas in the same fashion, but Warren has cornered the market.

I kind of feel sorry for all the other brilliant and well-meaning candidates. But if Warren has the edge, and we have to pluck a spoiled rotten rich boy out of Washington, so be it. Besides..... wait for it.... I LOVE HER POLICIES!!!

4. For a long time, I did not care for Elizabeth Warren. However...

 

...the more I see and hear from her, the more I like her. She first got me interested when I watched her tell her life story -- single mom, trying to get through school, take care of the kids and find an affordable babysitter. Very worthy person with great ideas.

Been there, done that myself.

13. Warren's many strengths radiate- conviction, smarts, humanity,

 

experience and more. And her energy and determination are excellent qualities.
