WaPo: Why You Shouldn’t Underestimate Elizabeth Warren (More Favorable Than Obama, Rubio, Biden) [View all]

Just saw this pop up on Twitter from Alex Wagner.

"But, a new Quinnipiac poll proves why Warren would be formidable in 2016 if she decided to run. Using a feeling thermometer — 0 meaning you feel totally cold about a politician, 100 meaning you feel warmly (aka) strong favorably toward a pol — Quinnipiac tested the majority of major national figures.

Warren finished third — behind only New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (53.1 degrees) and Hillary Clinton (52.1 degrees). She finished ahead of, among others, President Obama, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Vice President Joe Biden."


I know it's not likely, but every day I see more and more about this. At the very least it raises her profile to be Senate leader someday.
