Warren would 'melt' under pressure, says Mass. activist

Elizabeth Warren pointingA Massachusetts-based pro-family activist admits he's somewhat surprised that Senator Elizabeth Warren is surging in the polls – because he is convinced she's not qualified to be in the Oval Office.

In a compilation of Democratic polls by RealClearPolitics, Warren – now in her second term representing Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate – has displaced second-place Bernie Sanders for the 2020 presidential nomination. Warren has just over 17 percent support among Democratic voters, with Senator Sanders (I-Vermont) tallying at 16 percent. Former Vice President Joe Biden continues to lead with almost 30.5 percent support. Everyone else in the Democratic field is in single digits.

Brian Camenker is president of MassResistance and a staunch critic of Warren. He doesn't think she is qualified to be president – but the poll numbers surprise him "just a little bit."

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)"I think a lot of conservatives don't quite understand the kind of people who support her," he tells OneNewsNow. "If you ever talk to them about any political issue, they're completely disconnected from reality. It's just amazing how many of those kinds of people there are out there."

According to Camenker, Warren's radical views are never challenged. "The press never asks her hard questions," says the activist. "She never has to explain anything; she's never really put on the spot – and the few times that she has been, she's like AOC: she can't really explain anything very well."

So Camenker thinks Trump would love have Warren running against him in the general election. "As soon as she starts having to actually answer questions and debate on a national stage, she'll melt," he states. "She's terrible … she's horrible. She can't take that kind of pressure at all."

"AOC" is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a first-term Democratic congresswoman from New York who, among other things, pushes a pro-environmentalist "Green New Deal" and a $15/hour minimum wage hike with no apparent concept of the impact of such proposals or how they would be paid for.
