    And sexism.  Just IMO, of course.  I have no empirical data.

      is due to Warren not gelling with the vast majority of the nation's voting block, as it currently views issues.

      Elizabeth herself won't be as Far Left in 4 years as you all want her to be.

      is probably a good chunk, yes, but do bear in mind that presidential elections require a lot of votes in places very different from MA or so on. I have no idea how Warren would do in, say, Ohio, though I think it would be damned interesting to see her frame a left-populist message there.

      Even for me to vote for her, though, I would have to understand a lot more about her ideas on things like foreign policy, etc. Being a Senator can allow you to specialize to a degree; being a President is all over the place, you have to be an international figure as well as a domestic one.
