71% of donations to Elizabeth Warren came from people who do not live in Massachusetts.
The Associated Press has published an article calling Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) a “fundraising powerhouse for Democrats,” but when you look closer at where Warren is raising money, the Massachusetts Senator seems to have some major problems in her home state.
The article touts how Warren, “started 2017 with $4.8 million in her campaign account, the biggest piggybank of any Senate Democrat facing voters next year.”
While Warren’s $4.8 million in the bank is an impressive number, it should be noted that Warren received just over $100,000, or roughly 28 percent, from her home state of Massachusetts. With the vast majority of Warren’s donations coming from out of state, it begs the question whether she has lost support from home state donors.
Making matters worse for Warren’s 2018 hopes is a WBUR poll conducted in January, which “shows that 46 percent of Massachusetts voters think it’s time for someone else to have a shot at the Senate.”
“It’s not a great place to start for her, but she still would be the favorite at this point,” said MassINC Polling Group President Steve Koczela, who conducted the poll with public radio station WBUR.
This low in-state fundraising number tied with recent polling in Massachusetts could spell trouble for Warren’s chances in 2018.
