Will Elizabeth Warren’s Silence on the Patriots Super Bowl Victory Cost Her New Hampshire in 2020?

The New England Patriots continued to celebrate their Super Bowl victory with a parade in Boston on Tuesday, which is expected to attract over a million people and still Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has not congratulated the team, a move that might come back to haunt her in 2020.

NTK Network reported yesterday that Warren, who represents the state that the Patriots call home, had not congratulated the team on their most recent Super Bowl victory.

It’s been over a day and a half since the Patriots claimed their record-tying sixth Super Bowl victory (the Pittsburgh Steelers already held that title with six of their own) and Warren has been actively using social media to attack former representatives, Howard Schultz, President Trump, and others.

Might Warren never congratulate the Patriots on their Super Bowl victory? And would that end up being costly for Warren’s presidential ambitions?

The Boston Globe pointed out on Monday that Warren’s silence could be because the “Pats are universally hated outside New England, especially on the left. Warren and her handlers are all too aware of that, so she can’t even own up to being a Pats fan.”

According to a CBS News poll conducted before the Super Bowl, only 27 percent of Americans said they wanted the Patriots to win the Super Bowl.

However, according to an analysis by The Score, the overwhelming majority of New Englanders, including residents of the first in the nation primary state of New Hampshire, were pulling for the Patriots in Super Bowl LIII.

By comparison, a recent University of New Hampshire poll showed that only 17 percent of New Hampshire’s Democrats were supporting Warren in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary, putting her in third place behind former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).

During the 2016 Republican presidential primary in New Hampshire, Donald Trump often touted his relationship with Patriots owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick, and quarterback Tom Brady while campaigning in the Granite State.

Trump ended up winning the New Hampshire primary, which helped to propel him to capturing the Republican nomination and eventually the White House.

So, will Warren’s silence on the Patriots Super Bowl victory hurt her in the 2020 Democratic primary in New Hampshire? Only time will tell, but if the Patriots win another Super Bowl next year and Warren is quick to congratulate them, it’s probably because she finds herself trailing in the polls.
