Holy mother of hell; Democrat and Native American poser Elizabeth Warren is leading former Vice President Joe Biden in Iowa.

From Fox News:

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., surged ahead of former Vice President Joe Biden in a new poll of likely Iowa Democratic caucus-goers released late Saturday, with Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg slipping into a distant third and fourth, respectively.

The Des Moines Register/CNN/Mediacom poll showed Warren as the first choice of 22 percent of the voters surveyed, while Biden was the first choice of 20 percent of the voters. By comparison, the Register poll in June showed Biden leading with 24 percent support, nine percentage points clear of Warren and eight points clear of Sanders.

J. Ann Selzer, president of pollster Selzer & Co., told the Register the survey represented “the first major shakeup” of the Iowa race, because: “It’s the first time we’ve had someone other than Joe Biden at the top of the leader board.”

Sanders was in third place with 11 percent support, a five percentage-point drop from the Register’s June poll. No other candidate cracked 10 percent of the first-choice vote, with Buttigieg garnering nine percent. That also represents a five percentage-point drop from June.

Warren also had the highest percentage of poll respondents (20 percent) who said she was their second choice in the February caucus. By contrast, Biden and Sanders each garnered 10 percent of the second-choice vote. Warren also had the highest favorability rating of any candidate, with 75 percent of respondents saying they had a very or mostly favorable view of her compared to 66 percent for Biden and 58 percent for Sanders.

“Big whoop! Who cares about Iowa?” you inquisitively ask. 

Allow me to enlighten thee:

The Iowa caucuses is where the voting contest for the presidency kicks off on February 1st, and they serve as an early indication of who might win the nomination at the national conventions and who has little chance of success. They also tend to narrow the field.

In layman’s terms, if Warren is leading in Iowa, the odds are good that she could secure the nomination of the Democrat party to challenge Donald Trump in the 2020 Presidential election.

On the downside, Elizabeth Warren is the antithesis of Trump. On the upside, Hillary Clinton would be SO pissed if Elizabeth Warren became President.
