An unofficial straw poll at the Conservative Political Action Conference this week suggested that attendees see Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., as the Democrat they think Trump would be most likely to defeat in 2020.
According to CNN, the poll taken Thursday and Friday posed the following question to 75 respondees: “Which Democrat considering a run in 2020 do you think Trump would be most likely to defeat?”
From among that small sampling, Warren came first with 22 votes, with Oprah Winfrey coming in second place with 10.
Warren, whose far-left views have led conservatives to believe that she would be unelectable in certain parts of the country, has been a regular punching bag of President Trump — who has given her the nicknames “goofy” and “Pocahontas.”
The latter is a reference to a longstanding controversy about Warren’s claims to have Native American heritage.
