Elizabeth Warren’s polling numbers have been mostly in the single digits for months now, with just a momentary upward blip. She’s even failed to poll well in her home state of Massachusetts and in neighboring states.

Naturally, she’s pulled out all the stops to try and jumpstart her fizzling campaign among the Democratic base, including proposing bloated trillion dollar plans and jumping on the impeachment bandwagon.
