Things are just not working out for the Elizabeth Warren campaign.
She lost in Iowa, she came in fifth in New Hampshire, and now she has lost again.
Warren took fourth place in Nevada.
Even sleepy Joe Biden beat her!
This is just not good news for her.

Some people thought her performance at the Nevada debate would help her. It didn’t.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Nevada debate win does little to help Elizabeth Warren in caucus voting
Elizabeth Warren’s Nevada debate performance may have breathed new life into her 2020 Democratic presidential campaign, but her bid still hangs in the balance.
Warren, 70, earned 12% of Nevada’s county convention delegates in Saturday’s caucuses, with 4% of precincts reporting. While the final vote tally and national delegate count are still being finalized, that showing ranks her in fourth place — well behind Nevada winner and 2020 front-runner Bernie Sanders, 78, with 45%.
The Massachusetts senator, who was polling in fourth position ahead of the race’s third contest, drew the starkest contrasts between herself and Michael Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor who she described as an “arrogant billionaire,” during the Nevada debate.
Although political observers eagerly anticipate another matchup between Warren and Bloomberg during Tuesday’s debate ahead of the South Carolina primary next Saturday, Nevada’s results suggest she would have benefited from distinguishing herself more from Joe Biden, 77, and Pete Buttigieg, 38, since she rarely criticizes ideological ally Sanders.
Nevada was always going to be a challenge for the former Harvard Law School professor and consumer advocate given her struggles to appeal to large swaths of minority Democrats, most evident in public opinion surveys put in the field in South Carolina.
How much longer will Warren hang on?
If she doesn’t clean up on Super Tuesday, probably not long at all.
