After a dismal showing on Super Tuesday, it’s clear that Elizabeth Warren’s presidential campaign is going nowhere fast.
As she faces increasing pressure to drop out, she is considering her options.

Elizabeth Warren Assessing Candidacy After Super Tuesday Rout
Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren is assessing the future of her candidacy, her campaign manager said Wednesday, after a dismal performance on Super Tuesday stripped her of any path to the nomination.
“Last night, we fell short of viability goals and projections and we are disappointed in the results,” Roger Lau said in an all-staff email Wednesday, according to a copy obtained by Bloomberg News.
Warren was unable to do better than third place in any of the 14 states that held primaries on Super Tuesday, including in her home state of Massachusetts.
As final Super Tuesday results were coming in, she had garnered just 41 delegates, compared with 357 for Joe Biden and 306 for Bernie Sanders. Warren had earlier failed to break through in any of the first four primaries.
Warren is going to take the next few days “to think through the right way to continue this fight,” Lau said. “This decision is her in hands, and it’s important that she has the time and space to consider what comes next.”
Warren is reportedly talking to both the Sanders and Biden campaigns:

Elizabeth Warren is reportedly in negotiations with Biden and Sanders about her future in the race,
her scripted departure,
and which campaign can give the best incentives for her endorsement.
This highlights her inauthentic nature.
She’s a total fraud.

She is going to take heat no matter who she decides to back.
