The pollsters at FiveThirtyEight are forecasting the number of pledged delegates each candidate will win after every state votes in the Democratic primary. While Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) once led the Democratic field, the FiveThirtyEight forecast now finds that Democratic voters are more likely to nominate nobody at all than they are to nominate Elizabeth Warren.

According to the FiveThirtyEight forecast, Warren has just a one-in-nine (12 percent) chance of winning enough delegates to secure the Democratic Party's presidential nomination. That's slightly worse than the forecast model's odds—one-in-eight, or 13 percent—that no single candidate will win a majority of delegates, an outcome that could trigger a brokered convention in Milwaukee.

...

That was not the only piece of bad news for Warren on the polling front. Monmouth University on Thursday published a poll of registered Democrats in New Hampshire showing a 12-point decline in Warren's support since September, when the poll was last taken. She received 15 percent of the vote, which puts her in fourth place behind Sanders (18 percent), Biden (19 percent), and Buttigieg (20 percent).

Warren once billed herself as the only candidate who could win, but the far-left base of Democratic voters appear to be rallying behind Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) while more moderate Democrats are staying behind former Vice President Joe Biden. 

Elizabeth Warren's polling numbers plummeted after Americans found out that her bold ideas to give everyone free stuff would bankrupt the entire country. Warren previously worked as a bankruptcy attorney so maybe the candidate thinks America can just file some legal documents, the creditors will stop calling and all this bankruptcy stuff will simply fall off America's credit report in seven years.
