CNN canceled its upcoming town halls featuring Democrat presidential candidates slated for next week due to the ongoing Senate impeachment trial, the outlet reported on Thursday.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) is probably right that a female candidate doesn’t stand a chance of beating President Donald J. Trump in the general election. That doesn’t mean a woman can’t win the Democratic primary. In fact, for all intents and purposes, a woman has already won the contest and her name isn’t Elizabeth Warren.
It’s Nancy Pelosi.

Thanks to Pelosi’s strategic decision to delay sending the House-approved articles of impeachment to the Senate, Warren doesn’t really have a choice but to drop out. The most recent polling out of the early primary states does not bode well for her chances.
A new WBUR poll published Thursday found Warren in fourth place at 13 percent among likely Democratic voters in New Hampshire. Sanders, meanwhile, had opened up a commanding lead, at 29 percent, which is an improvement of 14 percentage points since December. Unemployed 38-year-old Pete Buttigieg was in second place at 17 percent, while Joe Biden placed third at 14 percent.
The WBUR poll also showed Sanders with a significant advantage in terms of favorability, with 74 percent of respondents expressing a favorable opinion of the elderly socialist, compared to just 60 percent for Warren and 57 percent for Biden.
The most recent voter survey from “the best pollster in Iowa” also found Sanders leading both Warren and Biden, albeit by a smaller margin. National polling, meanwhile, continues to show Warren lagging behind in third place. She is polling at just 14.8 percent nationally, according to the RealClearPolitics polling average, compared to 22 percent for Sanders and 28.7 percent for Biden.
A recent SurveyUSA poll of registered voters nationwide found Sanders outperforming all other Democratic candidates in a hypothetical matchup against President Trump. According to the poll, voters preferred Sanders to Trump by a margin of 52 percent to 43 percent, while Warren edged the incumbent president by a much smaller margin, 48 percent to 45 percent.
Warren’s desperate gambit to improve her standing in the race, which involved the not-so-subtle “leak” of a private conversation in which Sanders allegedly told her he didn’t think a woman could become president, has failed. She should do the right thing by ending her misguided campaign in order to focus on the important work of impeaching Trump in the Senate.
Meanwhile, Biden, the Democratic frontrunner, can hit the campaign trail in Iowa and New Hampshire, where he’ll either lock up the party’s nomination or humiliate himself out of contention, paving the way for a Sanders victory.
Warren is understandably upset by how the Democratic primary has played out. She’s even managed to disappoint Michael Moore, of all people. After her attempt to shiv Bernie didn’t go as planned, Warren has taken to lashing out at voters on the campaign trail. The stress of those endless “selfie” sessions is clearly starting to weigh on her. It’s time for Warren to do the right thing and stop the madness before things get out of hand.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) is running for president promising to cancel student debt, but a father in Iowa argued this week that her policy would be unfair to people who didn’t take out loans.
“My daughter is getting out of school. I saved all my money. She doesn’t have any student loans. Am I going to get any money back?” the man asked Warren after an Iowa campaign event Monday.

“Of course not,” Warren responded.
“So you’re going to pay for people who didn’t save any money, and those of us who did the right thing get screwed,” he said.
Warren told the man her policy would not disadvantage him, but he described how he and his daughter sacrificed to avoid going into debt, while others spent money on cars and vacations.
“My buddy had fun, bought a car, went on vacations. I saved my money,” he said. “He made more than I did. But I worked a double shift, worked extra—my daughter worked since she was 10. So, you’re laughing.”
“No, I’m not,” Warren said.
“Yeah, that’s exactly what you’re doing,” he said. “We did the right thing, and we get screwed.”
Warren told the man she appreciated his time as he walked away.
The Massachusetts senator has proposed tuition-free higher education and student-debt cancellation, which would cost taxpayers an estimated $1.25 trillion. A study by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that free college would require radical tax hikes and leave 86 percent of American households in a worse financial position.

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.) failed to use the gender-neutral term “Latinx” for the first time in seven months, marking a major departure from previous campaign rhetoric.
Warren has consistently used “Latinx” in favor of the gender-specific alternatives “Latino” and “Latina.” The Massachusetts senator mentioned “African-American and Latinx” families on the June debate stage and went on to sell unisex “Latinx with Warren” t-shirts. Warren did not use the term “Latino” on Twitter after that debate.

But Warren bucked the trend Tuesday when she released her “Restoring America’s Promise to Latinos” plan. Warren touted the plan by referring to the “Latino community,” and while the plan uses the term “Latinx” on six occasions, it uses “Latino” more than 70 times.
“Latinx” attempts to escape the use of masculine and feminine noun forms in the Spanish language. Though only 2 percent of America’s Latinos prefer the term, progressive activists began using it as a way to refer to all people of Latin American descent without excluding people who identify as neither male nor female.
The Warren campaign did not respond to a request for comment on her use of “Latino” and whether she plans to continue using “Latinx” throughout her campaign for president.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary added “Latinx” as a word in September 2018, though it noted the term may not “catch on in mainstream use.” Many Latinos have since criticized the gender-neutral phrase as “elitist.”
“I don’t see the point of it when there’s already a word for it, and it’s ‘Latinos,'” South Carolina resident Enrique Salas told NBC News in March.
