Matt Drudge Makes Bold Prediction On Democrat Winner Nomination

Published

on

Iconic conservative blogger Matt Drudge on Wednesday announced who he thought was going to be the Democratic nominee in 2020.

Drudge, founder of the news aggregation site The Drudge Report, took to Twitter and shared an image from Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s rally she held in New York City this week, which reportedly had 20,000 attendees.

“It’s Elizabeth Warren’s nomination to lose…” Drudge tweeted.

Last year, Drudge correctly predicted that Democrats would win back the House of Representatives, but overestimated by claiming they would pick up 60 seats instead of the roughly 40 they flipped from Republicans.

However, in February 2016, Drudge predicted early on that Donald Trump would become the GOP nominee.

Warren has picked up momentum in most polls in recent months, but in the latest Fox News poll, she placed third with 16 percent, following former Vice President Joe Biden’s 29 percent and her progressive colleague Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 18 percent.

He posted the Fox News article about his tweet as one of the top stories on his widely popular new aggregation site. Below it, he included a Grabien article of Steve Bannon saying he disagrees.

President Trump’s former chief strategist, Steve Bannon, said he disagrees with Drudge. Appearing Thursday morning on CNBC’s Squawk Box, Bannon said: “I don’t agree with Matt Drudge yet but I think if you look at — and Matt’s got a tremendous sense of news, but if you look at her speech down here at Washington Square Park, which is quite dramatic, it’s really Trump Lite.”

Bannon said she’s tapping into the same popular resentment toward big government corruption that fueled Trump’s rise. If she does capture the nomination, Bannon said, the race will present contrasting forms of nationalism.

“If that’s the case, you’re going to have populist nationalism versus populist socialism,” he said. “She’s clearly defined where the energy is.” (Grabien)

Warren’s RealClearPolitics average shows her second to Biden, with 18.3 percent.

    This is so staged,
    First of all, NY is a Blue state, and NYC is the reason the state goes blue.
    She holds a rally on a a college campus in Washington State Park which is the campus for NYU.
    This is ridiculous, but it’s no wonder because she speaks like a professor. (BTW she is paid with 6 figure speaking fees which is hypocritical as she calls for “free education”. No wonder college and universities are over priced
    Almost none of the attendees are tax paying citizens and in fact NYU campus is hugely attended by foreign students and people that have no voting rights.
    This rally means nothing! Let’s see her get a rally with these numbers in a state which is RED!

  • Doris_Speaks says:

    POOOOH!! Bring her on. She, nor any of the rest of them can beat Trump. And, what does she know about foreign policy?? What do any of the Dems know about it. Even Joe Biden after 8 years as Vice President and a hundred years in congress doesn’t now anything.

  • DiYi says:

    I’m sorry, but how is that a bold prediction? I’ve been saying Warren for about 3 months.

  • FRED says:
