I saw a story today saying that this last week was the worst of the campaign so far for Elizabeth Warren because of continuing revelations about her purported Cherokee heritage. And yet if you look at the actual poll numbers her favorability ratings are unaffected. And she remains in the same deadlocked race she’s been in for the last couple months.
It’s the kind of mocking, credibility-impugning story I too would have thought would hurt her.
And yet abundant poll data, from multiple pollsters, shows it’s had no effect at all. No change in net favorability, no change in the horse race number and very few voters saying they even care.
