Elizabeth Warren strives to connect, one voter at a time
As she tries to unseat a senator who rode to victory two years ago in large part based on his everyday-guy likability, Elizabeth Warren is working – one hug, one high-five at a time – to persuade voters that she is one of them, too. She also has to energize the state’s Democratic voters much better than Scott Brown’s 2010 opponent did. At campaign events this month, Warren has been able to rouse her supporters. But the likability gap lingers.
