Better polling means sharper scrutiny. Is Warren ready?

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Elizabeth Warren’s rapid rise in presidential primary polls is being accompanied by heightened scrutiny and criticism, from both President Donald Trump and her Democratic opponents.

Her political allies and foes alike say Warren has appropriately sharp elbows and isn’t afraid to throw them when the occasion calls for it. It likely will during the primary and in Twitter combat with Trump.

The latest examples came this week, when Warren was forced to defend a critical portion of the biographical story she tells on the campaign trail. And a top Democratic challenger suggested her health care plan could mean “jamming half of the American people.”

With less than four months until the first votes in the Democratic nominating process are cast, Warren can anticipate such criticisms will sharpen and accelerate.
