At Warren’s largest rally to date, the Democratic senator from Massachusetts denounced corruption of all kinds, from lobbyists’ political campaign contributions to the lack of transparency about the finances of the sitting president, whom she dubbed “corruption in the flesh.” “Corruption has broken our economy, and corruption is breaking our democracy,” Warren, wearing a bright purple blazer, told the crowd, which numbered somewhere between the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation’s estimate of 8,000 to 10,000 and the Warren campaign’s estimate of 20,000.
The Warren supporters we spoke to said that her populist political ideology and emphasis on major societal change could give her an edge over Trump, who campaigned on similarly anti-establishment grounds in 2016.
Another Warren supporter, Idrid Mignott, 57, who works in non-profit fundraising, said he thinks Warren’s message of change would appeal to people who voted for Trump in 2016 but did not see his promises fulfilled. “A lot of people elected Trump on the idea of big structural change,” he said. “Elizabeth Warren is for big structural change. She’s about really draining the swamp.”
