If Warren is going to endorse Bernie it will be Monday, the 8th. This would be a big strategy move similar to that of Joe Biden’s surge right before Super Tuesday. Except I predict a Warren endorsement would change the entire nomination in favor of Bernie in a way that Biden could never surpass.
When Buttigieg and Klobachar dropped out and endorsed Biden, along with O’Rourke, many people said they saw the surge in Biden’s support that would follow. I wasn’t one of those people. Now I am prepared for quick shifts from each campaign and have been keeping my eyes on the news for clues to what is going to happen next.
When Warren suspended her campaign on Wednesday she made millions of her supporters lament. I also felt weary because again another voice had been pushed out. The big question for the news, Warren supporters, and the remaining three candidates, was who would Warren endorse?
I think I have the answer based on my observations of headlines, and that is she will endorse Bernie on Monday.
Day-by-day breakdown suggesting a Warren endorsement:
March 4th: Warren couldn’t endorse right away on Wednesday because that would leave to much time from her very important endorsement until the next primary on the 10th. This left everyone in a mass of speculation. A perfect strategy to keep the media and everyone guessing. (SEE 1:32 in video)
March 5th: Ady Barkan, a Warren supporter, told Bernie he was all in for him now.

March 6th: On Democracy Now, Raquel Willis endorsed Bernie (SEE 12:10 in video). Willis is a major Warren surrogate. I should add that Willis had her reservations about Bernie and especially the way his campaign has dealt with negatives comments coming from his supporters, but even so she did endorse him.
March 7th: Two things happened on the 7th. First Warren tweeted a video and a message to fight only righteous fights. Later that night, Warren appeared on Saturday Night Live. At first I was like, why is she on SNL when she could be doing more things to fight for justice. Then I realized that being on SNL and on TikTok kept her and her ended campaign still very much alive.
March 8th: The media is talking about two important endorsement. One from Kamala Harris, who is endorsing Biden. And one from Jesse Jackson, who is endorsing Bernie. Now everyone is wondering when and who will Warren endorse?
Do you think Warren will endorse Bernie?
