Matt Drudge, the influential conservative blogger who predicted Donald Trump's nomination and election victory in 2016, thinks Elizabeth Warren is the Democrat to watch in next year's primaries. "It's Elizabeth Warren's nomination to lose," he tweeted Wednesday, sharing a photo of a large crowd at the senator's Monday rally in New York City.

Polls say Joe Biden is still the front-runner, but Drudge isn't the only one talking about Warren's momentum, Mediaite notes. The Warren rally had around 20,000 attendees, according to Fox. Trump, however, was apparently unimpressed: Josh Dawsey, one of the reporters travelling with him Tuesday, tweeted that the president had said "anybody" could get people "standing in the middle of Manhattan in the most densely populated area of the country."
