(Newser) – Elizabeth Warren didn't see the results she wanted in Iowa, New Hampshire, and Nevada, and it remains to be seen how she'll fare in the South Carolina primary on Saturday, though it doesn't look promising there, either. With Super Tuesday coming up in a few days, Warren's home state, Massachusetts, could offer her a respite from the political pummeling and keep her in the race—but a new poll sounds yet another warning shot for the embattled senator.

  • Home state: A WBUR survey conducted Feb. 23-26 of 426 likely Democratic primary voters in the Bay State showed 25% of the respondents had Bernie Sanders, not Warren, as their first choice. Warren came in second, with 17%, followed by Pete Buttigieg at 14%, Michael Bloomberg at 13%, and Joe Biden at 9% (all with a 4.9% margin of error).
  • Another boost for Biden: On the heels of winning the coveted endorsement of South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the former VP now has another notch of support: that of Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine, who offered his official thumbs-up for Biden on Friday. "It is sad to have a president who no one holds up as a role model for America's kids," Kaine said in a statement to the Washington Post. "By contrast, Joe Biden has exemplary heart, character, and experience. ... He reminds me of Harry S. Truman."
