Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who might be weighing a 2020 presidential bid, is more disliked than her state’s Republican governor — even among Democrats! A new poll found Warren more divisive among members of her own party than a Republican.

According to a new WBUR poll of small central Massachusetts towns that voted for President Trump, a vast majority of Democrats viewed Warren as favorable (76 percent), while slightly fewer Democrats had a similar impression of Governor Charlie Baker (71 percent).
