Warren Democrat Trends as People Show Support for Elizabeth Warren Despite Huge Super Tuesday Loss

Thousands of people are continuing to pledge their support for Elizabeth Warren as their choice for the Democratic presidential nomination despite hugely disappointing Super Tuesday results.

The term "Warren Democrat" was one of the top trending topics on Twitter early Wednesday morning as social media users continue to support and appreciate Warren despite the race for the nomination looking set to now be between Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders.

In a crushing blow for her campaign, Warren barely registered in most of the 14 elections during Super Tuesday. Even worse, she is forecast to finish third place in her home state of Massachusetts, gaining just 21.2 percent of the votes with 91 percent of precincts reporting at the time of publication.

Despite her crushing results, people on Twitter users are continuing to express their support for Warren.

"I voted for the woman who destroyed the sexist billionaire. I voted for the woman who would destroy the other sexist billionaire. I voted for what I saw in Vegas with my own eyes. Always trust your own eyes. Not the pundits'. Could come back to haunt you. I am a Warren Democrat," tweeted Jason Overstreet.

Fellow Twitter user @jospoke1 wrote, "I'm a Warren Democrat because I believe we should be brave and strive for the greatness we are capable of while fixing the mess and shoring up the weaknesses in our system *45 has exposed. There's no one that could do that better than @ewarren. Today fear won. I'm sad & ashamed."

"Whatever happens, I am a Warren Democrat, and proud of it. I believe in real progressive change, and I believe in her," added writer Jeff Yang.

However, other people are using the trending topic to place further pressure on Warren to stand down from the race, paving a way for her supporters to back fellow progressive candidate Bernie Sanders.

Ahead of Super Tuesday, Warren's campaign manager Roger Lau said the candidate has no intention of dropping out at this stage even if Warren has a bad night, and the team are looking forward to the upcoming results.

"Super Tuesday is the first test in March to amass delegates, but a week later we will be competing in six states, and a week after that another four that represent over 500 delegates up for grabs," Lau wrote in a memo.

"By the time all of California's votes from mail-in ballots are counted, likely in mid-March, we will still only be halfway to the overall number of pledged delegates up for grabs.

"After Wisconsin nearly one-third of the pledged delegates will still be waiting to be elected, and there will be a three-week gap between electing delegates for the first time since voting began. In the road to the nomination, the Wisconsin primary is halftime, and the convention in Milwaukee is the final play.

"Our grassroots campaign is built to compete in every state and territory and ultimately prevail at the national convention in Milwaukee."

Warren's campaign team has been contacted for further comment.
