Democratic Party presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has impressed many American voters with her clear-eyed focus on policy since declaring her 2020 candidacy, particularly with regard to education and tax.

With conviction and zeal, the veteran Massachusetts senator has laid out plans to tackle student debt, tax Wall Street and introduce universal healthcare.

From involving the US military in the fight against climate change to the federal manufacture of essential medication like insulin, her ideas - often explained in meticulous detail on her Medium page - are bold and carefully thought through.

Last week, she made headlines by refusing to appear at a town hall event with Fox News because Donald Trump's favourite broadcaster is, she said, a "hate-for-profit racket that gives a megaphone to racists and conspiracists".

She also called out Alabama's abortion ban and Republican efforts to repeal the historic protections of Roe vs Wade in no uncertain terms.

The former Harvard law professor has certainly been busy, with admirers of her industry and foresight taking to Twitter to promote the hashtag #SheHasAPlan.

Comedian Ashley Nicole Black, a contributor to Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, was so taken with Warren's reputation as a problem-solver she wondered aloud whether the candidate could resolve her romantic travails.

Clearly not expecting a reply, her mind was blown when she got one.

The candidate really does have a plan for everything, it seems.

Producing warm little moments like this will be key to ensuring her message is heard, vital if she is to cut down into the considerable lead built up at the polls by front-runners Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden.
