LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — Anna Stein, 44, doesn’t have a preferred presidential candidate yet for the 2020 Democratic nomination. But one thing is certain, she says: Elizabeth Warren’s handling of her Native American ancestry claims will not factor into her decision.
A.J. McConnell, 70, suspects he’ll vote for Kamala Harris, the California senator, for president. But he thinks the criticism over Ms. Warren describing herself as Native American for years is unfair, because he also had family members who once identified as Native Americans.
Bobbie Pate, 69, arrived at a Warren rally in northern Georgia on Saturday a little worried that Ms. Warren would mention the ancestry issue. Even acknowledging it would give credence to President Trump’s “racist attacks” on Ms. Warren, the Massachusetts senator she said. (Mr. Trump routinely slurs her as “Pocahontas.”)
“Everybody makes mistakes,” Ms. Pate said of Ms. Warren’s bumpy handling of her ancestry. “But it’s small potatoes compared to what Trump had done.”
In interviews over the last month with about three dozen Democratic voters, many in early primary states, almost all of them expressed far more interest in Ms. Warren’s policy ideas than her ancestry and said that they were exhausted or uninterested by the story line. They described it as overblown, reflecting a disconnect between voters in the party’s base and some political elites, media commentators and conservatives who have been preoccupied with the issue.

“Right now is a time to listen to ideas,” said Holly Sauers, a staunch Democrat and resident of Charleston, S.C. “That’s what we’re focused on.”
Among these voters, who were mostly white and black Democrats who acknowledged their own misunderstandings about Native American communities and history, Ms. Warren is not a perpetrator of harm, but a victim of a Washington culture that delights in any scandal among politicians — and particularly elected officials who are women.
Citing the 2016 defeat of Hillary Clinton, the first woman to be nominated for president from either major party, many Democrats — including those not predisposed to Ms. Warren — expressed particular protectiveness of their candidates this cycle. That instinct has extended not only to Ms. Warren, but also to other Democratic presidential candidates such as Senator Harris, who has faced questions about her own views, and more recently Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, who has been accused of sharply criticizing some of her own staff members.
“This time, we don’t want to focus on the negativity,” said Ms. Stein, who attended Ms. Harris’s rally on Friday in Charleston. She said she felt that the talk of Ms. Warren’s Native ancestry was driven by Mr. Trump.
He said though the ancestry issue had been largely discussed as a political problem, he hoped that its main impact was educational, and that more people learned about the thorniness of claiming Native ancestry without being a member of a tribe. Mr. Noisecat also acknowledged that his willingness to forgive Ms. Warren may not be universal.
“She definitely made a mistake,” he added.
María Urbina, the national political director of the progressive group Indivisible, said she and other liberal leaders were encouraged by Ms. Warren’s decision to apologize. Going forward, Ms. Urbina said she expected liberal activists to take their cues from Native leaders on whether Ms. Warren had adequately addressed their concerns.
“Native leaders and native people should be the ones to affirm — or not affirm — whether her record shows if she’s been an ally,” Ms. Urbina said. “That’s absolutely important.”
On the campaign trail, there have been relatively large and enthusiastic crowds for Ms. Warren so far, including in states like Georgia and Nevada that are far away from her northeastern base. At every event, she has also held a lottery where questions are drawn at random to answer; she has been asked just more than 100 questions so far, according to her campaign, and two have been about her ancestry.
This does not surprise Neera Tanden, the president of Center for American Progress, a liberal nonprofit group. Ms. Tanden, a former adviser to Mrs. Clinton, said she expected Democrats to stay away from criticizing their own during this cycle.
“There’s a strong belief among Hillary voters that the negativity during the primary hurt her during the general,” Ms. Tanden said. “And people do not want to go through that again.”
This could change, of course, if Ms. Warren were to ascend to the Democratic nomination and went head-to-head with Mr. Trump while coming under intense scrutiny across the political spectrum.
At her Georgia campaign appearance, a group of conservative protesters gathered across the street from the Central Gwinnett High School gymnasium in Lawrenceville, where Ms. Warren was speaking. “1/1024th chance of winning,” read one sign, in reference to the small portion of Native American ancestry Ms. Warren’s DNA test revealed she could have. During the event, too, one heckler loudly accused her of lying; Ms. Warren brushed aside the comments and went on with her remarks.
Jerald Joseph, a 72-year-old Georgia resident, was dismissive of the criticism of Ms. Warren, saying he thinks Mr. Trump attacks her only because “he’s afraid of her.”
“This is what he does, but it’s what’s in the heart that counts,” Mr. Joseph said. “I don’t think she lied. And in the end, we’re all the same and if her values are contrary to Trump, that’s what matters.”B:
