Michelle Obama just gave Donald Trump some really bad news
One question has hovered over the 2020 Presidential election.
Will Michelle Obama jump into the race?
She has an answer to that question and its bad news for Donald Trump.
Rumors constantly float around Washington, D.C. that Michelle Obama will run for President in 2020.
She tries to shoot them down, but Democrats keep insisting she run.
The former First Lady might find it harder to turn down these overtures if she doesn’t have to campaign very hard for the nomination.
And that’s what one brand new poll shows.
Former first lady and former Vice President Joe Biden tied for the Democrats’ favorite 2020 presidential candidate in a poll released on Tuesday.
Twenty-five percent of Democrat voters said that they would either back Obama or Biden for the Democrat nomination, even though neither Democrat has declared their candidacy for president in 2020, according to a Hill-HarrisX poll released on Tuesday.
Several polls had Biden leading the early list of Democrat contenders in the past few weeks. One poll released in February found that Biden would serve as a formidable opponent to President Donald Trump–the survey found that Trump would beat everyone but Biden in a 2020 matchup.
Democrats believe their best chance to defeat Trump is to run an above the fray figure that can recreate the Obama coalition.
The only individual that fits the bill is Michelle Obama.
But she is well-known for hating the campaign trail.
The only way anyone could see her getting in the race is if Democrats hand her the nomination in a cake walk.
This poll makes it clear she would enter the race at the head of the field and her entry may even cause other candidates to drop out and endorse her, allowing the former First Lady to clear the field.
