One piece of paper is the smoking gun that proves Michelle Obama will replace Joe Biden
Tara Reade’s credible allegations of sexual assault against Joe Biden threw the Presidential campaign into chaos.
Many Democrats wondered if it would be possible to swap out Joe Biden for another nominee.
And now one piece of paper is the smoking gun that proves Michelle Obama will replace Joe Biden.
A recent Morning Consult Poll found that after watching Joe Biden deny Tara Reade’s allegations during a MSNBC interview 26 percent of Democrat voters wanted to replace him as the nominee.
This feeling was strongest among young voters and Bernie Sanders supporters.
“Support for replacing Biden atop the ticket was driven by the party’s youngest voters, a group that mostly backed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the Democratic primary and is more likely to view the former vice president with skepticism. Forty percent of Democrats under the age of 45 said the party should pick a different nominee, compared to 15 percent of those ages 45 and older,” Morning Consult wrote about their poll’s findings.
As Tara Reade’s allegations became public and gained traction, the “The Committee to Draft Michelle” filed paperwork with the Federal Elections Commission.
The group claimed their goal was to build public support for Joe Biden to pick Michelle Obama as his running mate.
“The aim of this campaign is to build on the substantial grassroots support for a potential Michelle Obama candidacy and help garner media attention for a vice presidential nominee who has the power to beat Donald Trump,” the memo read.
But as Reade’s allegations depress enthusiasm among Democrats for Joe Biden, the news that a group formed to draft Michelle Obama to the ticket could be seen as front group to eventually replace Joe Biden as the Presidential nominee.
