Nearly Half of Dems Want to Drop Biden and Replace Him With Michelle Obama

Nearly Half of Dems Want to Drop Biden and Replace Him With Michelle Obama

New polling says that almost half of Democrats want someone besides President Biden at the top of their party’s 2024 ticket — and former first lady Michelle Obama is their leading choice to replace him!

About 48% of the Democratic voters polled said they approve of the party “finding another candidate to replace Joe Biden before the election in November,” compared to 38% who disapprove, according to the Rasmussen Reports survey released on Monday, Feb. 26.

The former first lady stepped out of a pack of suggested alternatives to the 81-year-old Biden with the support of 21% of respondents. The survey also included Vice President Kamala Harris, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, “none of the above” and “not sure.”

But only 33% of Democrats believe such a ballot shakeup is likely to happen.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) argued in September that Obama could be “parachuted in” at the Democratic National Convention, which will be in the former first lady’s hometown of Chicago, and named the party’s nominee for president in place of Biden.

Obama has repeatedly expressed her desire to remain away from politics.

Biden, the oldest president in US history, trails former President Donald Trump, 77 — the front-runner for the GOP nomination — in several polls of key battleground states but hasn’t given any indication that he plans to step aside and allow another Democrat to run in his stead.

Biden would be 86 by the end of a second term in office, and his allegedly fading cognitive capabilities were noted in special counsel Robert Hur’s scathing report on the president’s classified documents.

California Governor Gavin Newsom, 56, who has already been accused of running a “shadow campaign” for the presidency in case Biden has to exit the contest for health reasons, came in far behind Mrs. Obama with 11% support.

    That’s a sure way to lose our country

    I’m one of those who want MO to replace Biden. MO could easily beat Trump, and I think she would make a great President, especially since she doesn’t want the job.

      I think the world of Michele Obama but her claim to fame for being President is being First Lady, and that does not quite cut it for me. Yes, brilliant academics. Good experience in the workplace but nothing that really quaifies her as President. Might be good, but is green. All I can say is “remember the Alamo. Remember Hillary.”

        Near as I can tell we have not had a “good” president in the last 50 years. Politicians all, and all they really did was expand government and the national debt. I shudder to think what is going to happen when the market finally realizes that the debt is never going to get paid off. So maybe someone totally unqualified for the job is what we need.

    Just like her husband, this woman has no achievements whatsoever. Fewer, even. And THAT is a good reason to put her in the most important job in the world?

    One must be brain dead to believe she would be a good choice. However the democrats already have someone who is brain dead at the helm.

      Rob L: Unlike like you no doubt with your education and accomplishments, the Obama’s are well educated, educated well, and have numerous accomplishments and accolades. For Barrack:

      Columbia University B.A. in political science
      Harvard Law, jdl, civil rights attorney
      First black president of the Harvard Law Review.
      Community Organizer
      Taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School
      Illinois Senator
      US Senator
      President, 2 terms
      Nobel laureate

      There is little doubt that this is one smart, accomplished fellow by any rational measure. Makes you wonder what Rob L is really thinking when he demeans the first black American President who succeeded in so many accomplishments. You may not agree with his politics or policies, but you are denying the truth to say the Obama’s have no accomplishments.

    No! No! No! She is a non-starter with most Indies. Yes Frank is correct that she has academics and workplace experience on her side which is good. But I agree her qualifications seem short. And lets not forget she hated living in the white house, and I do not agree with her statements about white people. August 2020, ““What white folks don’t understand, it’s like that is so telling of how white America views people who are not like them. You know, we don’t exist. And when we do exist, we exist as a threat. And that, that’s exhausting,” Obama continued.” I also disagree with her comment that “White people run from Black people. As we move in the white people move out.” She may be correct about white people moving in while black people move out but its not just about race. Race is the small part of it. The bigger part of it is the fear of violence, social unrest (does Seattle, St. Louis, etc. come to mind?) and the heightened state of drama that seems to be in most black communities. Sorry Michelle, you are wrong on this! In my view, MO is hyper sensitized to race. She makes a good female Al Sharpton, but not a good POTUS. IF you want a good African American female for POTUS, my pick is Condoleeza Rice! Now there is a quality woman for all colors and genders to emulate!!!

    Since when did running for President equal the real House Wives of Chicago?
