Michelle Obama Reveals If She’s Replacing Biden

Despite being a top choice among potential Democratic presidential candidates, Michelle Obama has once again reiterated that she will not run for president. A recent Reuters/Ipsos survey revealed that if Joe Biden were to step aside, Michelle Obama would be the most likely candidate to defeat former President Donald Trump, with a projected 50 to 39 percent victory margin over him.



However, the poll also showed that other potential Democratic contenders would not fare as well against Trump in hypothetical matchups. Vice President Kamala Harris would narrowly trail Trump by one percentage point (43 to 42 percent), while figures like California Governor Gavin Newsom (42 to 39 percent), Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (41 to 36 percent), Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear (40 to 36 percent), and Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker (40 to 34 percent) would all fall behind Trump.

Despite favorable polling, Michelle Obama’s communications director, Crystal Carson, reaffirmed to Newsweek that the former First Lady is not interested in pursuing a presidential run. Carson emphasized that Michelle Obama has consistently stated she will not seek the presidency.

This stance aligns with earlier statements made to NBC News, where Michelle Obama’s office expressed support for President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election campaign. However, reports suggest Michelle Obama’s reluctance to actively campaign for Biden stems from her disapproval of how the Biden family handled the divorce of Kathleen Buhle, Hunter Biden’s first wife.
