Former First Lady Michelle Obama was just completely humiliated. She has been told ‘no’ publicly and the embarrassing moment is the talk of Washington, DC. Her supporters are stunned.
“A recently-released poll shows over a third of Democrat voters are against Joe Biden picking former first lady Michelle Obama as his running mate, even if she wanted to run on the ticket,” reported Breitbart News this week.
Even so, the poll conducted by CBS/YouGov shows Obama with a solid “65 percent” of support from Democrats — but it is still shocking to see “35 percent” oppose her joining Biden’s ticket. That isn’t a small number by any means.
As far as potential running mates, however, Obama’s support is significantly higher than her nearest competition: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (36%), Sen. Kamala Harris (19%), Stacey Abrams (14%), and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (13%).
Additionally, since the presumptive Democratic nominee has pledged to choose a woman as his running mate, other potential candidates being vetted include Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D-MI) and Rep. Val Demings (D-FL).
But Obama has repeatedly insisted that she isn’t interested in the role — that she doesn’t have a desire to be a political candidate. Time will tell if this is actually the case, given that we should know Biden’s pick in a handful of weeks.
