If President Biden‘s approval doesn’t rebound soon, the Democrats may try to replace him with former First Lady Michelle Obama. That’s according to an article in the New York Post.
New York Post columnist Cindy Adams reports that former President Barack Obama, is polling donors to get their thoughts.
Obama’s team has sent surveys to some of the big donors inside the Democratic Party, asking for their views.
But the Post says the schedule to replace Biden is no longer in the summer, but the timeline has moved up between March and May of this year.
Adams warned in a piece published Wednesday that Americans shouldn’t be shocked if Michelle Obama “sneaks her way into the 2024 race.”
The rumor about Michelle Obama occurred after her husband Barack met with Biden in December of last year, where the the Wall Street Journal reported that Obama is among those on the left who fear a return of Trump to the presidency.
“If Michelle Obama launches a candidacy for the 2024 presidential election, “it’s a whole new ballgame,” said former Fox TV host and current Sirius XM radio host Megyn Kelly.
On her radio show, Kelly said Michelle Obama is more talented than Joe Biden is politically.
“Whether it works this time, as a pundit, I remain skeptical,” said Kelly.
In September of 2023, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex) said he believed Michelle Obama could be “parachuted in” at the Democratic National Convention this August and at the last moment, she would save the day.
Still, the speculation of Biden running this year remains a hot topic on talk radio. Biden’s advisers say it’s a guarantee he is running, but others have their doubts.
JPMorgan strategist Michael Cembalest listed his list of “Ten Surprises” for 2024, and one of those was Biden will not run for re-election.
