Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, February 23, 2019

Former first lady Michelle Obama tied with former Vice President Joe Biden as the top choice among Democratic voters when asked who should be the party's nominee in 2020. A Hill-HarrisX poll released Tuesday found that 25 percent of Democrats said they would back Obama in the party primary over nine other declared or potential candidates, including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas). Obama has said she is not running, and Biden has not announced whether he will launch another White House bid.

Um, half of Dem voters don't seem too happy with the current candidates.

And not because they aren't far left enough. Just sayin'.

"However, that is the only example of a time that the ultimate nominee for a main party hasn't been in the top five of early polls taken since 1996. In fact, every cycle except for the 2016 Republican primary and the 2004 Democratic primary had the eventual party nominee in the top three for their party at this point.

To put it another way, in open primaries where there is no incumbent since 1996, the candidate who went on to win their primary was in the top three of an aggregate of polls taken between November (post-election) and January (two years before the election) 7 out of 9 times."

Michelle would be super interesting since she is super smart, black, and a woman.

3 things that make an alt-right anti-American Nazi's heads explode.

She is also well spoken, seems to actually care about people, and is tough.

Surprised she hasn't been brought up until now.

This is all corporate driven BS....Superbowl/Daytona 500 advertising revenue strategies. and I know this is just one more symptom of what's going to kill us...the collective "us". extract everything they can using what's available, good and bad, and then hide out in their fortifications and try to manage/survive the meltdown. 100 years from now...CRISPR, AI, robotics & cubic money will be the standard.
she's not going to run and hopefully neither will he. willie nelson/snoop dogg would poll better than trump, they ain't runnin' too

Two of those things are true. And that's all the SJW Left cares about.

This is going to be a looooong year. Any predictions that at least two currently announced presidential candidates drop out before primary votes roll in?

I wouldn't vote for her in a primary but i'd gladly choose her for president over the bloated orange racist game show host who brags about grabbing womens' vaginas without their permission.

God democrats are dumb.

"Hey this guy was a good president. I guess that means if he marries someone, they'd be a good president too!"

As if being president is something that is spread via bodily contact.

No, I'm pretty sure it's the fact that she hates white people.

What are you babbling about, Speaks?
She was an accomplished lawyer, a graduate of Harvard, was one of Harvard's top 100. She worked in intellectual property law, then went on to... screw it. Here's more info:

She is brilliant.

Not that it matters. She won't run.

Wanting to be a politician seems to be a contagious disease, if a congressperson dies in office, all too often their spouse is nominated for the seat.

She's intelligent, good looking, rich, and Obama has sex with her.

As others have said, don't believe the polls. The strongest candidate must prevail for the Dems to have a good chance against Trump and his crime syndicate. Some will help Trump only to keep their hides out of the pokey. Others who will help certainly are Russian actors manipulating Trump for their own aims. Whoever steps into this fight had better understand who and what they are up against. Most of the current candidates do not. Biden does.

Michelle will not be a candidate but she and her husband are associated with only one candidate -- Biden. If Diamond Joe enters the race, voters get the Obamas too. Biden's experience, mastery of public speaking, and ability to go toe to toe with Trumps minions give him the clear edge, and give Americans hope for the restoration of our country.

Suggesting Michelle Obama as a candidate is just pure longing to have Obama back again. It ain't gonna happen but I can understand their sentiment ~ considering the mentally deficient addlebrained goofball that we're stuck with now.

You should at least give Biden a chance first.

"You should at least give Biden a chance first."

I'd love to ~ but the way-back machine hasn't been invented yet. As much as I love Joe, he's getting too long in the tooth to handle the pressures of the hardest job in the world and the Democrats need a two termer to start fixing all the damage that Trump has done to America.

Russia can smell blood in the water with Trump in office. They're not going to give up that easy. And we still have too many GOP subversives in Washington DC who are more than willing to help them ~ for a price of course.

This coming from the guy who said the proof that there was no russian collusion was "common sense".

I see why you love trump. He's just like you. Plus 400 million dollars of his daddys money.

She isn't going to run because she is too smart to put herself (and her family) through that again.

Michellle won't run because she got her fill of Washington, DC. and was happy to be out of there so she could get on with a normal life of wife and mother. She has no interest in politics.

And in the prediction markets it's 60:40 Democrats win with Sanders 15, Harris 13, and Biden 11.

You literally support the party of the people that waged war against this country, whose current tagline is "America is explicitly not great".

That's some weak trolling, lobster.
