Americans Overwhelmingly Oppose a Michelle Obama Presidential Run

Washington, DC

For some reason, Rasmussen thought it worthwhile to poll Americans on whether or not Michelle Obama should challenge Hillary for the Democratic nomination.

The results don’t look good for the current First Lady.

Michelle Obama for president? What if she ran against the seemingly impregnable Hillary Clinton?

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 14% of likely U.S. Voters think the first lady should run for president. Seventy-one percent (71%) disagree, but another 15% are not sure.

She didn’t even manage to win over minority voters when it came to a White House bid of her own.

Among black voters, however, 40% think Obama should run, and only 41% disagree.
