    Run, Michelle, Run!



    She's the front runner?!?!

    The democrats are so doomed - a woman who has never held office is outperforming their entire field!

    there is no one less qualified to be President than someone who has had a close family member as President.

    Is the implication here that Michelle Obama's wild popularity (that poll shows ~46% of "Lean-R" NH primary voters would vote for Obama were she to enter the race, along with ~22% of conservative voters) is a ... negative for Democrats?

    Michelle Obama won't run and all top three Democratic candidates are beating Trump in head-to-head polling right now. So who Michelle Obama ends up stumping for is going to have the advantage of a very popular supporter with universal name recognition.

    Trump would be so lucky.

    Three months out from the primaries having anyone that can lead your field without running is a very bad sign.

    In New Hampshire, where Biden & Sanders were beating Trump by +5 to +10 in September, I'd be a lot more concerned about the 14% potential Weld supporters crossing over.

    It's not unusual for someone to be popular in the polls until they start campaigning, and then things turn around in a hurry.

    But I do hope the Democrats are desperate and stupid enough to pull something like this.

    Depends on which poll you're looking at. I saw one recently showing Trump easily beating the Democrats in key states.

    But like I keep saying, the only poll that matters is the one that happens on election day.

    So elect Michelle and you can another term for Barack Obama.

    Oh sure - and this is just funny - but it isn't a good sign this close to primaries.
