The Democratic primary field for President is a disaster.
But Democrats are nervous that no one in the current field can beat Trump and desire former First Lady Michelle Obama to jump into the race.
But this one mind-blowing poll just gave Michelle Obama some really bad news.
Michelle Obama is the greatest hope for Democrats according to some.
The former First Lady and wife to President Barack Obama has been hailed as a potential presidential candidate in her own right.
But while polls show that she would place near the top of any presidential field if she chose to throw her hat in the ring, Michelle Obama just got some awful news.
This shocking poll may keep her out of the race altogether, and it could spell doom for the entire Democratic field regardless of who the party runs.
Breitbart reports, “A new survey of North Carolina voters shows President Donald Trump is particularly popular in the state, beating out every Democrat he was polled against in head-to-head match-ups in the 2020 presidential election – a strong sign for the president as he wades deeper into 2019.”
The Harper Polling / NCCivitas poll gives the President commanding leads over almost every major Democrat currently running for President, as well as sizable leads against those who haven’t even gotten into the race yet.
Against New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, Trump leads by 8 points, with a 44% margin vs Booker’s 36%.
Against California Senator Kamala Harris, Trump trashes her 45% to 34%, an astounding 11 point lead.
Trump does even better against Bernie Sanders, crushing the Vermont socialist 46% to 34%, a 12 point lead that is the largest in the survey.
But it’s against Joe Biden, President Obama’s former Vice President, that the real problem for Democrats really shows itself in the state.
Biden does the best of all the Democrats polled, yet he still loses out to Trump 43% to 39%. This 4 point loss is the closest of any of the candidates to Trump, but it highlights a major problem for the party.
If Democrats can’t win North Carolina their path to a majority of the electoral college gets much narrower.
And if Democrats think that Michelle Obama can swoop in to save the party from Trump in 2020, it appears they are gravely mistaken.
North Carolina and Florida were the two non-Midwestern swing states in 2016 that gave Trump the edge over Hillary Clinton.
If Democrats had won those two states, even while losing Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania, they would have won the presidency.
But with polls showing Trump is up in North Carolina by an even greater margin than his victory in the state two years ago, it seems clear that Democrats have their work cut out for them.
And in the case of Obama, the poll is devastating news.
With President Trump defeating all the major Democratic candidates however, it appears calls for Michelle Obama to jump into the race will only grow.
And her biggest argument for running in 2020 is that she would have a better shot at defeating Trump than the other candidates currently in the field, as this poll clearly shows.
Do you think Michelle Obama will run for President?
