Many Democrats are seriously considering former U.S. President Michelle Obama as an alternative to Joe Biden in the presidential elections, according to the Washington Times.
This is due to concerns that investigations into the current president’s son, Hunter, may reveal ‘more damaging information’ about his father.
Polls show that half of Democratic voters do not want Biden to run for a second term. At 80 years old, he has already become the oldest president in American history.
The article states that ‘Democrats are even less supportive of potential alternatives such as California Governor Newsom, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, and even Vice President Harris.’
For this reason, some Democrats continue to ‘return to the idea of Mrs. Obama,’ who enjoyed ‘greater popularity among Democrats during her 8 years in the White House than her husband.’
As shown by a poll conducted in August, Michelle Obama remains a favorite among Democrats, even more so than Biden (48% to 36%).
