Poll ➠ Michelle Obama Would Be Hillary Clinton’s Strongest Rival For Dem Nomination
A Mooch vs. Hillary vs. Elizabeth Warren presidential debate would be blogging gold.
Via The Hill:
If Michelle Obama decided to run for president in 2016 she would represent the most significant threat, among likely contenders, to Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning the Democratic nomination, according to a new Rasmussen poll.
A telephone survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted by the polling company found that, in a hypothetical match-up between the current First Lady and the former secretary of State, Clinton would best Obama 56 percent to 22 percent.
That may seem like a significant margin, but according to the most recent RealClearPolitics polling average, Elizabeth Warren — Clinton’s other biggest hypothetical challenger — nets just 12.5 percent to Clinton’s 64 percent.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the only other declared Democratic candidate for President, is even further behind with 7.4 percent. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley, who is expected to announce his bid on May 30, fares the worst against Clinton with 1.2 percent of support from likely voters.
