Since late last year, President Trump’s polling numbers have continued to improve to well above that of Barack Obama’s at the same point in his first term.
Couple that both with polls showing he’d defeat top-tier Dems in a head-to-head contest and also with the fact the Democrat generic ballot advantage has vanished, and suddenly the November picture is looking rather nice for the GOP.
There’s just one problem: Zogby just released hypothetical numbers showing a match-up between Trump and Obama…Michelle Obama.
She leads him decisively at 48-39. It’s an interesting thought given her refusal to run for Senate but with a strategic non-answer for a potential White House bid.
And with her new book due out just after the November election, we can only speculate.
Here’s more from Hotair.com…
On a slow post-holiday news day, what could be more blogworthy than a (1) 2020 poll (2) from Zogby, of all people, (3) featuring a hypothetical match-up between POTUS and Obama?
Michelle Obama, that is. Not Barack.
Her book, “Becoming,” is due out one week after the midterms in November. Hmmmm.
Since our last poll, Michelle Obama has a comfortable 9% lead-the former first lady beats Trump 48% to 39%, up from 49%-42% in January. The reason for the race favoring Michelle Obama is that the former first lady does make the same inroads that [Bernie] Sanders and [Joe] Biden make with groups that supported the president, such as independents (Obama leads 43% to 32%) and voters without a college degree (Obama leads 46% to 41%), 18-29 year olds (Obama leads 56% to 30%) and voters aged 18-24 (Obama leads 62% to 27%). Trump wins with white voters-48% to 39% and among older voters aged 65+ by double digits, NASCAR fans (Trump wins 53%-37%), and Walmart shoppers (Trump wins 46%-42%). Trump also wins voters in the South (Trump wins 46%-44%) and Central Great Lakes regions (Trump wins 46%-42%) region. A majority of union (58%), east (57%) and west (52%) voters back Michelle Obama much more than the president.
