Michelle Obama Would Enter 2020 Race as 'Front-Runner,' New Hampshire Poll Shows
Survey revealed a three-way tie for the top spot in New Hampshire
Over the past year, former first lady Michelle Obama has repeatedly stated there is "zero chance" she would run for president in 2020, but if she changed her mind, she would enter the presidential race as the front-runner, according to a new poll in New Hampshire.
On Monday, the Boston Herald-Franklin Pierce University survey revealed a three-way tie for the top spot in New Hampshire:
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren: 25 percent support
- Joe Biden: 24 percent support
- Sen. Bernie Sanders: 22 percent support
But if Obama was to jump into the race (hypothetically) - the poll suggested she would swipe 26 percent support from likely Democratic primary voters in the Granite State, leaving Warren and Biden at 20 percent, and Sanders at a mere 15 percent.
But Obama resisted and an avalanche of calls for her to declare her candidacy.
"There are so many ways to improve this country and build a better world, and I keep doing plenty of them, from working with young people to helping families lead healthier lives," Obama said.
"But sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office will never be one of them. It’s just not for me," she told Amtrak's magazine The National this past August.
On Oct. 9-13, the Boston Herald-Franklin Pierce University conducted the poll with 422 likely Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire interviewed by live telephone operators.
The margin of error for the survey was plus or minus 4.8 percentage points.

Speaking on MSNBC following August's presidential debate, Moore said the four leading Democratic candidates could still beat Trump, but lose the electoral college.
"The only way to remove Trump is to crush Trump," he said.
"Who is the street fighter that can crush Trump?" he asked.
"And frankly, I think there’s a person that could do this, if the election were held today, there is one person that would crush Trump — and she hasn’t announced yet."
"And her last name rhymes with Obama. In fact, it is Obama. Michelle Obama."
