Polls has Michelle Obama beating Trump in the 2024 election

Former First Lady Michelle Obama is the best candidate to replace President Joe Biden on the Democratic Party's 2024 ballot. 

This is because, according to the Daily Mail, Obama is the only one, of the potential Biden replacement candidates, whom a new poll says could actually beat former President Donald Trump.

This all comes as Biden continues to face substantial pressure - from members of his own party - to drop out of the 2024 presidential election, following his poor performance at the first presidential debate.

Whether Biden will give in to the pressure remains to be seen.

If not Biden, then who?

Many names have been floated, including Obama, Vice President Kamala Harris, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D), and others.

Many believe that Obama would give the Democrats the best opportunity to beat Trump. Proponents of this theory often point to strong polls for Obama.

The Daily Mail reports that, in a new poll, only Obama would be able to beat Trump. In fact, Obama is claimed to have more than a 10 percentage point lead on Trump.

There are a couple of things to note though. One is that not all polls are in agreement about Obama's chances against Trump. And, two, Obama has, in recent weeks, repeatedly made it clear that she has no intention to make a run at the presidency.

If there was an easy answer to the question of whom to replace Biden with, then, surely, the Democrats would have done so by now. But, there isn't, which is one of the main reasons why the Democrats might just be stuck with Biden.

Report: Biden is thinking about dropping out

The New York Times reported, on Friday, that Biden has been weighing whether or not to drop out of the 2024 presidential election.

Per the outlet:

President Biden has told key allies that he knows the coming days are crucial and understands that he may not be able to salvage his candidacy if he cannot convince voters that he is up to the job after a disastrous debate performance last week.

The White House immediately put out a statement contradicting the Times' reporting. Spokesman Andrew Bates told Fox News, "That claim is absolutely false. If the New York Times had provided us with more than 7 minutes to comment, we would have told them so."

Quentin Fulks, a key member of Biden's 2024 campaign, also said:

There are a number of rumors floating out there. The president is in this race to win it. He is the Democratic nominee. And from our perspective, we are going to continue to do everything we can to make sure that we're building a campaign apparatus, to reach voters.

Many commentators, though, are giving more credence to the Times' report than to the White House's attempt to refute it. But, the bottom line, is that, at the time of this writing, it remains to be seen how this will all play out.
