• Michelle Obama could still announce her candidacy before the election
  • Michelle Obama previously said that she's not running for president
  • Michelle Obama is predicted to win at this year's election

Michelle Obama has not yet announced her desire to run for president in this year’s election, but there are already some predictions suggesting that she could win.

Election expert Allan Lichtman recently told the Daily Caller that the ex-FLOTUS has the best chance of winning among the other Democratic candidates. The expert said that Barack Obama’s wife has the charismatic potential and the pizzazz that other candidates don’t have.

“Bernie Sanders has pizzazz, but he’s like Trump. He appeals only to a narrow slice of the electorate. He’s not a Franklin Delano Roosevelt or a Ronald Reagan,” he said.

Lichtman went on to say that there are some rules that could prevent Michelle from running for president, but these rules can be changed. At the end of the day, her announcement seems like a long shot but it is not impossible.

In October, the 2020 presidential campaign polls revealed that the ex-FLOTUS could really become the next president of the United States if only she would announce her candidacy. However, some of her critics mocked Michelle after the poll results were released.

“Love her but no. The presidency is not an entry-level job,” one Twitter user wrote.

“Experience and qualifications matter. Let her run for another office first,” another person tweeted.

Meanwhile, some supporters of the former first lady encouraged her to announce her candidacy as soon as possible.

“I wish Michelle Obama would run for president. Imagine the sigh of relief,” Twitter user @macklyy said.

“We need @MichelleObama to run for president and get the Obama family back in the office. Maybe they could help clean this mess up again,” Twitter user @Demareelzzy said.

Earlier this year, Michelle told Conan O’Brien on his podcast that she’s not interested in politics. As such, she has no plans to run for president. But some netizens are still convinced that she could pull a Beyoncé and make the important announcement at the last minute.
