Libertarian podcast host Joe Rogan made a somewhat perplexing prediction about the 2024 presidential election. Rogan claimed if Michelle Obama, an ex-first lady, decides to run for the White House, she will beat Donald Trump.
Rogan Heaps Lots of Praise on the Obamas
On the latest edition of his podcast, The Joe Rogan Experience, the comedian sounded really certain Obama would be the favorite if she runs in the 2024 race.
Rogan made clear his understanding that “the only thing” to stop Obama’s victory could be her potential decision to support policies that are bad for businesses, such as vaccine mandates, mask mandates, and lockdowns.
Rogan went on a tirade praising the former First Lady as “great”, “articulate”, and “intelligent”, and also as the wife of “the best” US president “in our lifetime,” which is why “she can win.”
Rogan then said 57-year-old Michelle Obama could have as her running mate Sleepy Joe Biden’s current vice president, 57-year-old Kamala Harris. The comedian then joked an Obama – Harris ticket for the Democrats would give America a “double dose of diversity”.
Rogan didn’t remain with the Democrats, however. He jumped over the Republicans, where he declared the GOP “super team” for winning the presidency in 2024 would Trump with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as his running mate.
According to the podcaster, this “super team” of Trump – DeSantis would be the only way Republicans regain the White House in 2024.
More on the 2024 Polls
Michelle Obama herself hasn’t shown any intention whatsoever to run for the White House.
A recent poll about the top potential Democrat candidates in 2024 found the Democrat voters’ top picks to replace Biden are Kamala Harris with 11% and Michelle Obama with 10%.
Right now, bookmakers are placing Michelle Obama as an outside shot at one twenty-fifth. She is thus considered the eighth favorite, The Daily Mail reported.
That would place her behind Donald Trump, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Ron DeSantis, Trump’s ex-Vice President Mike Pence, former US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley, and Biden’s Transportation Secretary and protégé Pete Buttigieg.
Other outside shots considered by bookmakers include Fox News host Tucker Carlson (33/1), actor Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock at (33/1), talk show host Oprah Winfrey (33/1), and even actress and British royalty by marriage Meghan Markle (150/1).
The question as to whether Biden can and will run for a second term seemingly will be plaguing the Democrat Party for a good while.
A new poll by Politico and Morning Consult found only 40% of American voters actually consider Sleepy Joe to be in “good health”, while exactly 50% disagreed.
When it comes to suspicions about Biden’s senility or even dementia, in the same poll, a total of 46% of the respondents said they view him as “mentally fit”, while 48% said he isn’t.
Likewise, 44% of voters said they view Sleepy Joe as “stable”, while 50% disagreed.
