Joe Biden is collapsing in the polls and most experts believe there is not a single candidate left that can defeat Donald Trump in 2020.
Tucker Carlson is now pitching the idea that the stars are all lining up for Michelle Obama to run for and win the Democrat nomination.
Setting the stage
The Democrat primary race is a complete mess right now. The early states – which were once easily dominated by Joe Biden – are now a true tossup among at least four candidates.
Initially, Biden was expected to take a lot of the early delegates, but that has changed significantly over the last month. In New Hampshire, for instance, Joe Biden once held a commanding lead and more than 20 percent of the votes in a very crowded race.
Now, he is in fourth place behind Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Pete Buttigieg, respectively.
Point being, voters are very much split and considering the difference in those four candidates, it is hard to imagine any of them garnering enough support to beat Trump in a general election.
Enter Michelle Obama
Carlson believes that because of the likelihood all these candidates will fail, Former First Lady Michelle Obama may decide to make a late entrance into the race.
“If you’re wondering who the Democratic nominee will be, don’t bet against Michelle Obama. Last week, the former first lady issued a statement claiming she has no interest in being president, but there are signs that’s not true,” he said on Monday.
One of the main reasons he believes this is because Barack Obama has still not announced his support of any one candidate, even though his former Vice President is in the race. Carlson said that if Obama endorsed Biden, the race would be over, but the fact that he hasn’t leads Carlson to believe there’s more to the story. Watch:
There is also the fact that Barack Obama’s book launch has been purposely delayed and Michelle Obama is going on her second book tour.
This gives them both ample opportunity to speak throughout the country to influence voters. Conspiracy theory? Maybe, but there is more than enough truth behind it to warrant some real concern over Michelle Obama suddenly throwing her hat into the ring.
As Carlson stated, she may be the one Democrat that could unite the party right now, completely changing the dynamics of this race and offering a true threat to Trump in 2020.
