Vice President Kamala Harris and former first lady Michelle Obama are most likely to win Democratic Party nomination for president, if the incumbent does not stand for reelection.
The latest Hill/HarrisX poll found Harris or Obama would be the next-in-line to replace Joe Biden, if the incumbent does not wish to stay in the Oval Office.
The vice president attracted 13% of support from Democrat voters despite suffering low approval ratings. The former first lady trailed close behind with 10% according to Fox News.
Other potential contenders include Democrat Sens. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), and Cory Booker (N.J.). Failed 2020 presidential candidates Michael Bloomberg, Andrew Yang, and Pete Buttigieg were less popular options.
However, Obama is unlikely to run for public office since she openly ruled out any potential tilt for presidency. She is seemingly content with co-chairing her When We All Vote initiative.
“I would not ask my children to do this again,” she said according to The Independent. “When you run for higher office it is not just you, it is your whole family.”
The Hill revealed a further 13% of poll respondents would rather vote for a presidential candidate who was not already listed.
Biden is widely speculated to stand for reelection in 2024 and he will be 81 years-old on Election Day.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently claimed Biden has every “intention” to run as the president.
Donald Trump still tops many polls about who Republicans would like to nominate for party president.
Trump previously suggested he might run again in 2024.
“[This is] a very interesting time in our country but do not worry, we will be great again—and we will all do it together,” he said in a statement obtained by the broadcaster. “America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction–too many generations of greatness are counting on us.”
