In her memoir “Becoming” Michelle Obama writes, “I’ve never been a fan of politics, and my experience over the last ten years has done little to change that.” However, in view of her huge popularity and sky-high approval ratings, senior Democrats might talk her into reconsidering the decision. Her memoir is a huge success and it has topped the bestseller list since it was published in November. Moreover, polls continue to rate her as being more popular than Donald Trump and her party might convince her to take the plunge to become the first woman POTUS.

Daily Mail UK reports Michelle Obama is averse to becoming the President and has expressed her unwillingness. However, a section of Democrats feel she could be convinced to change her decision.

Her ratings are at a peak and she could fit the bill of their candidate in the 2020 US presidential race.

Michelle’s reach increased due to her memoir

Books appear to be the deciding factor because Barack Obama's popularity soared with the publication of his book “The Audacity Of Hope” in 2006. That led to his bid for the White House as America’s first black President and he held that honor for two terms. Right now, Michelle’s book “Becoming” is on a roll with its bestseller status ever since it hit the stalls in November. In the opinion of experts, she as America’s first female President could prove a tough contest for the present incumbent Donald Trump.

Mike Huckabee also feels her party could nominate Michelle Obama.

Mike belongs to the other camp. He was unsuccessful in getting the 2008 Republican presidential nomination and has now predicted that Michelle Obama could be a candidate for 2020. She has already bagged the title of “Most Admired Woman” for 2018 [VIDEO]. That, coupled with her book “Becoming” has prepared the base to propel her to the chair.

Former First Lady is reluctant

According to The Sun UK, former First Lady Michelle Obama appears to be a hot favorite to be in the 2020 Presidential race, thanks to the growing popularity of her memoirs. The book “Becoming” has boosted her approval ratings and there is a strong feeling in certain quarters that exploiting the advantage will pay dividends. However, she is in a denial mode even though some polls rate her above Donald Trump. Her husband became the first black president and Michelle (54) could follow his example. It is too early to make any prediction but she has a way with people and can make others feel at ease, which is an important quality of a leader. There could be others in the 2020 Presidential race [VIDEO], but Michelle will probably have the edge.
