A double dose of diversity. Could that be the Democrats’ slogan in 2024? Joe Rogan thinks so.
“Michelle Obama [in 2024] and they’re going to bring in Harris,” Rogan predicted last week while speaking to Tim Dillon on JRE. “Harris comes back as the Vice President and Michelle Obama is the President. We get a ‘double dose of diversity.'”
Rogan forecasts that Donald Trump will run in 2024. And while Rogan thinks Trump would defeat Biden, and rather easily, he says Michelle Obama would prevail.
“I really believe if Michelle Obama runs, she wins. She’s great, she’s intelligent, she’s articulate, she’s the wife of the best president that we have had in our lifetime in terms of like a representative of intelligent articulate people.”
“[The Republicans] have to make a super team. That’s the only way they win,” Rogan goes on. “Trump and DeSantis together.”
Michelle Obama is a more desirable option than Biden. And everyone is more desirable than Kamala Harris. So maybe Michelle Obama is the best option for the Democrats. However, that wouldn’t make her the 2024 frontrunner over the Republican candidate on its face.
Rogan says that Obama would feed off Barack Obama’s popularity. I’m not so sure.
First, Barack Obama lost votes between 2008 and 2012. Second, Biden’s failures are the sole reason this conversation exists not even one year into his presidency. There’s no President Joe Biden without Barack Obama. Ergo it’s not a lock that the Obama name would be the boost in battleground states that Rogan suggests.
The 2024 election will be a referendum on the Democratic party, regardless of the two candidates, much like 2020 was a referendum on Republicans. So unless Michelle Obama comes out and condemns the party’s pivot — and she never would — independent voters could view her as a moderate face for the Democrats’ radical agenda.
The betting market in the UK agrees. Flutter’s Paddy Power book listed Michelle Obama as the seventh most likely winner of the 2024 United States presidential election. The odds are as follows:
- Donald Trump, 3/1
- Joe Biden, 4/1
- Kamala Harris, 5/1
- Ron DeSantis, 12/1
- Mike Pence, 14/1
- Nikki Haley, 16/1
- Michelle Obama, 25/1
That said, Joe Rogan’s suggested slogan, “A double dose of diversity,” would sell well in the media. Can you imagine the coverage for a Michelle Obama-Kamala Harris ticket versus Trump? That could finally break this country for good.
