Michelle 2016? Almost half of Americans says first lady more popular than President Obama
The Washington Times ^ | March 6, 2013 | Jennifer Harper

There is already a bumper sticker out there that says “Barack 2012, Michelle 2016,” spotted in the nation’s capital in the last month. In that mindset, consider new numbers just released: a Harris Poll gauging first lady Michelle Obama’s popular appeal among Americans, including a rating of her “job” performance and yes, a comparison with her hubby.

The numbers:

71 percent of Americans say Michelle Obama was a positive factor in President Obama’s re-election; 54 percent of Republicans and 89 percent of Democrats agree.

70 percent of Americans overall say Mrs. Obama has a positive influence on the president’s decisions; 39 percent of Republicans and 95 percent of Democrats agree.

65 percent overall give Mrs. Obama a positive review on “the job she is doing as first lady”; 33 percent of Republicans and 88 percent of Democrats agree.

47 percent overall say she is “the best dressed first lady”; 24 percent of Republicans and 67 percent of Democrats agree....

Barf. She scares me almost as much as her husband. When she showed up at the Oscars all dolled up, well, that was the last straw!

I guess her “all this for a Flag?” comment was a big hit with the masses. Who woulda thunk it?

That’s true for me. I despise OZero with about 99% of my being. I only despise Moochelle with about 90% of my being.

So she’s 9% more popular in my book.

I caught myself about to argue about lack of experience, but hey, we stopped caring about that that two elections ago.
This is a banana republic now.

"Michelle 2016? Almost half of Americans says first lady more popular than President Obama"

That really makes the progressive electorate look bad!

We will never see another rino or conservative in the white house. The dumb freepers and voters who didn't vote for Romney will never see anything president but a dem in their life. Obamacare alone was enough to vote against Obama.

Traitors all! The House will go dem in 2014. Mrs. Obama will be President in 2016. How that not voting for Romney looking now?

The only enjoyable part of that Dim primary would be watching Her Thighness and Moochie rip each other to shreds! I would put my $ on Her Thighness.

It was made very,very clear in the spring and summer of '08 that race trumps everything in today's Rat Party.

A simple mistake. The pole asked who had the larger backside, not who had a larger backing.

Some of the more kooky liberal members of my family have been debating who should be the first female POTUS. Some want the beast and some want the wookie. At least the beast has some real experience, not that that matters to the left.

And yes, I have family members who are crazy.

IOW, ignorance is bliss.

We know less about her than we knew about BHO in 2008.

Yeah, she's a shoo-in!!

EVERY First Lady is more popular than their husband. Laura Bush always maintained high marks. Not sure about Hillary...strong negatives, but popular with the women’s rights crowd.

"71 percent of Americans say" ... the mulatto bastard is ineligable and should be removed.

The 71% THEY'RE talkin' about is Bloomburg's cabinet.

Costa Rica looks pretty good right now. You can actually drink a beer outside your home without breaking some law. Believe it or not, it's true.

I can drink a beer outside my home in SC. I don't need to leave the US to do that. Not sure where you are, but maybe you need another town or state. We've got to stand our ground somewhere. Pick some ground and defend it.
