Democrat voters say they would choose former First Lady Michelle Obama over President Joe Biden in a hypothetical 2024 primary matchup, a new poll has revealed.
According to the results of the survey, conducted in conjunction with Noble Predictive Insights and published by The Center Square, Obama would be the clear winner, beating Biden by a wide margin.
In a hypothetical matchup, the poll found that 48 percent of Democrats would pick Michelle Obama.
Just 36 percent said they would prefer to stick with Biden.
The remaining 16 percent said they were undecided.
Michelle Obama enjoys strong support from women, childless voters, and voters under the age of 55, according to the poll.
“Biden is pretty safe in the Democratic primary,” Noble Predictive Insights CEO Mike Noble told Center Square.
“However, he’d better make sure Michelle Obama is on his Christmas card list.”
Among the current crop of contenders, Biden is the clearcut frontrunner to win his party’s primary.
The poll shows 68 percent of Democrats would pick Biden over Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (16 percent), with the remaining 16 undecided.
Similarly, voters also would overwhelmingly choose Biden (67 percent) over writer Marianne Williamson (9 percent), according to the poll.
Despite his embattled presidency, Biden also handily beats other Democrats in hypothetical matchups.
Vice President Kamala Harris, California Gov. Gavin Newsom, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, and twice-failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton were all beaten by Biden.

The survey was conducted from July 31 to August 3.
2,500 registered voters were interviewed, comprising of 1,000 Democrats, 1,000 Republicans, and 500 independents.
The margin of error for the aggregate sample was plus or minus 2.4 percent, with each political group independently weighted.
Moreover, despite the president and his corporate media allies downplaying the Hunter Biden scandal, it is damaging his re-election bid.
“There’s a reason why his numbers are the way they are,” a Democrat strategist told NBC News on condition of anonymity.
“It’s not just the economy,” the strategist said of Biden’s low job approval ratings.
“It’s not because people are just concerned about inflation.
“It’s not just because people are concerned about his age. His brand has been damaged by [Hunter] and those around him.”
“The recent revelations with Hunter Biden really are in conflict with the current perception of his image of being squeaky-clean,” he told NBC News.
“I think this potentially impacts his image.”
