Michelle Obama Video Has Lot of People Talking

Former First Lady Michelle Obama urged Black Americans to recognize the importance of voting in the upcoming November elections, emphasizing it as "critical" to safeguarding their "freedom."

“Juneteenth is all about celebrating our collective freedom and fighting to protect it,” Obama stated in a video posted on X.

“Our power, our rights, and even our planet are on the ballot this year,” she emphasized. “So, now is the time to think about how you’re going to make your voice heard in this election.”

This urgent message comes amid recent polling indicating that former President Donald Trump might secure a historically significant number of votes from Black Americans.

In 2018, the former First Lady founded the voter registration and engagement organization “When We All Vote” and encouraged her 22 million followers on X to visit the group’s website.

“Get yourself registered to vote, and then text three friends to do the same,” she advised. “Do not sit on the sidelines this year, because this is a critical moment for all of us.”


During a January interview on Jay Shetty’s “On Purpose” podcast, Obama issued another passionate call to action, expressing her fear about the potential outcomes of the upcoming election, which is likely to be a rematch between Trump and President Joe Biden.

“Because our leaders matter,” she explained. “Who we select, who speaks for us, who holds that bully pulpit — it affects us in ways that sometimes I think people take for granted.”

In March, Obama’s office reiterated that she “will not be running for president,” despite speculation due to Biden's low poll numbers.

“As former First Lady Michelle Obama has expressed several times over the years, she will not be running for president,” Crystal Carson, director of communications for Obama’s office, told NBC News.

“Mrs. Obama supports President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris’ re-election campaign,” she added.

However, some continue to speculate that the former First Lady might eventually enter the race. Senator Ted Cruz, R-Texas, predicted in September that “the Democrat kingmakers [will] jettison Joe Biden and parachute in Michelle Obama” at the Democratic convention in August.

Trump has seen improved polling numbers among Black and Hispanic voters for over a year. An April survey from Rasmussen Reports showed the prospective GOP nominee holding a double-digit lead over Biden among likely Hispanic voters, with Black and Asian Americans also appearing to shift towards the Republican Party.

Overall, Trump leads Biden 49-41 percent, consistent with Rasmussen's survey of likely voters last month, as reported by the Washington Examiner.

The outlet noted:

But this time, Rasmussen highlighted the gap among Hispanic voters that favors Trump. The pollster said Latinos support Trump over Biden, 48%-37%. This is a notable change from 2020, when Hispanics favored Biden 59%-38%, according to Pew statistics.

In 2020, Biden also won Asian voters by a margin of 72%-28%, Pew reported. Rasmussen now shows Trump leading 39%-36%.

In the last election, Biden performed well with Black voters, 92%-8%. Rasmussen's latest survey shows Biden’s lead has narrowed to 48%-39%.

Democrats are worried about the significant shift from 2020, as they rely heavily on a substantial minority advantage to win. These gaps are expected to close in Biden’s favor as the election approaches, the Examiner added.

Additionally, Trump is performing better among self-described Independents.

“Trump benefits from both stronger partisan intensity and a double-digit advantage among independent voters,” the Rasmussen analysis noted. “In a head-to-head matchup with Biden, Trump gets 83% of Republican votes, compared to Biden’s 74% among Democrats.

“Among voters not affiliated with either major party, Trump leads with 46% to Biden’s 35%. These gaps are not significantly affected by the inclusion of RFK Jr., [Jill] Stein or [Cornell] West on the ballot,” the report concluded.
