Michelle Obama is an attorney, author, and former First Lady from 2009-2017. Although Obama has not declared for the 2020 Presidential election and never plans to seek the political office of her own, the Chicago native still has Presidential betting odds.
As Obama has not officially launched a Presidential campaign, any voter base she may have is mostly speculative. However, stemming from her time as FLOTUS, Obama has a strong group of supporters.
While the former First Lady is still featured on political betting boards with chances to win the Democratic nomination and 2020 Presidential election, she’s also on the list of potential VP picks for Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, or anyone else who picks up the DNC nod.
All that said, Michelle O has made no indication that she’s interested in politics at this time, so she’s a bit of a long shot. However, if you think she’s got the itch, she could probably get the VP nomination with a single phone call. With that kind of power, perhaps putting a few bucks on “Big Mike” isn’t a bad idea. The following 2020 VP betting odds are from Bovada:

Based on the current political betting odds, Obama has little chance to beat Donald Trump in 2020. But that’s not to say these numbers won’t change if she were to make a late entry.
Of course, Obama is a longshot compared to Democratic favorites like Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. But when examined next to Tulsi Gabbard or Michael Bennet, Obama actually fares better in Presidential betting odds.
Obama’s chance of winning the Democratic nomination is much better than her shot at the Presidency, although the likelihood is thin. Other than Hillary Clinton, another former First Lady, Obama leads the pack of non-candidate odds.
According to Bovada, Obama has a better chance of earning the Democratic nomination than Tulsi Gabbard and Amy Klobuchar, among a few other big names.
The glory of futures bets is that they can be bet on at any time. This style of betting is particularly popular in terms of political wagers, especially for events like the 2020 election a year from now.
As long as a sportsbook offers odds on Michelle Obama’s Presidency chances, bets can be placed on the former FLOTUS. If you think Obama has a shot, many online sites are currently accepting action.
Unfortunately for Obama, or maybe it’s a good thing since she’s not a fan of politics, her current betting odds tell us she is not likely to become the next President of the United States.
However, if Obama did change her mind on things, her odds would skyrocket into the upper tier of candidates. Until then, there’s no reason to hold out too much for Obama.
Like other non-candidates such as Oprah, Obama has a 0% chance of winning any elections in 2020. Predictwise, a popular prediction market, has little faith in the Princeton grad’s chances.
With her current numbers, Obama ranks with candidates that have already dropped out, including Kirsten Gillibrand and Beto O’Rourke.
A recent survey of the Democratic electorate hinted at who Joe Biden will select as his Vice Presidential running mate. And although all 2020
Michelle Obama has been adamant over the years that she has no passion for the political game. Even going as far as to discourage Barack from running his multiple campaigns over the last couple of decades, Michelle is not likely to ever run for elected office.
With that being said, there is a good chance that Obama will still be involved in the political future of America, even if only indirectly.
After graduating from Harvard Law, Obama began working as an associate at Chicago’s Sidley & Austin law firm where she eventually met future-husband Barack Obama. By 1991, Obama had entered the public sector in Chicago’s city government before joining the nonprofit Public Allies.
Obama then began her tenure at the University of Chicago, serving in various capacities from 1996 through 2008 when she took her leave of absence to serve as the First Lady.
Obama graduated from Chicago’s Whitney Young High School as the salutatorian in 1981 before starting her college career at Princeton. Graduating with a bachelor’s degree in sociology cum laude, Obama continued onto Harvard Law School where she graduated in 1988.
Betting on Obama, even with a small amount, would pay out handsomely if she were to win the nomination or election. Obama’s odds on Bovada are list as +10000 for the Democratic Party nomination and +20000 for the Presidential election.
Just by placing $100 on either bet would return $10,000 and $20,000, respectively.
