Michelle Obama would be the Democratic front-runner in New Hampshire should she decide to enter the 2020 Presidential race, a new survey has found.
The shock poll - conducted by The Boston Herald and Franklin Pierce University - found the former FLOTUS would nab 26% of the vote in the northeastern state - which is one of the first in the country to vote in the Democratic Primaries.
Obama would be six percentage points ahead of current front-runners Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren - each of whom would secure 20% of the New Hampshire vote should the First Lady throw her hat into the ring.
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders would drop to fourth place, with a 15% share.
The poll was conducted between October 9 and 13, with 422 likely Democratic primary voters in New Hampshire questioned about their preferences over the phone.
While Obama has previously ruled out a run for the Oval Office, fears are growing that none of the top-tier Democratic candidates will be able to beat President Trump at the General Election.
According to Associated Press, the candidates 'are facing urgent questions about their ability to challenge Trump, prompted by a health scare for Sanders, an uneven response by Biden to the President's efforts to tie him to the impeachment inquiry, and nagging questions about liberal Warren's electability.'
