Cuban has not said whether or not he is running for president, but he has admitted to considering it in the past.
In 2015, he said that he would “seriously consider” running for president if he thought he could win. He has also been critical of both major political parties, and he has said that he believes he could be a better president than either Donald Trump or Joe Biden.
In 2020, Cuban commissioned a poll he told political strategist David Axelrod (per Business Insider):
“So I hired a pollster,” Cuban told Axelrod, who is now the director of the University of Chicago’s Institute of Politics after serving as the chief strategist for both of Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns.
He added: “In a three way between me, Biden, and Trump, I just dominated with me as an independent. I dominated the independent vote. I got like 77% of it.”
Cuban also said he was able to shave off some support from both Biden and Trump, but the overall numbers were not enough to move the needle.
“But in aggregate, I was only able to get up to 25%,” he said.
If Cuban does run for president, he would be a formidable candidate. He is an incredibly wealthy self-made businessman with an estimated $6.3 Billion. He is also known for his outspoken personality and his willingness to challenge the status quo.
Of course, there is no guarantee that Cuban will run for president. He may decide that he is better off staying out of politics as some rumors have swirled he could become the CEO of Caremark, which is a benefit subsidiary of CVS Health. But if he does run, he could shake up the 2024 general election.
