President Obama said he if could have run for a third term, he would have won.

In a CNN interview with former advisor David Axelrod for "The Axe Files" podcast, Obama insisted the vision he ran on in 2008 had not faded and that the majority of Americans still believed in it.

But in 2016, he argued, failed Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton -- and Obama's former Secretary of State -- ignored too many voting blocs to win.

LISTEN | He also insisted the Democratic Party's agenda was still the best for the nation, even for the groups that voted against it. Many pundits have questioned the future of the party after Clinton's defeat.

LISTEN | He also detailed his plans for the future, including writing a book and self-reflecting.

"I have to be quiet for a while... I have to still myself," he said.

Would Obama have won if he could run for a third term?

Critics thought he was delusional for thinking he could win again.

And many voters that voted for him in 2008 chose Trump in 2016.

But many supporters agreed they'd miss him. His approval rating is 56 percent per Gallup.
