Far left political commentator Van Jones recently said that if the Democrats run Oprah Winfrey in 2020 that she’ll win all fifty states. That might be wishful thinking on his part.
First of all, there’s no evidence that Oprah wants to run for president. It would be a huge pay cut for her. Secondly, even if she does run she needs to convince people she can do the job. People aren’t going to make her president just because she’s Oprah.
Mediaite has the story:
Van Jones on 2020 Election: ‘If Oprah Winfrey Ran, She’d Win All 50 States’
President Oprah Winfrey? CNN’s Van Jones thinks it would work. During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live, a caller asked him who he thinks would be the Democrat to beat President Donald Trump in 2020. Without hesitating, he said, “Oprah Winfrey.”…
But it takes a superstar to beat a superstar. I think if Oprah Winfrey ran, she’d win all 50 states. It’d be a wrap.”
Watch the video:
Democrats are going to have a hard time no matter who they run.
If Trump delivers on prosperity and safety, if the voters are happy with the job he’s doing, he’ll win more states than he did in the 2016 election.
