For the last two weeks, Democrats have been going crazy about the idea of a presidential run by Oprah in 2020. Liberals in Hollywood are really pushing the idea.
However, a new poll suggests she isn’t even the Democrats strongest candidate.
The Daily Caller reports:
Oprah Isn’t Polling Well For 2020
After a politically charged speech at the Golden Globe awards, social media and commentators started pitching the idea that Winfrey should challenge President Donald Trump in the next election, but her lead over the fellow former TV star is within the margin of error, according to a new Politico poll.
Winfrey leads Trump 40 to 38 percent in a general election run, according to the poll released Wednesday by Politico and Morning Consult. Around 22 percent of voters, however, were undecided in the head-to-head matchup.
She didn’t do well in polls for the Democratic nomination, either. Winfrey only gained the plurality of support against the two potential female primary candidates, Sens. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. Winfrey was ahead of Warren 39 to 35 percent, and bested Gillibrand 44 to 23 percent, according to the poll.
Choosing between Winfrey and potential male Democratic primary candidates Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, the poll respondents overwhelmingly chose the experienced male politicians. Biden received 54 percent of support to Oprah’s 31, and Sanders lead 46 percent to 37.
This poll doesn’t even take into account the vetting and the impact negative advertising would have. Oprah can’t save Democrats in 2020.
