Shock: Brand New Poll Reveals Disastrous Results for Oprah's Potential 2020 Run


The liberal media might be enamored with talk show host, actress and all-around celebrity Oprah Winfrey at the moment, but the American people feel quite differently.

A recent Politico/Morning Consult poll  found that Winfrey leads President Donald Trump by only a meager 2 percentage points, 40 percent to 38 percent, in a head-to-head match.

“Among Democrats, Winfrey would lead Trump, 73 percent to 9 percent,” Politico reported. “Trump has a similar advantage among Republicans, 76 percent to 11 percent. Independents tilt slightly toward Winfrey, 35 percent to 30 percent, with another 35 percent undecided.”

Keep in mind that failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton carried a larger lead against Trump in the days leading up to the 2016 presidential election, as can be seen in the following chart from RealClearPolitics:

That means the ending for an Oprah bid could well be just as disastrous as it was for Hillary Clinton in the early hours of Nov. 9, 2016.

The Politico/Morning Consult poll uncovered something else as well: In head-head primary matchups, Democrats overwhelmingly prefer Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders over Winfrey by 9 percentage points, and former President Joe Biden over Winfrey by a stunning 23 percentage points.

The only way Winfrey would win a Democrat primary election would be if she were to go up against New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, whom she’d beat by 21 points, or Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, whom she’d defeat by four points.

But against men like Sanders and Biden, she’d lose massively, which is odd given the Democrats’ constant, hypocritical cries for female empowerment.

Would you vote for Oprah over Trump?

Of course, being in favor of female empowerment doesn’t mean one must vote for a woman, but that’s not what the Democrats said during the 2016 election.

“There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other,” former Secretary of State State Madeleine Albright, a die-hard supporter of Clinton, announced at a campaign event in early 2016, months before the Democrat National Convention.

Notorious feminist Gloria Steinem likewise “called on young women who supported Mr. Sanders to essentially grow up and get with the program,” according to a report from The New York Times published around the same time.

Yet after Clinton clinched the Democrat nomination with a victory over Sanders, she lost to Trump in the general election, due in part to the votes of white women.

“Clinton lost the votes of white women overall and struggled to win women voters without a college education in states that could have propelled her to victory,” Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight revealed after the election.

Speaking last year with Kelsy Kretschmer, an assistant professor at Oregon State University and a co-author of a study examining women’s voting patterns during the 2016 election, one of these white women revealed “that she had voted for (Trump) over Clinton because her husband’s job depends on the coal industry,” according to The Guardian.

Here’s the kicker: This unnamed woman reportedly identified as a liberal Democrat.

Pieced together, this wide assortment of data — from the recent Politico/Morning Consult poll to Clinton’s poor performance in the 2016 election — suggests that voters, including Democrat voters, care more about electing individuals capable of getting the job done than they do about electing them based on superficial traits such as race or gender.

And that’s really bad news the Democrat Party.

For Oprah, it could be disastrous.
