If Oprah Ran For President, Would She Beat Trump? New Poll Reveals Shocking Results

If one wealthy entrepreneur and reality star can make it to the White House, why not another? This is the thought behind Oprah Winfrey's new confession: she's actually considering throwing her hat into the ring for the 2020 election. Does she stand a chance against President Donald Trump? Let's just say 'The Donald' might have something to worry about.

It's not a new idea for Oprah to run; her fans have long called for her to go into politics. Oprah herself has admonished such comments, but it seems after Trump's win, she's having a change of heart.

“I thought, ‘Oh, gee, I don’t have the experience, I don’t know enough!’” is what Winfrey says she used to say when asked if she'd consider running for president.

After Trump's unlikely win, she says, “Now I’m thinking, ‘Oh. Oh.’”

Trump and Oprah have a few things in common: they're both reality stars, they're both highly successful businesspeople, and they both have written best-selling books.

One thing they do not have in common, however, is likability. Oprah is viewed way more favorably by the public than Trump is.

According to a new Public Policy Polling survey, 49 percent of people polled have a favorable view of Oprah, while only 33 percent view her unfavorably.

Trump, on the other hand, was viewed favorably by only 41 percent; he was viewed unfavorably by a whopping 52 percent of people polled.

When PPP asked registered voters whether they'd vote for Trump or Oprah in a hypothetical election, Oprah got 47 percent of the support, while Trump got only 40 percent. Some 12 percent of voters said they were unsure how they would vote.

The Democratic Party might want to take note-- it was Oprah's support for President Barack Obama that helped him edge out his primary opponent Hillary Clinton. If just a good word from Oprah can land someone in the White House, why shouldn't she go for it herself?
