How About No: Voters Reject Oprah for President

Hollywood types and the media went absolutely wild for the idea that Oprah Winfrey might challenge Donald Trump for the presidency in 2020, but the average American voters isn’t that excited about the prospect. In a poll taken this week by Politico and Morning Consult, only 38% of registered voters say they want to see the former talk show queen make a run for the White House.

Oprah launched a media frenzy at the Golden Globes – not by announcing that she was in any way interested in running for president, but merely by giving an acceptance speech that hammered the #MeToo point home on a night dedicated to the movement. For some reason, the fact that Oprah was alive and present and giving a speech at the show was enough to lead many celebrities, including Meryl Streep (hell, including NBC) to start hashtagging their Twitter posts with #Oprah2020.

But if the excitement was too much to handle out in Hollyweird, there was a less than enthusiastic echo in the liberal blogosphere. Several bloggers noted Oprah’s long flirtation with scientific quackery – Dr. Oz, the anti-vaccine movement, etc. Others said she was not nearly as divorced from Harvey Weinstein’s culpability as her high-and-mighty speech might have made it sound. Still others lamented the fact that America was considering yet another billionaire celebrity for president instead of looking for someone with actual political experience.

Alas, Democrat voters may not be jumping for joy over the thought of Oprah as nominee, but they do indeed view her more favorably than most of the other potential candidates. Whether that speaks to Oprah’s name recognition or the Democrats’ weak bench is for someone else to decide.

From Politico:

Democratic voters actually prefer Winfrey to some of the party’s potential 2020 candidates. Winfrey would lead Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) in a head-to-head primary matchup, 39 percent to 35 percent. And she has a big lead over Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), 44 percent to 23 percent.

But Winfrey trails both Biden, 54 percent to 31 percent, and Sanders, 46 percent to 37 percent — two of Democrats’ best-known possible candidates.

Overall, most voters like Winfrey personally. A 54 percent majority of voters have a favorable opinion of Winfrey, including more than three-quarters of Democrats.

“Oprah’s strong standing among Democrats does not translate to a clear interest in her launching a presidential campaign,” said Kyle Dropp, the co-founder and chief research officer of Morning Consult.

All of this is somewhat academic unless Oprah actually makes a move towards running, which she has not yet done. But it shows that even on the left, there is a considerable divide between what the Hollywood crowd thinks is the right direction for the country and what actual, on-the-ground voters believe.

  1. They didn’t make this kind of fuss when she opened her first “Oprah’s Hot Spuds” restaurant in Chicago.

    I guess they fully support springing her (literally) on the American People in 2020…

  2. I’m pretty sure if you don’t vote for the Op you will be called vile names like racist & sexist…that ought to get everyone to vote for the Op…right?

  3. Of course DEMOCOMMUNISTS love oprah…she is “best buds” with OSCUMBAG and HITLERY. All I see her as, is a High-priced “madame”, that brought young girls to harvey (the rapist) weinstein. (and there are pictures to prove it as well as reports of her bringing women to “him” and sucking face with him ) HOW FREAKING SICK. Typical DEMOCOMMUNIST

    • Pappy it must have been a tremendous promotion for you to get on with the IRA there in St Petersburg Russia considering your previous job was giving old men 3 Ruble BJs there in the slums of St Petersburg. You had better be carful when you get old and sloppy Putin will do to you what Caligula did to his little wigglers when he got tired of them.

    • You hit the scumbags on the head with every blow of the truth hammer.

  4. angelo cucuzza,jr

    Wasn’t one black, country destroying pla—-n blackie, snake-oil community organizer enough for MY COUNTRY? ENOUGH,ALREADY.

  5. I sure hope Oprah does not run for President. She is not the right person for the job. If she did win, she would be a typical NWO puppet (she praised the mainstream press)and her talking points would be identity politics. No real populist change.

  6. The deal with Ms Winfrey is that she actually reads books and is attentive to current affairs. Mr. Trump seems lacking here. He would prefer to call everything not flattering to himself personally to be so-called fake news, when in fact the new is true. I am waiting for the rosy promises he made to the American people to come to fruition. So far I’ve seen hatred spewing from his mouth. He denies it, but the evidence is there.

    • Some of those promises already have! Dimdumb.

      • One important thing he did was to give free rein to develop our national part, this turning them into pollution factories. And then there’s the budget thing which might cause thousands of people to lose their health insurance. Perhaps someone you know is among them. Then there’s the name-calling about other nations being shit holes. Most helpful in these times of international tension.

        • How much did you or any Democrat actually give to these countries when they needed it! That was years ago, and Trump,has continued to be giving and caring! The one thing I fail to get in your post….what is the exact reference to our national part??? As a member if the National Parks a Federation I am just curious? Smartest thing Trump could do right now is take a Teddy Roosevelt Tour and Stance!

        • Kind of sad how much money the medical profession charges. I remember my dad paying for two or more of us out of his own pocket. Now you have to take out a second mortgage just to pay the insurance deductions.

        • Patricia Winstead

          and what good have these people done for our country besides living off our taxes. I am sick and tired giving out our money to people that Hate Us. That right I said hate. Did you see the Illegals wrap in Mexican flags well they Burn our United States Flag I say Get Rid of them. Send them back over the border!!! Build the Wall HIGH!!! so Yes Shit Holes!

          • Our imigrant relatives that came here got nothing & survived. These people are using us & we are paying 50 to 100 BILLION $$$$$ per yr to support them when we have our own people that we need to help. Sounds stupid doesnt it ?. How many Americans want this ???

        • those nations are the shitholes that breed muslims that want to kill christians you are welcome to live there anytime you want

        • Richard, Are you still living in Moms Basement? I hope not because it sounds like she is still giving you the used Bird cage NYT news papers to read. maybe that’s all you want to read because you have do it for the past 35 years.

    • Richard B You are obviously not much a judge of character., Butbrun her with Harvey Weinstein and you will have a match!

    • Get a haircut and grow up. 60 yr.old hippie burn out.

  7. If her career is so important to her that she refused to marry her boyfriend of 30 years how is she going to handle being president? She can’t.

  8. Damn…I hope Oppie runs…I sure could use a new car….Hey Oppie…How bout it?????

  9. More unless chub for the base aka PND “users”…PND it’s like a bad drug…

    REX, when are you going to write about something of consequence?…loser.

  10. Maybe Oprah can pick Harvey Weinstein as her running mate. After all, we’ve all seen pictures of Oprah hugging and kissing (or is it groping?) Harvey.

  11. This is what Obama has done to our country!

  12. “NMN”

  13. Give it up Oprah. The White House doesn’t fit you. You belong right where you are – to help the little guy, not add another nail to the Cross obama hung America on.

  14. I KNOW I’VE HAD ALL THE BLACK PRESIDENTS FOR A LIFE TIME. A BLACK POLITICAL JUST CAN’T KEEP FROM USING THE RACE CARD EVERY TIME THEY WANT TO GET THEIR WAY ON SOMETHING. OBLOWZO DID THE SAME THING – EVERY TIME HE HAD SOME THING TO PROMOTE HE HAD A ROOM FULL OF THEM HANGING AROUND WITH THEIR SILLY HATS ETC. TO ME THE AMOUNT OF BLACKS SHOULD OF BE TO THEIR % OF THE OVERALL POPULATION. OVER 8 YEARS OUR TV COMMERCIALS GOT TO ALMOST 80 PERCENT BLACK. WHERE IT SHOULD OF BE 12 % OF THEM BEING BLACK AND THE REST MADE UP OF THE PERCENTAGES OF THE AMERICAN POPULOUS. I WAS WATCHING TV SEVERAL NIGHTS AGO AND THERE WAS 7 OF THE COMMERCIALS IN A ROW THAT WERE BLACK. BUT THAT GIVE ME A BIT LONGER TO GO THE RESTROOM AND HIT THE FRIDGE FOR A SNACK AND LET THE DOG OUT TO WHIZZ ALSO. I DON’T BUY ANY OF THE PRODUCTS THEY ARE HAWKING- I DO NOT REWARD THEM FOR THEIR DESTRUCTION OF THE AMERICAN CITIES AND LOOTING AND BURNING OF BUSINESSES. SO, YOU SPONSORS THINK THAT WE ARE NOT NOTICING YOUR PUSHING THE BLACK COMMERCIALS – THINK AGAIN- I HOPE YOUR BOTTOM LINE GOES DOWN FOR REWARDING THEIR TERROR TACTICS ON THE US. SO, WHEN YOU SPONSORS MAKE A BLACK COMMERCIAL THAT DEPICTS THE MILLIONAIRE STATUS OF THEM ON THE SCREEN -JUST REMEMBER WE ARE THE FOOLS IN THIS PICTURE. WHEN IN REALITY IT SHOULD BE A DRUG DEALER ON THE CORNER- A PIMP IN A CADDY WITH A FUR COAT IN THE DEAD MIDDLE OF SUMMER OR ANOTHER BABY DADDY CLIMBING THROUGH AN OPEN WINDOW TO MAKE ANOTHER BABY FOR THE TAX PAYER TO PAY FOR. KEEP ON MAKING YOUR BLACK MILLIONAIRE STATUS COMMERCIALS WHICH WE ALL KNOW IS PURE BS.

    • Hey,
      Your CAPS must be stuck.

    • So Just what is your feelings on the Monkey and Ape in High Heels in the W.H. for 8 VERY LONG years

      • HEHE JUST THAT!!

        • good one,, lol, lol nailed them.

          • I HAVE BEEN AROUND A LONG TIME- EVER SINCE I CAN REMEMBER IN MY LIFE I HAVE ALWAYS SEE THE BLACK POPULATION WANT SOMETHING FOR NOTHING- LIKE THE WHITE AMERICAN TAX PAYERS OWE THEM FREE EVERYTHING. THE CURRENT PEOPLE WALKING ON THIS EARTH DID NOTHING TO THEM- WE WERE NOT EVEN THOUGHT OF YET- BUT STILL THEY THINK THAT WE NEED TO PAY THEM FOR THEIR ANCESTRY’S HARD TIMES DURING SLAVERY DAYS. IF IT WERE NOT FOR THE SLAVERY DAYS – WE WOULD NOT BE HAVE OUR CITIES BURNED- LOOTED WHEN THEY DECIDE THEY WANT MORE ON THE WELFARE CHECKS. I THINK THEY NEED TO THANK AMERICA FOR GIVING THEM A PLACE TO STAY. IF NOT THEY WOULD OF BEEN TAKEN BACK ON BOATS AND DROWNED IN THE CARIBBEAN BY THE SLAVE TRADE OWNERS. THEY WERE A COMMODITY AND IT GREW INTO AN ABILITY TO STAY IN THIS COUNTRY FREE. IT WAS UP TO THEM TO MAKE IT IN THIS COUNTRY- AND RIGHT TODAY THEY STILL THINK WE THE AMERICAN WHITE CITIZENRY OWE THEM MONEY FOR THEIR ANCESTRY’S HARDSHIPS. THATS JUST WRONG- THEY WERE NOT HERE EITHER- IT WAS THE POOR SLOBS THAT ENDURED THE SLAVERY DAYS THAT SHOULD OF BEEN PAID FOR THE PROBLEMS-IF AT ALL. AFTER ALL THESE YEARS SINCE SLAVERY HAS BEEN GONE – THEY ARE ONLY 12% OF THE AMERICAN POPULOUS- ITS NOT OUR PROBLEM BECAUSE THEY HAVE MADE WRONG DECISIONS IN EDUCATION- EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE FREE COLLEGE. I AS A WHITE AMERICAN CAN’T GET FREE COLLEGE- MY CHILDREN DID FREE COLLEGE. THEY ARE STILL PAYING THEIR STUDENT LOANS EVERY MONTH LIKE CLOCKWORK. ONE IS A MSGT IN THE AIRFORCE – ONE IS AN HR SENIOR AT 31 YEARS OLD AND SHE EMPLOYED BY A NATIONAL FIRM AT 100,000 A YEARS WITH BONUSES- THE OTHER IS AN RN AND MAKES ABOUT 70 K PER YEAR. ALL 3 NEVER GOT A FOODSTAMP- A FREE PHONE- A CHECK FOR HOUSING- OR ANY FREE STUFF GIVEN TO THE BLACKS WHICH YELL AND SCREAM FOR MORE AND MORE EVERYDAY. THEY HAVE MORE THAN THE SAME CHANCE THAT MY KIDS AND I DID AND WE DID IT BECAUSE WE WENT TO SCHOOL EVERYDAY. WE SHOWED UP AND SOME OF THE EDUCATION RUBBED OFF ON ALL OF US.
            I GATHERED ALL 3 KIDS ON A CONFERENCE CALL LAST WEEK AND TOLD HEM MY WIFE AND I WE GOING TO PAY OFF THEIR COLLEGE LOANS- ALL THREE ASK US NOT TO- BECAUSE THEY SAID IT WAS THEIR DEBT AND THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO DO THAT FOR THEMSELVES. MY WIFE AND I SOLD ALL OF OUR BUSINESS STORES IN MISSOURI AND MOVED BACK TO OUR HOME STATE OF TEXAS. WOW, I WAS SHOCKED AT WHAT THEY ALL SAID ALMOST AT ONCE. THAT SHOWED ME WE HAD DONE A NICE JOB OF RAISING SOME NOT WHITE OR BLACK JUST CITIZENS TO TAKE CARE OF THEIR FAMILIES ALL ON THEIR OWN. THEY ALL LIVE IN HOMES FROM 350K TO 500K AND THE OLDEST GIRL OWNS 3000 ACRES IN THE UPPER HILL COUNTRY OF TEXAS. HAS AN EXOTIC HUNTING RANCH THERE WITH A HUNTERS CAMP.
            IF NONE OF THEM WOULD NOT HAVE THEIR FINANCES RIGHT- AND I HAD SAID I WAS GOING TO PAY OFF THEIR DEBTS. THEY STILL WOULD OF TURNED THUMBS DOWN ON THE DEAL. THEY MADE WHO THEY ARE ALL ON THEIR OWN- DID NOT GET ON DRUGS OR SELL DRUGS- HAVE A DOZEN KIDS BY A DOZEN DIFFERENT FATHERS AND KNOW HOW TO READ AND WRITE AND KNOW HOW THE USE THE WORD ASKED INSTEAD OF AXXED- OR MONTH FOR MONT. IF YOU CAN’T SPEAK IN AN ENGLISH DIALECT FOR A COMPANY’S CUSTOMERS TO HEAR- THEN YOUR PRETTY MUCH LEFT TO WORKING AS A YARD MAN OR JANITOR INSTEAD OF AN EXECUTIVE MAKING A 110K A YEAR. THESE DECISIONS MADE THE BLACK COMMUNITY DEPENDENT ON THE AMERICAN TAX PAYERS. AND ITS NOT THE WHITE AMERICANS FAULT!!

  15. I saw a preview of her last movie with a Reese Witherspoon and that as far as I could go without getting seriously ill! She simply is a fat self absorbed woman who should just continue to exploit the masses, Presidential material she is NOT!

    • Sharon Helms-Dulin

      “Self-absorbed”, “Continue to exploit the masses”, “Presidential material she is NOT!” You nailed it. Perfect description of Democrats today, including that egotistical, overrated, privileged purveyor of putrid pablum to dingbats who worship her. Pass the barf bags!

  16. Patricia Winstead

    I’ve decided no Comment!!! I would not vote for someone who hates Whites, Plus I can’t stand to look at That for 4 Years.Obama evil Snake and Killary who try to destroy America, I’m waiting till they are in Jail, Trump is doing a Great Job!!! Media hates him Congress anti Americans who puts Illegals before Americans hate him WHY cause He is standing beside America and what she Stands for and what our Fathers Die for. Congress needs to GO!!! Oprah is a Hostess behind the camera, she know nothing about Good old America, she need to stay a Hostess what she is good at. I guess I did have something to say after all.

  17. Very limited talent who just happened to be in the right place at the right time. Give her credit for putting in the hours, expending the energy, knowing how to impress & get along with people, keeping herself pretty much squeaky clean, & being smart enough to at least appear to be humble & friendly.

    I don’t know what kind of person she really is, nor how gifted or qualified or bright. No one knows what anyone else really thinks, only what they say & do. She has undeniably had some great press agents & financial advisers, & she knew who to listen to & then was smart enough to actually listen.

    The sad thing is that identity politics has reached such a low now that Barack Obama, MLK, & Oprah have become greater icons for many than George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, & Abraham Lincoln. We all have the right to our own opinions, but I’m just not seeing the equivalence.

  18. Carol Juliano Popp

    Oprah is just as corrupt as the rest of the Hollywood perverts.

  19. Oh great! another black socialist who has a better way of spending our money than we do.

  20. The Hawaiian Official who certified Barry’s Hawaiian birth certificate – Loretta Fuddy – was a member of a small cult called SUBUD. Coincidentally so was Barry’s momma Stanley Ann Dunham. This small cult originated in Indonesia and has it’s U.S. headquarters in of all places – Chicago. OPRAH WINFREY teaches SUBUD and George Soros funds SUBUD. Irregardless of what Barry’s Hawaiian birth certificate says or how many can be produced – When Stanley Ann Dunham became an Indonesian citizen – as a minor by default so did Barry. Then Barry was legally adopted by Lolo Soetoro – making him LEGALLY in the eyes of the world Barack Soetoro and an Indonesian citizen. Can anyone produce any other LEGAL documents to show or prove where his name or nationality was ever LEGALLY changed again?

    • NOPE or he would have showed it. his entire life is a FRIGGING LIE

      • I think he was a plant. He was planted in the Senate and then in the White House. I thought it from first time i heard him say anything. I thought,,no way our government is going to allow an uneducated, street hood, drug using, drug dealer, in our white house, He didn’t have the sense or education of a 3rd grader. But they did and groomed him a little bit and paid him very well, to do as he was told. And the effects of him being president, is still affecting our country and will for awhile.

        • oh I know he was a plant. the Left & Soros planted him to destroy our country, The NWO was supposed to be able to waltz in after Hitlery was elected and we would be just another 3rd world country within a year. NO ONE in this country is as NON Existent as BHO or what ever his name really is. the fact that he still tries to spout off and acts like he is President shows that he is protected by the LEFT.

          • You;re right. And they all thought Hillery would finish us, with obamas help, among the other ones involved in their plans. God, i hate to think what would be going on now, if hillery had got in. God had a hand in that election, cause it was rigged to the hilt for her. You could see it plain as day on her face when she lost. She cursed everybody out and yelled, ‘where the hell is my votes?’ She ranted and raved and yelled. She was mad as heck. She believed somebody betrayed her and didn’t rig the votes to her like they were paid to do. Thank goodness their plan failed.

          • Well if she had gotten into the WH there would have been an armed uprising like the world has NEVER before seen. there would be blood in every street in every state in the country. there would be no stopping it until EVERYONE on one side was dead. Every Politician would be Hung in the streets. every Far Left/ Far Right person wold be killed there would be nothing to stop the masses from trying to save their country from a take over buy the NWO.

          • It would have been bad. I know that much.

  21. The “anti-vaccine movement” is now the updated view of most vaccines. Giving babies vaccines is one reason why more children have autism. But vaccines make a lot of money for stores and doctors, so…

  22. SNUFFER. Loved your description. the best i’ve read in a while.

  23. What the Hollywood crowd thinks is right? Hmmmm. Aren’t these the same people who apparently only stop raping each other long enough to smugly lecture everyone else from the heights of their fake moral superiority? The same people who, when a candidate they didn’t like was elected by millions of their former fans, went into paroxysm of gibbering, drooling rage induced hysteria and started ranting, raving and spewing the same vile hate at those millions they falsely accuse others of in a stunning display of hypocrisy they did not even bother to pretend wasn’t?
    Watched others riot, loot, burn and beat up those who don’t agree with them and tweeted their ‘support’ from the safety of their walled, armed guard protected mansions, even though they claim to hate walls, violence and guns? Gave rousing, entirely false and self righteous speeches from the safety of armed guard protected stages so they didn’t actually have to mingle with the unwashed masses they were lecturing, in which they whipped crowds into the same drooling hysteria and told them to fight entirely imaginary hate with the real thing? Constantly accuse their political opponents of ism’s, phobias, privilege and hate based on nothing but their own accusations while blithely using ism’s, phobias, their own massive privilege and hate to make the clearly false accusations? Make extremely violent threats, hold up severed heads, casually joke about the murder of a political opponent as if his murder would be the funniest thing in the world while still having the nerve, the utter gall to call themselves the tolerant and inclusive ones? This list could go on and on and on and on. Of all the ways the Hollywood crowd has absolutely no right to lecture anyone about anything. Those who live in gigantic glass houses with Olympic swimming pools and illegal maids to clean them have no business throwing stones.

  24. The last time we had a completely incompetent and unqualified presidential candidate, he used the a catchy bumper sticker as a campaign slogan. Just a suggestion, Oprah.

  25. Dear O – keep giving away the cars to people and getting fat……

  26. There are a lot of silly Democrats who would vote for Oprah.

  27. 38% want her to run? Damn, I knew there were moronic idiots out there, but 38%! Where in the hell did this poll take place – in an insane asylum? If she runs, hope she adds WHOOPIE to the ticket as VP (sarcasm for the 38% who would agree).

  28. And who would run for her vice president? Don Rickles?

  29. THAT NIGGER WOULDN’T HAVE A CHANCE!!!!

  30. Oprah running is the best news I’ve heard from Dems in a long time. Not only do I hope she runs but I hope she wins the Democrat nomination. She will then be HUMILIATED in the General Election, thus assuring America of four more years of the MAGA President. Conclusion: If Oprah is the best they can come up with, Trump is assured of re-election!!!

  31. Fat Ho with no brain matter. I hope she runs. I need a good laugh.

  32. Liberalism is a mental disorder.

  33. All the folks who bragged about their free Obama phone would love to have Oprah as president. They figure she would give them a free car. I don’t have to work! I got my Obama Phone and my Oprah Car! Of course, they would be outraged if she did not also provide free gas and free insurance……

  34. So Oprah is number 3, behind crazy Uncle Joe Biden and Commie Bernie Sanders. Two old white flakes and an egotistical talk show host. I hope no one on the Democrat side realizes just how pathetic that really is.

  35. Another DC turd that was given birth to…..
    Give out some more free stuff and you might make it

  36. It disgusts me to watch White women falling all over themselves to worship this fat, ugly affirmative action weather girl who got lucky because the Marxists thought it was time to have a negro talk show host. This fat pig is a racist through and through and White people should not be idolizing her. When’s the last time you saw a black person gushing over a White celebrity, White athlete, etc.? Never happens.
