Poll: Majority don't want Oprah to run

Polls split: Would Oprah win?

For doing absolutely nothing. I fear that the same people who thought a failed businessman and a reality show host would be able to work in the complex environs of our government might want to try again. She spoke of the importance of the industry that Trump attacks nearly daily, saying, "It is the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and injustice; to tyrants and victims and secrets and lies".

Yet others slammed him for backtracking. They slavishly followed his every move, magnified his every dumb quote.

Would the electorate be ready to put not just another television star but another political outsider in the White House?

Numerous average Trump voters didn't know, or care, what Donald Trump's economic or foreign policy was - it's a fair statement that Trump didn't know either, but that's a story for another time. Her appeal extended well beyond her celebrity, some said, citing her compassion, kindness and devotion to helping others as a badly needed change after Trump. "He'll fire them all!"

In the front-page article in USA Today, Nicole Guadiano began by saying: "If Oprah Winfrey has her eye on the Democratic presidential nomination, she [could] be hard to beat".

Nancy Pelosi: 'Five White Guys' Are Working on Immigration Reform
Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer was the order of the day as the California Democrat conducted her weekly press briefing. Pelosi said exactly, 180 degree opposite of that idiotic statement. "I think it's insignificant ", she added.

The headline of the editorial: "Could Oprah Out-Trump Donald?" She emanates trust, compassion and level-headedness. Decades of experience as a journalist, author and public speaker give her a powerful weapon in any race against an incumbent whose greatest strength is plainspoken communication with voters and a ring of unpolished authenticity and confidence.

Trump's numbers in a potential matchup with Winfrey, who launched Oprahmentum with a stirring speech at Sunday night's Golden Globes, fall in line with his mostly dire approval ratings, which, according to Gallup, was at 37% last week. One might even say "stable".

Six months later, Winfrey tweeted to her 41 million followers a link to a New York Post editorial that trumpeted her as the Democrats' best hope of beating Trump in 2020. 'Seems your wife has been palling around with him a lot more than Oprah has....' they said. Oprah does come across as completely sound of mind, which is not something you can say about Trump with any real confidence. "If she knew years ago she should have stepped up and been a true icon", agreed one Instagram user. "Of a presidency, some joked, where everybody would get a auto". Her charisma and intellect displayed throughout her speech proved to be an inspiration to those who may be going through rough times. They are there. On both sides.

From a Christian worldview perspective, the possibility of an Oprah candidacy opens up all kinds of moral and political and policy issues to be sure, but the concern about the celebrification of the culture, that's probably the more important issue.
