Oprah, president Trump ruined it for ya

This is rich.
Americans love Oprah Winfrey. But they aren’t exactly clamoring for the media mogul and former talk-show host to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.

A majority of voters across several polls don’t think Winfrey should run for the White House, according to polls conducted since Winfrey’s much-heralded speech at a Hollywood awards show launched a round of presidential speculation. Even among Democratic voters, more say she shouldn’t run for president than should...

And despite the persistent disapproval of Trump’s job performance thus far, voters are still open to political neophytes as presidential candidates — though Democratic voters are more likely to say they want candidates with experience in elected office.
The latter paragraph about sums it up; Trump supporters should have no issue with Oprah Winfrey running for president because (a) lack of government experience is not a disadvantage, and perhaps even an asset and (b) she and her liberal policies would lose. The poll itself somewhat validates the latter point. The right would never vote for her, but apparently neither would the left. Democrats, whose policies Oprah would espouse, view president Trump's lack of government experience as a detriment, would as a result tend to lean away from Oprah. Even Oprah's ardent fans probably don't want her going through the meat grinder of presidential politicking.

The result is not surprising, Oprah is not the preferred candidate of the Left, Hollywood excepted.
