Could Oprah Beat Trump in 2020? This Poll is a First Clue.

Would Oprah Winfrey, the former TV host and current businesswoman and philanthropist, beat Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election?

A new poll says yes.

NPR, PBS NewsHour, and Marist asked national registered voters: “If the 2020 election for president were held today, whom would you support if the candidates are: [1] Oprah Winfrey, the Democrat … [2] Donald Trump, the Republican”?

The results:

Oprah wins overall, 50-39. She wins Democrats, 91-4, and liberals, 87-6, which is not surprising.

But Oprah also has a strong pull with independents (46-37) and moderates (59-25).

She’s currently winning every region of the country, both income levels, and college grads and non-college grads.

One question, at least for now appears, settled: would Oprah win a presidential election against Donald Trump? If the election were today, it appears so.

The big question that no poll can settle: will Oprah actually run?
