新民调显示美国人大多不希望奥普拉参选总统 New Poll Shows Majority of Americans Do Not Want Oprah to Run for President







A new poll shows that a majority of Americans do not want to see television star Oprah Winfrey run for president, although if she did run, the poll indicates that she could beat President Donald Trump.

The poll by National Public Radio, PBS NewsHour and Marist College found that only 35 percent of voters wanted Oprah to run for president in 2020. Another 54 percent said they did not want her to run and 11 percent said they were unsure.

However, in a hypothetical presidential race between Oprah and Trump, 50 percent of voters said they would vote for Winfrey while 39 percent said they would support Trump. Voters primarily followed party lines with 91 percent of Democrats backing Winfrey and 85 percent of Republicans supporting Trump.

Winfrey gave a speech at Sunday's Golden Globe Awards ceremony that led to intense media speculation about her candidacy in 2020.

Trump said Tuesday he doubted Winfrey would run, but if she did, he would win.

Winfrey, as was the case for Trump before being elected president, has never held public office.
