Oprah Winfrey Wins US Presidency in Hypothetical Race Against Trump

But when asked if they wanted Winfrey to run in 2020, only 35 percent said yes.

Wow, it looks like "a new day is on the horizon!"

Speculation about Winfrey as a potential Democratic Party candidate in 2020 was revived after her rousing speech on January 7 at the Golden Globes, where she was honored with a special award.

In a new interview with The Guardian, Steven Spielberg says he's all for Winfrey possibly coming for the White House.

REPORTER: Hey, can you beat Oprah by the way?

"I think Oprah Winfrey would make an absolutely brilliant president", the Oscar-winning director told the Guardian on Thursday.

"Oprah would be a lot of fun, I know her very well, you know I did one of her last shows".

Along with thanking those closest to her, Winfrey thanked the press for their dedication in uncovering the truth and exposing corruption in our society.

Oprah explained that she had seen the Sidney Poitier win a Golden Globe and how it had impacted her life.

No, I like Oprah. "So I think we are not outlandish in thinking about this because I think she's clearly thinking about it".

LINDA MOTTRAM: Donald Trump there.

After the event, throngs of admirers started encouraging the founder of OWN television station to run for president in 2020.

The indications are mixed but what happens if she does?

Oprah Winfrey for President?

But he added: "I don't think she's going to run". Those individuals note that approval ratings tend to crash immediately once an individual announces their intent to run for office, and point to her lack of legislating experience as a potential liability for her.

Meryl Streep also reiterated her support of the idea, stating: "Whether she is leading us to the candidate we need of whether she herself is a candidate, she sets the bar pretty high on campaign talk".

And the most important question of all: Could she actually be a good president? Just as it is declared in the campaign, she too announced that time is up.

"Right now, Oprah's about 11:1, but keep in mind when Donald Trump ran he was 60:1 facing 16 opponents", he said.

We can infer from the various things that she's done over the past couple of decades that she's very much a conventional liberal. Her major impact to date was her May 2007 endorsement of candidate Barack Obama - at a time when Hillary Clinton was the odds-on favorite to win the Democratic nomination. - I thought it sounded nearly like a campaign speech.
