Oprah Winfrey is More Popular Among American Voters than Donald Trump

Actress and TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey seen here posing with the Cecil B De Mille Award during the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday delivered a rousing speech that has Democrats talking about her running for president in 2020

"For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men", Winfrey said, leading to a standing ovation.

"Right, because it's clear that you don't need government experience to be elected president of the United States", Rubenstein said. 'She would absolutely do it'.

CNN, citing two of her close friends, reported on Monday that the television and movie producer and actress was actively thinking about making a White House bid.

In some ways, a Winfrey candidacy isn't that far fetched at a time in which a reality show star worked his way into the White House, shattering numerous norms along the way.

Yet if a hypothetical presidential head-to-head was held today, 50 percent of national registered voters said they would vote in Winfrey as a Democrat.

In fact, Trump knows her so well he named Oprah as his ideal running partner back in 1999 on Larry King Live.

"I did not think they would be talking about it in presidential terms", King said on CBS This Morning of Oprah's speech, as People notes.

However, the new poll suggests 48 per cent of likely USA voters would opt for Winfrey if she did enter the fray, compared to 38 per cent who said they would vote for Mr Trump.

It's nearly like she thinks America should elect somebody with experience in politics. "Their time is up!" she shouted to a standing ovation. "That's how he interpreted the question", King said. "She wanted it to be a uniting speech". Of course, I love Oprah like everybody else.

The tweet on the network's account came in the wake of jokes by Meyers about the possibility of Winfrey running for office.

World-renowned singer Seal slammed Oprah Winfrey on social media just days after her much-praised speech at the Golden Globe awards, which centered on sexual misconduct in Hollywood.

Winfrey, Cillizza pointed out, represents the "new and unique", and her cultural influence justifies the "massive amount of attention" she's received in the wake of the Golden Globes. She's a very good writer. I do think that. Meryl Streep, a Democrat who supported Hillary Clinton, wants Winfrey to run. "At the same time, politics is ridiculous right now".
