64% have a favorable opinion of Oprah while 23% do not.
35% want her to run for President in 2020 while 54% do not.

But if she were the D nominee versus Trump, she wins 50% to 39%.

More of a condemnation of Trump than love for Oprah.

Yeah right. Just wait until Oprah had to actually talk about her vision for America

We already know about Trump’s vision, and it has limited appeal.

Considering this is NPR, a liberal station, I'm not even gonna believe this. Hence, the polls were wrong about Trump's victory. Take it with a grain of salt.

Maybe you will believe it if it's a Rasmussen poll?

"The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters would opt for Winfrey, while 38% would choose Trump. But a sizable 14% are undecided."

Oprah vs. The Donald, and The Winner Is

Considering how inaccurate this poll and many others were, I'm taking any poll with a grain of salt now.

I only trust polls that reinforce with the outcome I desire.

I only like polls that are right 95% of the time... anti-Trump polls are usually 95% wrong...

She is not going to run. But think about this...a black women who grew up in poverty and made a name for herself and worth billions now...versus a millionaire who grew up with a silver spoon in their mouth. My bet is Oprah would win because she would appeal more to the middle class and working poor.

I'm not sure what's so unbelievable about the poll. Trump is deeply unpopular outside his core supporters, and the majority of America wanting someone with actual political experience to be their president again is also quite likely.
NPR is hardly a "liberal" media source, even if most of the people who donate to public radio are. They always give both sides to every story and ask hard questions of politicians from both parties, who they invite as guests in equal share.
