Can Oprah Win the Presidential Election in 2020?
Given the long-range trends and short-range trends in play that favor conservative candidates, it is unlikely that she might get elected president. Because of her popularity, her voter intensity would probably be much higher that Hillary Clinton. But, her political stands would make it difficult for her to win.
Given the divided and fragmented Democratic Party, it is possible that she could be nominated by the Democratic Party. She might also secure a nomination from a third party as well.
But, it highly improbable that she will be elected president in 2020.
