ATLANTA – CNN sees 2020 as the second coming of Oprah for president. Even Jesus couldn’t beat her. And Trump might as well quit now. That’s the result of the network’s latest poll on possible presidential candidates for the next election cycle.
Anchor Jake Tapper said CNN polled 896 random viewers of their network. The margin of error for the poll was +/- 25%. Digging through the data, some insights among those polled were discovered:
Breakdown by political affiliation of those polled – 55% Democrat, 35% Independent, 10% Republican. This is in line with CNN’s usual polling mix.
79% of Democrats had never heard of Jesus.
91% of those voting for Oprah cited her acting, talk show demeanor, and 12 years of experience as a Navy Seal as their top reasons for wanting her to be the next president.
82% of those listing Oprah as their preference said she should be our next president, even if she doesn’t run.
36% of all respondents said miracles performed by Jesus were impressive, but that he had never given away cars like Oprah has.
9% of the Oprah voters thought she was already president.
Tapper reminded viewers that the poll was highly scientific, and had been certified by the Brian Stelter accounting firm.
