CNN bet all their chips on turning their network into a 24 hour-a-day anti-Trump propaganda mill.

The last piece of the puzzle was settling on a candidate to defeat Trump in 2020.

They drooled over the prospect of Oprah taking him on, but one new poll showed they made a massive mistake.

A survey conducted by Morning Consult showed that voters aren’t cool to the idea of Oprah running for President.

Most Americans – and even most Democrats – don’t think Oprah should run for President.

And if she did run, she would be in a statistical tie with Trump.

But there is no guarantee she would even make a general election.

She trails both Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in the Democrat primary and holds a margin of error lead over Elizabeth Warren.

Politico reports:

“Americans love Oprah Winfrey. But they aren’t exactly clamoring for the media mogul and former talk-show host to challenge President Donald Trump in 2020.

A majority of voters across several polls don’t think Winfrey should run for the White House, according to polls conducted since Winfrey’s much-heralded speech at a Hollywood awards show launched a round of presidential speculation. Even among Democratic voters, more say she shouldn’t run for president than should…

…The topline result from the POLITICO/Morning Consult poll: Winfrey would lead Trump by 2 percentage points in a head-to-head matchup, 40 percent to 38 percent. More than one-in-five voters, 22 percent, are undecided.

Among Democrats, Winfrey would lead Trump, 73 percent to 9 percent. Trump has a similar advantage among Republicans, 76 percent to 11 percent. Independents tilt slightly toward Winfrey, 35 percent to 30 percent, with another 35 percent undecided…

… But Winfrey trails both Biden, 54 percent to 31 percent, and Sanders, 46 percent to 37 percent — two of Democrats’ best-known possible candidates.”

CNN – and on-air personality Brian Stelter in particular – was hardest hit with this news.

Stelter spent the aftermath of Oprah’s appearance at the Golden Globes tweeting about her potential candidacy and relentlessly promoting her on the air.

Do you think CNN looks ridiculous for promoting Oprah for President?
