Between making millions and maintaining viewership versus keeping Obama as a friend, Oprah decides to throw the president under the bus.
(Digital Spy) — Oprah Winfrey reportedly does not plan to publicly support Barack Obama in the 2012 US presidential election.
Winfrey supported Obama’s campaign in 2008, holding a highly publicised political rally for him during his presidential challenge.
According to a Gallup poll conducted before the rally, Winfrey’s favourable ratings fell from 74 to 66% while her unfavourable ratings jumped from 17 to 26%.
Her TV show ratings also fell following the event.
A source has told PopEater that Winfrey doesn’t want to do anything to alienate viewers now that she has launched her OWN network.
