Speculation around Oprah Winfrey's intentions to potentially run for president have been running rampant since her remarks at the Golden Globes on Sunday, but according to a new poll, most Americans don't think she should run. 

The new survey conducted by PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist found that 54 percent of adults and registered voters in the United States think she shouldn't run for president in 2020. A third said she should run for president in the next election, while another 11 percent said they didn't know.

The poll involved 1,350 adult participants and was conducted from January 8 to January 10.

While most don't want to see her run, the same surveys suggests that she would win if she were running against President Donald Trump. The poll found 50 percent would back Winfrey, whereas only 39 percent would vote for Trump and 11 percent were unsure. 

A number of celebrities and even some of those from Winfrey's inner circle have spoken out about her intentions since her remarks on Sunday, including her longtime partner who said she would "absolutely do it.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders addressed the rumors this week, saying Winfrey would be welcomed to the race should she choose to run.

Trump has expressed confidence that he would emerge victorious.

“Yeah, I’ll beat Oprah," he said on Tuesday. 

He also shared kind words about Winfrey, saying he knows her “very well” and “likes” her. The two have been friends for a number of years, and he said in 1999 that she would be his first choice for a running mate if he did run for president.

"Oprah. I love Oprah. Oprah would always be my first choice," Trump told Larry King in the interview. "If she'd do it, she’d be fantastic. I mean, she's popular, she’s brilliant, she’s a wonderful woman. I mean, if she would ever do it. I don’t know that she would ever do it. She’s got, you know. She would be sort of like me."
