Oprah Delivered Over a Million Voters to Obama Campaign

Oprah Winfrey doesn't rule just yet, but she does control more than 1 million American voters.

That's how many ballots she delivered to her favorite presidential candidate, Barack Obama, in the primaries, according to two University of Maryland economists who claim they figured out a way to precisely determine Oprah's impact. The economists, Craig Garthwaite and Tim Moore, developed complex numerical formulas to calibrate the might of Oprah's star power, based on book sales, TV ratings, voter turnout and other factors, to determine that she put 1,015,519 votes in the Obama column.
