TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Marianne Williamson is not well known, but she is resonating with some voters.
Williamson came out of left field when she announced she is running for President. She is a best-selling author and a spiritual advisor to people like Oprah Winfrey. Williamson has laid out what she would like to do as President.
On The Issues
Williamson is all about getting to the root of the problem. Like most Democratic candidates, she wants to create a universal healthcare system. But she doesn’t want it to end there. She wants to make changes within the chemical, agricultural, and environmental industries. By doing so, she is hoping to solve the root of health problems.
To help solve environmental issues, there are a couple of solutions Williamson is in favor of. She wants to bring the US back into the Paris Climate Accords. She also supports the popular Green New Deal. By implementing these two plans, she wants to take on the fossil fuel industry.
Williamson has a different plan than the other candidates when it comes to education reform. She wants to create a universal preschool system for all children. This is part of her main plan for education. She is also interested in student debt forgiveness. There is no exact plan for it yet, but she wants her cabinet to explore options to make that happen.
Like most other Democratic candidates, Williamson supports raising the minimum wage. She wants to increase the minimum wage to a living wage depending on where a worker lives. Williamson also wants to adjust the minimum wage to match inflation.
The Odds Are Against Her
Although Marianne Williamson is a different kind of candidate, she is not making a strong impression. So far, Williamson has been struggling to gain name recognition with Democratic voters. You can see that on the odds boards.
On BetOnline, Williamson has +15000 odds of becoming the Democratic nominee. Marianne Williamson also has +25000 odds of winning the 2020 Presidential elections. On both fronts, Williamson has the least favorable odds of becoming the next President. These election odds could change in the July debates. If she makes a big enough impact, she could move up on the odds boards.
