If Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson does indeed run for U.S. President as he’s hinted he might, he nearly has all the votes needed to win already … at least based on a new poll.
The former WWE superstar turned Hollywood A-lister has the support of 46 percent of adult Americans if he were to make a Presidential run in 2024 … according to a recent online poll of 30,138 potential voters between April 2 and April 4.
The same poll found 29 percent would support dual campaigns by The Rock for POTUS and Matthew McConaughey for Texas Governor … something the actor’s also suggested he’s considering.
Other notable poll results include 30% support for Angelina Jolie for Prez, 27% for Oprah … and a shockingly low 22% for Tom Hanks.
Overall though, nearly 2 out of 3 adults polled said they believe celebs make good politicians if they have a good team and possess “political aptitude.”
As ridiculous as that may seem to some, it also makes sense. Ex-Prez Donald Trump still has major support in the Republican party, and several other past Hollywood stars went on to make big political splashes … Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jesse Ventura, Al Franken and Ronald Reagan, just to name a few.
As for the Rock … he’s been floating the idea of a White House run since 2016, and added fuel to the fire on ‘Ellen’ in 2017 and ‘The Late Show’ in 2018 by continuing to say he’s seriously considering it.
More recently, he told a reporter he’d run for POTUS “if that’s what the people wanted.” Well, Rock … it looks like you have your answer.
