Does Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson plan on running for President of the United States?
The Rock was trending on social media over the weekend after a poll conducted by Piplsay found that almost half of the survey participants would approve of the former wrestler running for office. Forty-six percent of the 30,138 American adults surveyed, approved of his run for The White House and/or run for Texas Governor.
On Saturday (April 10), he addressed the poll and rumor that he was considering running in the 2024 presidential election via Instagram.
“Not sure our Founding Fathers ever envisioned a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-Black, half-Samoan, tequila drinking, pick up truck driving, fanny pack-wearing guy joining their club – but if it ever happens it’d be my honor to serve the people,” he wrote.
For the last five years, Johnson has been toying with the idea of a political career. In June 2016, he shared an article concerning the fact that he could run for office one day and potentially win.
“I care DEEPLY about our [country]… and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring,” he said at the time. “Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country.”
