The Rock researched the possibility of running for President of the United States, what did he find?
There have been informal discussions about former WWE Champion Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who could run for President of the United States for a few years now, but The Rock recently revealed that he did so. minus some research on a possible candidacy for the nation’s highest office.
Rock, who has teased a possible run in previous years, was recently featured by Chris Heath for a Vanity Fair cover story, and the topic of possible entry into politics has come up. Rock said he found the idea humiliating and revealed that he had spoken to people in politics and had done “a small amount of research and analysis to see where it came from and what it might look like. in the future”.
Rock noted how his research found that “the indicators are all very positive – for example in 2024 and, for example, in 2028”.
Rock would not rule out the possibility of running for office, and although he has admitted that he doesn’t know the first thing about politics, he cares deeply about the country.
“You know, at the end of the day, I don’t know anything about politics,” he said. “I don’t know the first thing about politics. I care deeply about our country. I care about all the fucking Americans bleeding red, and that’s it. And – there’s no illusion here – I might have some decent leadership qualities, but that doesn’t necessarily make me a great presidential candidate. This is where I am today.
We noted in April how a poll had 46% of Americans saying they would support The Rock’s candidacy for president. He got a better poll than any other potential candidate, including Oprah Winfrey, Angelina Jolie, Oprah Winfrey and Matthew McConaughey, who is reportedly running for governor of Texas.
The Rock responded to the poll in April and wrote on Twitter: “Not sure our founding fathers ever considered a six-four, bald, tattooed, half-black, half-Samoan, drinking tequila, driving a van, carrying a fanny pack guy joining their club – but if that ever happens it would be my honor to serve people “
