Nearly Half the Nation Supports Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson for President, Will He Run?

“Jumanji” star Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was named the No. 1 Reason to Love America by People magazine, and it seems that plenty of the nation’s residents think he should run for President.

A recent poll found that 46% of those surveyed would support the former WWE star if he decides to pursue the title of Commander-In-Chief, and the 49-year-old said it’s a “humbling honor” to be considered for the role.

I love our country to my core and I’m endlessly grateful for the opportunities I’ve had here, as a half-Black, half-Samoan kid being able to work my ass off knowing tenacity opens doors,” he commented. “In a lot of ways, I’m indebted to our great country for it.”

Johnson was quick to note that he is “not a politician nor did I ever have political passions, and quite frankly I’m not sure I even have the patience or resignation to deal with the B.S. that comes with politics and politicians.”

Though he might have to figure out how to. “When 46 percent of Americans say they’re in favor of me becoming president, that forces me to humbly and respectfully stand up, listen and learn.”

He’s no stranger to working hard to attain the unachievable, even in the face of discrimination. “When I wasn’t [in Hawaii], I was usually primarily in the South. And at that time growing up, you run into discrimination. You run into discrimination at the workplace,” he remarked. 

“But I’ve always been of the mindset that I can’t change that and I can’t change the way I look. I was born with this color and who I am and where I’m from. So the best thing that I could do is control the controllables, put in the work with my own two hands, and if someone then continues to choose to discriminate against me, well, that’s on them,” he concluded.

No I’ve seen some of this before, I don’t really see him doing this at this time. Maybe when he gets a little older, in 10 yrs.

Am sure if Johnson would ‘attack’ learning basics of our country and has a decent background of ‘budgeting’, he could do a better job of running the country than it’s being done currently! GO FOR IT!

Yeah, and LeBron James can be his running mate…between the two of them, they’ll at least have a triple digit IQ. I’m actually not sure LeBron can spell IQ.

If the Rock feels so, perhaps he should support true President Donald Trump who had a grand performance record as President as opposed to this idiocy ongoing. Voters SHOULD vote on performance records, not persoal traits or party agendas but they really ARE NOT COLLECTIVELY TOO BRIGHT BECAUSE OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM HAS BEEN A COLLOSSAL FAILURE since the unionization of teachers , fire, police. nursing and federal personnel in 1969! This horror show is the Pavlovian conditioned indoctrinational result. period!The Rock would not be as bad a joke as the current Creepy Joe. a HUGE embarass-ment to us all and a lauging stock to our allies, such as the backstabbing buffoons are, ALWAYS taking advantage of us; because with the lack of leadership since the last election: THEY CAN AND DO!

I love Dwayne Johnson as an actor, but as a politician, not so much. I’ve heard some of his leftist comments and leftist views that most Americans won’t agree with.

The Rock is not a person I would ever consider Voting for President. We don’t need this idiot running for any type of position in our Government. This is not a Hollywood movie were you play a pretend character. This is real life. Anyway this moron voted for Biden and that makes me question his judgement.

We do not believe that “Nearly Half the Nation Supports Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson for President”. I think he would be no better president than he is an actor!

REALLY! Your entitled to your opinion and that’s fine. I have no problem with the “ROCK” as a person or actor. I don’t watch movies or TV. Being President is a whole new ball game. Don’t think he could do so well without scripted lines and direction in the real world like Drooling Joe. Remember Hollweird is SMOKE & MIRRIORS and even they don’t know what they are doing half the time. Trump was the best President we have had since Reagan. None are perfect, but he was doing a lot of good for everybody. Stopping China from bankrupting us like Commie Joe Panty Sniffer is doing. I think these figures are BS FAKE NEWS. Back to your basement and take Sleepy Joe and Toes up Harris with you please!

Americans today are intrigued by personalities, not by Constitutionally educated and knowledgeable people who also display a lot of common sense. “Flashy” dumb as a box of rocks professional politicians are also in the personality classification and people reelect them on that basis alone, even when the politician can’t do a single thing right. Professional politicians perfectly define the old “power corrupts and absolute power absolutely corrupts” definition. Today, we have some who are selling us out to the Chicoms for their own benefit.

I guess i’d like to know how do you know half of Americans today are intrigued by personality? I understand if you don’t like the Rock but to just automatically put him down, his movies down for what reason? I didn’t read anything in this article that he said anything negative about anything or anyone. And this is my point of whats going on now a days. We don’t agree with each other’s opinion so we name call instead of talking. Makes us no better than them. Because believe me I’m getting tired of being called s ‘trumpster’ and made to feel I let down America. Government is doing a good job dividing us. And I don’t mean by just the color of our skin.

46% would support the Rock to run? Are these the same people who thought Obama was a fine candidate, and that Milli Vanilli was a real band? What percent believe Obama’s released birth certificate was real? Yeah, I will never believe another poll, thank you.
