- A poll by Piplsay suggested that Dwayne Johnson would be voted president by nearly half of the USA in 2024
- The poll was conducted online among 30 138 adults over two days
- Reacting to the news, the actor thanked people for the faith, noting it would be a pleasure to serve them
A poll released on Tuesday, April 6, by Piplsay has indicated that 46%, nearly half of the US would support Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in a presidential bid.
The renowned actor has hinted at putting his name on the candidate's list for president in 2024.
According to Newsweek, the poll was conducted online among 30k adults in two days and there was no margin of error.
Reacting to the poll, Dwayne went on social media sharing the news and noted it was very humbling. He hilariously described his character, saying it would be an honour to serve the people of America.
"I don’t think 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 honour to serve you, the people," he wrote.
His fans also showed their support on the comment section with some hilariously describing what the White House would look like with him in charge.
Earlier this year, the former wrestler was ecstatic after he was named the world's most likeable person.
The celebrity had a profile written about him which stated that The Rock has not only conquered fame but managed to do so by being a likeable and popular person.
The actor reacted to the news on his social media and posted a lengthy caption that detailed how much his journey to fame and fortune has changed his fate.
Part of the caption that Dwayne penned explained how he had not been very likeable at 15 and got suspended from school for getting into fights.
He then divulged that he learned an important lesson during that time:
"True story - while I was “serving my time” on my two-week school suspension - I heard a quote that would actually help shape the rest of my life, perspective and work ethic — It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice," the former WWE wrestler wrote.
Dwayne emphasised how much easier life becomes when people treat each other with kindness and thanked the writer of the piece for the compliment.
Briefly News previously reported that The Rock may just be the next US President and is looking good in polls. Hollywood superstar Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson could be the next President of the United States of America.
