Dwayne Johnson Talks Potential 2020 Presidential Run: "We'll See"

Dwayne Johnson Talks Potential 2020 Presidential Run:

I think over the years I've become a guy that people relate to. The poll he is referring to was conducted by Public Policy Polling, a Democratic polling firm. Johnson is now on the promo circuit for his R-rated Baywatch movie, which opens next week, but was hit with some presidential rumor inquiries due to all the headlines spawned by his recent GQ cover story. "I've really been blown away".

"I think it's because, you know, a lot of people want to see a different leadership today - I'm sorry, not a different, but a better leadership today", The Rock said.

The Rock said he thinks that people are looking for a better kind of leader these days.

While I love the acid-freakout setup of the whole endeavor, the real selling point is the whole "blasted in the face" thing, which they really help you out with by providing super slow-mo replays.

Johnson added that the 2020 election is still years away, "so we'll see". "I'm so incredibly flattered". "Why are people making such a connection or such a big deal about this?" "But there are a lot of other things I want to do first".

"I care DEEPLY about our country", Johnson wrote. Leadership would be important.

Donald Trump had mused about running for office since at least the late 1980s before eventually pulling the trigger on his campaign in 2016 - and winning.
