The Rock Beats Donald Trump In New Presidential Poll
It shouldn't be a surprise to anyone that Dwayne Johnson is mulling a run for President -- The Rock has been talking about it since January, and repeated it in his recent cover story for GQ. Actual quote: "It's a real possibility."
But is it? He could be just clowning us, or setting the stage for a movie with chase scenes through Washington D.C.
But now we have numbers, and they come from a reputable source. Apparently he could win. Public Policy Polling:
We also looked at Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson's prospects if he were to run for President as a Democrat. 36% of voters see Johnson favorably to 13% with a negative view of him, although 50% of voters have no opinion about him either way. Both Democrats (38/15) and Republicans (31/17) see him positively. Johnson would lead Trump 42/37 in a prospective contest, and wins over 15% of people who supported Trump last fall.
Why not? Recent events have proven that we now live in a reality show world, where the lines between fiction and real life are more blurred than ever. So hell, Julia Louis-Dreyfuss as Vice President. Sure.
But PPP has other, more important polling data:
21% of voters want the Warriors to win the NBA title to 17% for the Celtics, 14% for the Cavaliers, and 8% for the Spurs. Clinton voters are pulling for the Warriors, while Trump voters are narrowly pulling for the Celtics. 40% don't care who wins. 20% of voters want the Penguins to win the Stanley Cup to 15% for the Ducks, 10% for the Senators, and 9% for the Predators. 46% don't care who wins that one.
And of course:
We also asked if voters think that Donald Trump could have stopped the Civil War, and 41% of his supporters think he would have stopped it to 21% who don't think he could have, and 38% who aren't sure. Overall only 20% of voters think Trump could have stopped the Civil War.
Your move, Ken Burns.
