Yes, the jokes were flying around that The Rock could be president but then things started to get a bit more serious as of late. CNN even ran a poll not too long ago showing that if Rock were to run against Donald Trump today, the Great One would easily win the presidency.
Now it's starting to get even more serious.
A campaign group has been formed called Run the Rock 2020 that aims to draft The Rock to indeed run for the highest office in the land in 2020 after Trump's first term comes to an end. This campaign was started by a man from West Virginia named Kenton Tilford and it is not known what his motivation or connection to Rock is if any.
Rock did also speak in a GQ interview earlier this year, stating that it is "a real possibility" that he would run against Trump and added that he would like to see "better leadership, responsibility and 'poise' from the Oval Office."
Of note here as well is that The Rock is currently registered as neither Democratic nor Republican but rather as an Independent.
