Dwayne Johnson as President? The WWE star and actor isn't ruling out the possibility. After a poll announced that almost 50% of Americans would vote for Dwayne if he ran for President, the star feels 'flattered' at the possibility.

Piplsay surveyed over 30,000 people and found that 46% of Americans want the WWE wrestler to run for what's considered the highest office in the nation.

To express his gratitude, Dwayne took to Twitter to share how flattered he was over the polling results.

"Not sure 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," he wrote. 

Though he didn't deny that if it ever became a reality, he would love to take on the duty. 

"If it ever happens, it’d be my honor to serve the people," he added.

The praise didn't stop there. His over 228 million Instagram followers also expressed their interest and support over the idea of a Presidential bid from the star. Some even asked him what was stopping him from pursuing a career in politics.

It's still unclear how serious Dwayne's remarks are about running for office, but he has previously wrestled with the idea of running for President, openly discussing the potential over social media.

Back in 2020, after the actor was asked about his own political prospects for an interview with Vanity Fair, he said, "I wouldn't rule it out." 

"It would be a great opportunity to help people, so it's possible," Dwayne added. "This past [2020] election shows that anything can happen."

This isn't the first time Dwayne has made headlines over potentially running for office, either. He also responded to a past Washington Post article titled "Dwayne Johnson says he might want to run for president. He could actually win."

He was also flattered at the time but encouraged people to focus on the current leadership at the time.

"I care DEEPLY about our county... and the idea of one day becoming President to create real positive impact and global change is very alluring," he posted. "Buuuuut until that possible day, the most important thing right now is strong, honest leadership from our current and future leaders of this country. Thanks again, Washington Post."
