Let’s fantasy book The Rock’s Presidency

With Dwayne Johnson openly talking about adding “and politics” to his title as “the most electrifying man in sports and entertainment”, and Public Policy Polling (H/T With Spandex) putting some actual research into the possibility he could win national office in a hypothetical race against the current commander-in-chief, WWE Hall of Famer Donald Trump...

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.

... we tasked our crack video team of Marc Normandin and Case Harts with taking a speculative look at President Johnson. They came up with “Facebook Live Rock Concerts” in lieu of weekly radio addresses, a focus on physical fitness (duh) and, of course, flamethrowers:
