In the interview, Johnson was reluctant to criticise Donald Trump, but did state he thoroughly disagreed with the attempt to ban entry to the UK from several Muslim-majority countries. The Hollywood star appeared to say all the right things in his recent talk with the popular magazine, stating that “qualities of a great leader is not shutting people out”.
In a recent statement from Public Policy Polling, it was predicted that, if Dwayne Johnson ran as a Democrat candidate, he would lead the current President vote 42 to 37. He’d also apparently win over 15% of people who supported Donald Trump in the fall of 2016.
If America really does hit rock bottom under Trump, the betting odds suggest the 45 year-old could be a genuine contender in the 2020 election. This time last week, Johnson was roundly available at 100/1 across the boards with bookies, however today he’s as short as 50/1 now. Since he didn’t rule out the drastic career change he’s accounted for 22% of bets in the market through Oddschecker.
With a reality TV star currently running the country and a former pro wrestler expected to mount a serious challenge, it leaves the door open to anyone to run for President! Other household names in the market include: Mark Zuckerberg 50/1, Bill Gates 150/1, George Clooney 150/1, Leo DiCaprio 150/1 and Vince McMahon 200/1.
Oddschecker spokesman, Sam Eaton “Back in January 2015, Donald Trump was a massive 250/1 to be named the US President in 2016. Back then, very few people would have ever predicted Trump would actually come to power and for that reason you can’t rule anybody out. Given how popular Dwayne Johnson actually is and the size of his fan base, if there was any celebrity figure to run for future office, then he’d have to have the best chance”.
