Heard recently that few celebrities are potentially getting into politics the next election cycle.
First, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. He’s a registered republican who might run in California.
Arnold the governator might come back and run in California in the Senate. I think the dynamic between him and Trump would help him.
The big one, which I think could really shake things up in 2020… Oprah. If you look at the 2016 race, I think she would be a VERY strong candidate compared to Trump. Will she be the first woman president?
Overall, as we’ve seen with the 2016 race and Trump winning, policy isn’t what wins votes. I’m not sure what any of the candidates (Dwayne, Oprah, or Arnold) bring to the table that is unique, but their personalities have a big following.
For discussion: Is it good that celebs are running for office? Is it all just a popularity contest?
