According to NME, Dwayne Johnson said that, although he cares very much about his country, he knows nothing about politics.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, the actor talked about a recent poll in which 46 percent of respondents said they would vote for him if he ever decided to run. The Rock quickly took to social media.

"The latest poll showed that 46% of Americans would support me running for President," he began adding that the unbelievable support he could have evokes mixed feelings.

"It is so humbling and it really sits me down and I shake my head in awe. But at the end of the day, I don’t know the first thing about politics. I care deeply about our country," Johnson said. "I may have some leadership qualities but that doesn’t necessarily make me a great Presidential candidate. I’m not a politician so I don’t care what side of the street you live on or what side of the aisle you sit on."

"Core values matter. Work hard, take care of your family, be kind to people, take pride in your name, take pride in your own two hands, be inclusive and respect everyone," Dwayne Johnson wrote on Instagram.
