The establishment tried to destroy Donald Trump because he ran as a political outsider.
Other celebrities are thinking about following in Trump’s footsteps.
And one award-winning actor got some stunning news about his political future.
Americans are sick of the establishments of both parties.
That’s why Donald Trump was able to take over the Republican Party and sideline the neocons and some of the RINOs.
Another celebrity contemplating a run for office is Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey.
The Texan has tiptoed around a run for governor, but hasn’t officially announced.
However, a new poll from The Dallas Morning News and the University of Texas Tyler shows that McConaughey leads Greg Abbott by 8 points, and Beto O’Rourke by a whopping 22 points.
From The New York Post:
“Matthew McConaughey would defeat either incumbent GOP Texas Gov. Greg Abbott or Democratic challenger Beto O’Rourke in a head-on race if he ran for governor in 2022, a new poll suggests…However, in a three-way race, Abbott edges out the other two…If it came down to McConaughey against O’Rourke, the actor’s lead is even more stark — decimating the former presidential candidate by over 20 percentage points…In a three-way race scenario, McConaughey fell behind Abbot’s 37 percent to 27 percent, but still one point ahead of O’Rourke’s 26 percent.”
McConaughey has stayed in the centrist lane, although he has spoken out on more than one occasion against wokeness and the “illiberal Left.”
McConaughey is also a supporter of gun rights, and recently said that he would not be vaccinating his young children.
McConaughey has also been open about his faith in God and how Hollywood is openly hostile toward Christianity.
Those issues would certainly cause tension within the increasingly radical Democrat Party.
In fact, O’Rourke already called out McConaughey for not taking enough positions.
“[McConaughey’s] a really popular figure whose political views have not in any way been fixed…I don’t know, for example, who he voted for in the most consequential election since 1864 in this country…I don’t know how he feels about any of the issues that we’ve brought up.”
If McConaughey runs, he would obviously face an uphill battle, especially if he were to run as an independent.
People are furious at the establishment; they want a politician they believe will fight on important issues.
Joe Biden’s approval numbers are tanking, and Democrats around the country are concerned.
Americans are sick of the COVID restrictions, and more and more parents are incensed by what their children are being taught by radical teachers and administrators.
If McConaughey wants to run—regardless of party affiliation—he would have to come out strong on those issues otherwise his candidacy would go nowhere.
Unfortunately for him, choosing the “wrong” side could ruin his future in filmmaking.
Regardless, McConaughey’s poll numbers reflect dissatisfaction with the status quo.
There are opportunities for disruptors to make hay and defy the establishment.
