New Poll Finds Tom Hanks Atop The List Of Celebrities Americans Would Like To Run For President

New Poll Finds Tom Hanks Atop The List Of Celebrities Americans Would Like To Run For President
Updated 3 months ago

From President Ronald Reagan to governors Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jessie Ventura to city mayors Jerry Springer and Sonny Bono, it's not unheard of for celebrities to get into politics. Donald Trump may be the only reality show personality to make his way to the White House, but that doesn't mean we won't see more famous people throwing their hat in the presidential ring.  

Though the American public may shy away from celebrity politicians (considering how well this one isn't working out), they wouldn't necessarily discount them all. The website Ranker.com recently asked people which celebrity they would most trust to run the country. The winner was Tom Hanks, star of films such as A League of Their Own, Big, Saving Private Ryan and Forrest Gump.

Hanks is popular for his calming demeanor and nice-guy personality.

Hanks wasn't the only famous name to make the list. Here are the top ten:

  • Tom Hanks
  • Ellen DeGeneres 
  • Morgan Freeman
  • Jon Stewart
  • The Rock
  • Oprah Winfrey
  • Clint Eastwood
  • Stephen Colbert
  • Chuck Norris
  • Bill Nye

People may love Tom Hanks, but they are not quite ready for another actor in the White House:

But really, most people seem to be seriously over celebrity politicians:
