A recent poll saw British people vote for their preferred leader in an alien invasion. Surprisingly, Arnold Schwarzenegger came out on top.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has had many successful careers. The bodybuilder won Mr Olympia seven times before transitioning into a high-profile acting career and then a position as Governor of California.
It now seems that the Terminator actor could have a new job if aliens invade, Supreme Leader.
What was the vote for
The BLAZE TV channel commissioned the survey as a fun way to gear up for its UFO Week.
People in the UK were asked, ‘who would best deal with an alien invasion’ and were offered twenty high profile choices. However, they seemed to favour US stars.
Arnold Schwarzenegger came out as a clear winner and it appears to be enjoying the prospect.

What’s been said
In response to the vote Schwarzenegger tweeted:
“I want to thank the people for putting their faith in me. I am ready to serve.”
The team behind the poll also think that Schwarzenegger is a good choice. Speaking to Deadline, a spokesperson for Blaze TV stated:
“Arnold Schwarzenegger is a strong choice for dealing with an alien invasion, bearing in mind he’s not only a screen action hero but was also Governor of California.”
“Although it’s worrying to see that so many celebrities with fictional alien experience are considered by many to be better candidates than our current crop of world leaders.”
Despite the positive qualities of Schwarzenegger, the spokesperson seemingly felt other members of the poll may have also been suitable.
Who else was in the poll
Falling behind Schwarzenegger was the likes of Will Smith, Bruce Willis and Tom Cruise. Interestingly, all the stars in the top five have starred in sci-fi films bar Sir David Attenborough.
The trend of sci-fi stars featuring in the list continued with Sigourney Weaver polling at number seven and Harrison Ford placing in sixth. Unfortunately in the event of an alien attack, politicians aren’t held in high regard.
Politicians on the poll included Donald Trump and Boris Johnson, who polled in eighth and twelfth respectively. Furthermore, VP Kamala Harris and President Biden placed in nineteenth and twentieth.
It’s possible that the handling of the pandemic has lost the trust of voters. Equally, the participants may just prefer movie stars.
There doesn’t seem to be an alien attack on the horizon. However, if Hollywood films have taught us anything, its that aliens attack when we least expect it.
Fortunately, we can rest assured that our democratically elected leader for this scenario is not afraid to get their hands dirty when faced with a giant predator.
Looks like we’re prepared for every eventuality!
