JOHNSON: A real national poll that brought together Republicans and Democrats in saying that I would beat Donald Trump if we had an election today —

FALLON: Absolutely.

JOHNSON: — to become president. And I’ve been really been blown away. And it’s so flattering. And I think you have to question why. I think it’s because, you know, a lot of people want to see a different leadership today — I’m sorry, not different, but better leadership today, right? A better leadership. I think more poised, less noise. And I also think that over the years I’ve become a guy that a lot of people kind of relate to: get up early in the morning at a ridiculous hour, go to work and spend time with the troops, take care of my family. I love taking care of people. And I think that kind of thing really resonates with people, especially today. I love coming here to “The Tonight Show” crowd.

FALLON: We love you.

JOHNSON: I mean, really, I’ve been blown away. And I’m very flattered by it. Three and a half years is a long ways away. So we’ll see.
