<nettime> Zuckerberg 2020 election candidate?

Apologies if this has already been previously speculated or discussed but during the past month there seems to have been an awful lot of rumours/fake news circulating suggesting Zuckerberg will run for presidency in 2020 American elections.

recent articles-

"Zuckerberg won the support of 69% of voters who said they cast a ballot for Democrat Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election and 9% of those who said they voted for Trump"
This 'poll' was only done with 863 people , and just under half said they have no opinion about him (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/mark-zuckerberg-in-a-dead-heat-with-trump-in-2020-election-poll/article/2629037)

the odds at the bookmakers for Zuckerberg to run as democratic candidate down to 16/1 (from 25/1) forecasting him at equal odds with Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson (http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/341269-campaign-committee-for-dwayne-the-rock-johnson-filed-with-fec) what are peoples thoughts on this, and more importantly if there is any legitimacy in these rumours what is the general response?
