5 Reasons a Senate Run by Arnold Schwarzenegger Won't End Well

Arnold Schwarzenegger's political career may not be over yet.

The 69-year-old star segued seamlessly from A-lister to "The Governator" in 2003. He left Cal-ee-forn-ya's political machine in 2011 and went back to his previous gig.

Movie star.

Now, he's suggesting he's got another political run in mind -- Sen. Schwarzenegger. Will he succeed? It's wise never to bet against him. Who would have predicted 40 years ago that a bodybuilder with a thick Austrian accent and little acting chops would become Hollywood's biggest movie star?

It's still more likely his second political run won't end well come Election Day. Here are five reasons why.

1. He Can't Draw a Crowd

Schwarzenegger once ruled Hollywood. His recent film resume suggests audiences have moved on. "Sabotage" ($10 million). "Maggie" ($187K). "Escape Plan" ($25 million). "The Last Stand" ($12 million).

Now, with the ratings for his version of NBC's "The Apprentice" struggling, he's left the long-running show despite tons of publicity due to being Donald Trump's reality-show heir.

Pop-culture consumers clearly aren't interested in seeing him on screens big or small.
