Poll suggests Colbert could be a frontrunner within a month

From Editor & Publisher:

Less than a week ago, shortly after he announced for president, Stephen Colbert was favored by only a little more than 2% of Democrats as the favorite for the nomination. Now, a Rasmussen Report national telephone survey has found that he gains 13% of voters in a matchup with Rudy Giuliani and Sen. Hillary Clinton.

With former Sen. Fred Thompson substituted for Giuliani, the host of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report still got 12%.

If he keeps gaining over 10% a week, Colbert should be leading the field before November is out. 

I love the fact that Colbert is running, even if it is only in South Carolina.  By going on the campaign trail in his Colbert persona he can highlight the absurdities of our political system and show how it has become a pure media dog and pony show.  It reminds me of when Jon Stewart went on CNN’s Crossfire and totally exposed how hollow the show was.  The 13 year old program was canceled months later.
