That’s about all I have to say. Steve Colbert’s decision to stage a massive publicity stunt by running for President might not have been intended to draw much support, but apparently there is a considerable segment of the population who thinks he would be better than either Hillary Clinton or Rudy Giuliani. The problem? The votes seem to come almost exclusively from the GOP candidate. Check it out:
Rasmussen Presidential Election Poll – October 24, 2007
Hillary Clinton – 45%
Rudy Giuliani – 35%
Stephen Colbert – 13%
Hillary Clinton – 46%
Fred Thompson – 34%
Stephen Colbert – 12%
Apparently, Colbert does better in the 18-21% age group – where he draws almost a third of the vote. In races against both Giuliani and Thompson, Colbert is second after Hillary Clinton in that age group.
Let me know what you think. Would YOU vote for Colbert before you vote for Giuliani or Thompson?
