Colbert Viable National Candidate – In a Three Way Race


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?

    No suprise there in the results of that age group. 18-21 y/olds are notoriously ignorant of politics, and are particularly cavalier in their voting practices. They would vote for Che Guevara over the current candidates, not because they know anything about him, but because “VIVA LA REVOLUCION” looks really good on a T-shirt. I know everyone deserves the right to vote, but let’s hope they don’t all of a sudden come out in droves this time and win this election for Angelina Jolie, Colbert, or anyonther celebrity (such as Al Gore). I say let them vote, but let them get educated first.

  2. Colbert for President! I love the guy and even though he’s wacky and wierd, he’d be better than any of the other candidates.
