The Public Opinion Strategies poll this past weekend of 1,000 likely primary voters that included Colbert's name -- as both a Democrat and Republican, as he wishes --- found him drawing 2.3 percent in the Dem race nationally (though he is threatening to run only in his native South Carolina).LOL! That guy's a freaking hoot.
This put his ahead of Richardson (2.1 percent), Rep. Dennis Kucininch (2.1) and, of course, Sen. Mike Gravel. And he trails Sen. Biden by just a tad (he's at 2.7 percent).
Of course he has a long way to go to catch up with the three frontrunners (you know who they are).
But Colbert fares less well among his natural constituency on the GOP side, where he draws less than one percent.
For old time's sake, let's watch Stephen eviscerate the president—wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
