Colbert's Poll Numbers on the Rise
Look out, Hillary Clinton — Stephen Colbert might soon be hot on your heels. As it happens, Republican presidential hopefuls Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson also have cause for concern, according to a new Rasmussen Report national survey. Oh, and about those reports that Colbert’s candidacy may violate campaign election laws? Comedy Central’s on the case.
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.
