Public Policy Polling (PPP) had some fun today by deciding to poll Comedy Central comedian Stephen Colbert in South Carolina. As you may remember, Colbert wanted to place his name on the ballot but was rebuffed. PPP went ahead and polled Colbert’s platform anyway:
5% of primary voters would pick Colbert. He runs behind Mitt Romney’s 27%, Newt Gingrich’s 23%, Rick Santorum’s 18%, Ron Paul’s 8%, and Rick Perry’s 7%. But’s he beating out Jon Huntsman’s 4% and Buddy Roemer’s 1%.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. Here’s another nugget found in the poll:
Just 33% of likely voters think that ‘corporations are people’ compared to 67% who think that ‘only people are people.’
