From the CC Insider…
Last night, GOP hopeful Jon Huntsman finished a distant third in the New Hampshire primary, the one state where it looked like he might have a shot at taking a strong second, which would have given him the momentum to maybe tie for sixth in South Carolina, paving the way for an upset fourth in Florida, which as any electoral historian knows, is the one sure path to the White House.
Well, to add salt to the wounds, a new PPP poll finds none other than Stephen Colbert in sixth place in his home state of South Carolina with 5%, ahead of Huntsman who is only pulling in 4%. It just proves the old adage that you cannot get Colbert bumped ahead of Colbert himself.
The Colbert Report airs Monday through Thursday at 11/10c.
