The People of South Carolina Want Stephen Colbert to Lead Them

Stephen Colbert announced his intentions to win a recently-vacated Senate seat in his home state of South Carolina on his show last week, and now, a new poll reveals that he’s the top choice for South Carolina residents. Public Policy Polling ¬†released the poll, which says 20% of South Carolina voters support Colbert, with the states Congressmen Tim Scott and Trey Gowdy in second and third place with 15% and 14%, respectively. The voters, though, won’t be deciding who wins the position. That choice is in the hands of Governor Nikki Haley, but hopefully, this new data will sway her to make the right choice and finally appoint a fictional TV pundit to public office like we all want.
