Stephen Colbert’s “campaign” seems to be gaining a lot of momentum. At least a million Facebook users have joined his group, far surpassing similar groups for Obama and Clinton, and it’s all happened in less than two weeks. I even saw a headline the other day that in an informal survey, 13% of voters said they’d choose him over Clinton or Guiliani.
I’ve said that I’ll vote for him, but then I started to wonder: when it’s time to actually cast a ballot, would I do it? Would I really write in his name and make it real? Will others? Sure, it’s a funny
situation and we can all say “well, I’d rather have him than McCain” or whatever, but I’m curious whether people will stand by that when it’s time to drop it in the ballot box.
Would you vote for him? Really?
