Colbert Leads Huntsman in SC

Jon Huntsman may be headed toward a second-place finish in New Hampshire Tuesday night, but he’s getting beat in South Carolina—by fake candidates. According to a new poll by Public Policy Polling, comedian Stephen Colbert is leading Huntsman among Carolina voters 5 percent to 4 percent. Colbert ran a phony presidential campaign in 2008, and offered to sponsor the South Carolina GOP primary if his name was printed on the ballot and a referendum on campaign finance was included.
