Young Repubs Love Colbert
A new poll conducted by Harvard's Institute of Politics on 18-to-24-year-olds gets interesting when America's youth is asked about Colbert and his partner in satire, Jon Stewart. Turns out Republicans prefer Colbert — by a lot. Forty-nine percent of the study's youthful GOPers prefer Colbert, compared to 21 percent who prefer Stewart. More interestingly, 43 percent of those who call themselves "religious conservatives" prefer Colbert (9 percent for Stewart) and 40 percent of "traditional conservatives" like Stephen (13 percent for Jon).

stephley, i agree. colbert is a caricature of all the republican stereotypes, which is why he's funny... I guess republicans like to laugh at themselves.

not surprising for me either, and I agree Cabaker, Colbert is more in a joking manner, Stewart is more mocking. it also helps that Colbert isn't all out news coverage, so a lot of it is stuff people aren't touchy about... ....I wonder if this means I am a Republican though, I don't consider myself either or, but I have always loved Colbert a lot more than Stewart. Interesting.

I don't think they really get the joke.

This doesnt surprise me at all! I can't stand the Daily Show but I do like Colbert. Colbert's jokes just seem more actual satire and good natured, while the Daily Show jokes just seem sophmoric and mean spirited.
