Jon Stewart Next US President?

Forty-two percent of registered voters in a recent ABC News/Washington Post poll said they would support Stewart over Colbert, who received just 22 percent of the vote. Twenty-one percent wouldn’t support either.

Fittingly, the two also plan to go head-to-head Saturday in their own marches on The National Mall. Stewart, host of Comedy Central’s The Daily Show, has described his “Rally to Restore Sanity” as “Woodstock, but with the nudity and drugs replaced by respectful disagreement.”

Colbert, host of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, countered with the “March to Keep Fear Alive,” specifically the fear “that someone might take our Freedom and Liberty.” His website urged packing “five extra sets of underwear.”
