Stephen Colbert Campaign Would Help Republicans

Stephen Colbert

Believe it or not, as a Presidential candidate, Stephen Colbert would help the Republican party defeat President Obama.  In a recent Public Policy Polling (PPP) survey:

Stephen Colbert, would actually hurt the president more than [it would] Romney, pulling 13% of the national vote and keeping Obama to a 41-38 margin

This is particularly shocking, because Libertarian Candidate Gary Johnson fares much worse:

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is down from 9% to 7% of the national vote since last month, but he still stands to hurt Romney more, helping Obama to a 47-40 win.

Should Republicans stop criticizing and blasting Colbert, and start embracing a legitimate Colbert Campaign?

Polling numbers point to Yes.
