(Newser) – Stephen Colbert is so elated that he's polling ahead of recent guest Jon Huntsman that he's contemplating jumping into the race for real, he told his audience on last night's Colbert Report. "I'm sorry, Governor Huntsman. I guess the Colbert bump reflected off of you and bounced back to me. That happens in the rare instances when my guests are even whiter than I am."

"This just got real," Colbert told the audience. "I've got to ask … should I run for president in South Carolina?" The audience naturally cheered, but Colbert said he'd first need to pray on it (two seconds later he declared God to be "good with it") and then "go home, sit down, and talk it over with my money." He promised that tonight he'd make a "major announcement" and an "historic decision."
