Survey Says! According to the latest national poll by respected Quinnipiac University in Connecticut, America’s choice to replace Jon Stewart is … Tina Fey, reports USA Today.

The final tally saw Fey named by 19% of those surveyed, vs. 16% for comedian and conservative commentator Dennis Miller.

According to the story, the “two comedians, both former ‘Saturday Night Live’ mock news readers, lead the pack to fill Jon Stewart’s chair,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll, in a statement. “Dennis Miller is the favorite of 24% of Republicans. Tina Fey, with her dead-on take on Sarah Palin, is the darling of 26% of Democrats.”

The story adds, “Fey bests Miller among 18- to 34-year-olds, whereas older voters were divided, according to the poll. Meanwhile, 8% of voters suggested comedian John Oliver, 7% went for NBC’s Brian Williams and Craig Ferguson, and 5% prefer Chelsea Handler.”

Questions in the poll were asked of “1,286 registered voters nationwide,” the story says.

  1. Wishful thinking. I like that idea a lot. If anyone can do the job and break the so called gender barrier, Ms. Fey would be ideal. However, I just do not see it happening because of her deal with Lorne Michael’s and NBC.

  2. I can’t believe Miller would even be considered. If they were to go with him, I would never watch the show again. He is the most arrogant person on TV.
