Fred Thompson a bane to the religious right?

I don't think so.

Unannounced presidential candidate Fred Thompson easily leads all announced candidates in an online poll by the American Family Association, one of the nation’s leading conservative Christian and pro-family groups.

In the ongoing poll, Thompson had collected 17,280 votes by Thursday afternoon, with another unannounced candidate, Newt Gingrich, behind at 6,857 votes.

The former Tennessee senator and actor Thompson, who disclosed on Wednesday that he was diagnosed with lymphoma, a form of cancer, hasn’t yet decided if he will run for president in 2008.

Mitt Romney led the announced Republican candidates with 5,219 votes, ahead of Rudy Giuliani (4,313), John McCain (3,559) and Mike Huckabee (2,235). Sam Brownback led the other GOP candidates with 2,021 votes.

Roll on, Fred!
