Is rubber a conductor?

Yes. All things conduct electricity.

This is because the “amount” can vary a lot.

Conductivity (s) for silver is Sm. This means that a small electric field applied to it will cause a lot of current to flow.

Conductivity of hard rubber is Sm, which means that less current will flow. However, conduction of electricity can occur if the electric field strength is high enough (maybe in the millions of volts range).
