    Poll: Tea Party Patriots Most Popular
    Thursday, 17 Dec 2009 09:32 AMArticle Font Size
    By: David Patten

    The Tea Party Patriots conservative grassroots movement is now more popular than either major party according to a major new poll.

    According to the new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Wednesday, 41 percent of likely voters now have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party Patriots. That compares to a 35percent favorable rating for Democrats and 28 percent for the GOP.

    The stunning conclusion: If the Tea Party Patriots were a political party – it is increasingly shifting its emphasis in a nonpartisan political direction – it would be the most popular party in America.

    The results suggest voter antipathy toward both major parties is more profound than initially recognized.

    It also indicates that the left-wing bloggers and talk hosts who have consistently derided the Tea Party Patriots throughout the year with an obscene “tea bagger” reference are out of step with the American people.

    “This is stunning to me just because it shows how angry Americans are – the Tea Party movement [is] more popular than both major parties,” MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough said Thursday. “The parties are dying.”

    WSJ/NBC News Poll: Tea Party Tops Democrats and Republicans - Washington Wire - WSJ

    By Susan Davis

    The loosely organized group made of up mostly conservative activists and independent voters that’s come to be known as the Tea Party movement currently boasts higher favorability ratings than either the Democratic or Republican Parties, according to the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll coming out later today.

    More than four in 10, 41%, of respondents said they had a very or somewhat favorable view of the Tea Party movement, while 24% said they had a somewhat or very negative view of the group. The Tea Party movement gained notoriety over the summer following a series of protests in Washington, D.C. and other cities over government spending and other U.S. economic policies.

    Keep in mind that many still are not familiar with the tea party's movement, they will be and you will see tea party candidates come out of the woodwork to run for congress and the senate in 2010.

    The Republicans need to be paying attention to this, no more liberal, moderate tax and spend candidates. If they throw those people up to run they will be defeated. I think they are finally getting it. They deserted their basic principles of a small efficient government with lower taxes and therefore deserted the base of their party. They have paid for it by losing the house, the senate and the Presidency. No more.

    A message from Michael Steele, GOP chairman, "Tea Partiers come home??? "We will as soon as you get your party back to it's base of fiscal conservatism, until then we will party down. :lol::lol::lol:

    Michael Steele To Tea Partiers: Come On Home | TPMDC

    Recent weeks have seen the beginnings of an internal crisis for the GOP, with the extreme right threatening to tear apart the party's tenuous coalition of business and social conservatives. Last week the civil war came to a head in a Rasmussen poll showing a hypothetical "Tea Party" beating the GOP on a generic Congressional ballot, splitting the Republican vote just enough to give the Democrats a win.

    At the press conference yesterday, Steele unveiled a new, more in-your-face model for GOP activism torn right from the tea party playbook. In addition to the radio ads, Steele announced a new grassroots organizing program on health care that will send Republican activists to six states with the moderate Democratic senators targeted by the Tea Partiers. The goal, Steele said, will be for the GOP to help outraged voters get their message across to the Democrats that he says dismisses the voices heard at the tea parties and the August health care town halls.

    Here's what MSNBC had to say about this poll.

    “This is stunning to me just because it shows how angry Americans are – the Tea Party movement [is] more popular than both major parties,” MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough said Thursday. “The parties are dying.”

    It's obvious that Americans are sick & tired of both democrats & republicans. Once Americans realise that the tea party movement is made up of republicans, democrats & independents who are outraged over this wasteful government spending--bail out after bail out--government take over after take over--their popularity will trounce the politics as usual--& as run by the dnc & the rnc.

    If politicians from both sides of the isle don't pay attention to this--they will in effect be committing political suicide.

    It's obvious by this poll that the crowd below--just increased 1000 fold--:lol::lol:

    More like a 100,000 fold, the people are pissed, and they are showing it. If this Health care plan is shoved down our throats with 57% of Americans opposed to it, there will be millions more joining the tea party's.

    I continually hear talk about how a 3rd party can't win, that you have to run as a Republican or a Democrat. I say there is a first time for everything and when I see the anger that is building in this country to this socialistic, running up astronomical debt, with a tax and spend agenda, anything could happen. By 2010 we will know, but it's got to be the GOP that comes to the tea party, not the other way around.

    I have sent money to SarahPac, Palin is on a mission to support fiscal conservatives for 2010 and if you think the same way the tea partiers do, I would suggest you do the same thing.

    I heard that millions are flowing in, no count yet, but it's got to scare the be-jesus out of both parties. We have had ENOUGH!!!

    One thing for certain--this sure ain't "astro-turf." The party that needs to pay attention to this, if they really want to continue to exist is the Republican party. Americans are outraged at them too--because let's face it--both parties are responsible for all of this non-sense wasteful spending.

    Here we just had two Republicans from Miss that stuck in millions into a bill to get money for an airport that services only a few people a day. This when they just got 4 million for the same airport. Then Democrat Ben Nelson got 2.7 million for building a surgery center in outer space. This just last week.

    Americans are sick of both parties--& it couldn't be more clear.

    TEA-PARTIERS! Rock on!--:clap2::clap2:

    People are getting soooooooooooooooooooo angry about this stuff that it would not surprise me to see people go up there and physically remove them from their cushy jobs and throw them out on their butts and into an unemployment line. That's coming in 2010.:clap2:
