    New York Times/CBS Poll Finds Record Low Approval Rating for Congress - NYTimes.com


    Voters are slightly more disapproving of the Republicans in Congress than they are of the Democrats, with just 19 percent approving of Republicans, compared with 28 percent that approve of Democrats.

    Republican voters are more dissatisfied with their party’s representatives than are Democrats. Half of Republican voters say they disapprove of Republicans in Congress, while 43 percent of Democratic voters say they disapprove of Democrats in Congress. Independents are slightly less approving of Congressional Republicans than Congressional Democrats.

    The funny bit is that the Romney Republicans are the normal even tempered fiscal conservatives. Tea Party was hijacked by right wing extremists and social conservative evangelicals. "No Compromise" that's retarded. That's how the Soviet Union happened, People refused to compromise and they messed up, well, the extreme right can cause just as much problems as the extreme left. The best is an even tempered middle ground.

    Run Romeny and you will get a third party ticket tea party candidate bleeding off votes.

    Run Parry and you will lose a section of the Romeny vote to democrats.

    Pretnd all you like your party is fractured and its the tea partys fault

    The Repubs are caught between a rock & a hard place. The people they have to court are the same people who's polls are cratered: t-partiers and religious righties.
