    Rasmussen: Just 8% Identify as Tee Partee Members

    http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/general_politics/january_2013/just_8_now_say_they_are_tea_party_members

    A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 30% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party. Half (49%) of voters have an unfavorable view of the movement. Twenty-one percent (21%) are undecided. 

     

    Fare thee well.  We hardly knew ye.

    Meanwhile, Freedomworks is paying Dick Armey $400k per year for 20 years - just to stay away.  

    Speaking of which, it turns out that donations to freedomworks ended up as pay-offs to commentators like Rush and Beck, who in turn promoted freedomworks on their shows.  It's a simple con game in which ROTM conservative activists were the marks.

    Re: Rasmussen: Just 8% Identify as Tee Partee Members

    95%  think anal snarky misspelling of "Tea", as "Tee" (tee hee),  reflects deep seated anxiousness that the commoners don't shut up and hand over their money to the enlightened liberal bureaucratic class..

    To paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of the death of the Tea Party are greatly exaggerated. 

    Of the 55 members of the Tea Party caucus who ran for House seats on Nov. 6, 51 returned for the 113th Congress.

    Senators Ted Cruz and Tim Scott are two new superstar Senators who are sympathetic to the Tea Party. Per moonbat logic, they must be racists who hate blacks and Hispanics; even though they are black and Hispanic.

    Roughly a similar percent make up the extreme left.  The problem with our political system is that the activists in both parties control the primaries and platforms; leading us to being highly divided.

    How many acknowledged socialists are in Congress?  One?  And there are 51 Tea Partiers?  Not close at all.  And do point out the extreme positions of this "extreme left" that dominated the primaries and platform of the Democrats. For instance on abortion: the Republican platform adopted a policy of no abortion (going beyond what Romney supported). Did the Dermocrats adopt a policy of abortion without any restrictions?  No...  Face it, the conservatives have many more extremists in positions of authority... unless you redefine extremism to fit your extremist views.  Skeeter can help in this regard...

    In your comfortable liberal cocoon, when you move the goal posts way over to the Left, there are never any liberal extremists...

    "Did the Dermocrats adopt a policy of abortion without any restrictions?  No... " 

    Sorry, the answer is YES.

    The Democratic National Committee’s 2012 revised platform called for unrestricted abortion on demand, at any time during pregnancy, and on the taxpayer’s dime. That’s been the abortion lobby’s goal all along.

    While 72 percent of Americans say they oppose tax-funded abortion, the Democrats are moving in the opposite direction. While for years the party platform called for abortion to be safe, legal, and “rare,” that last qualifier was removed from this year's abortion plank.

    The medical method to determine if a fetus is beyond the first timester is an ultrasound. Dems rabidly opposed legal requirements for an ultrasound, effectively allowing abortion through the 9th month.

    Avowed Socialist Bernie Sanders is quite comfortable with today's Democrats. The few real moderate Dems left, like Joe Manchin and on occasion Mark Warner, are not.

    So, even with the assorted spin and dodges here AND allowing for the usual pollster unreliability (thanks jmel), we can surmise:

    Either the tee partee agenda is just as popular as it was in 2010, OR it's less popular.

    This would mean that - whatever the ratio - they have not gained many new supporters based upon their first full-term of influence in Congress.  And, if indeed "51 of 55 TP members were re-elected" (gerrymandering aside), and Congress' standing is worse than ever, are they not also to blame for gumming up the works as one of the least productive legislatures ever...?

    And I'll repeat, as I always have:  I am ALL FOR genuine (not astroturfed) citizen activism in support of logical, level-headed policy goals.  Deficit reduction is a worthy cause.  Reducing entitlement fraud and waste is a worthy cause.  Have at it.  Rattle the gates.

    But when logical fiscal concerns mutate into xenophobic, nimby-ist, "real america", evangelistic claptrap, then the wagons have run off the road and need to be righted before someone gets thrown.  If they can mange to stay on point, then their point will be taken.

    Who says they don't?  Can you cite examples?

    And I'll add that while I understand that all tee party groups are not equal, a few unhinged characters (and corporate vultures) can spoil the message very quickly.

    The largest shift came in the house, in 2010, as a result of the tea party.

    My friends in the Tea Party continue to have at least some impact.  Waning?  Apparently.

    But the Occupy Wall St kooks blew their 15 minutes and have been completely forgotten by all, including them.  Hope it was fun.

    [/QUOTE]

    Since most of the occupiers were likely on POTUS's side in the election, it probably was, seeing the ultra-corporate Mitt go down in green flames.

    Funny though that you would even think to equate the two groups.
