The Tea Party is a conservative movement that is growing from its sprouts 8 short months ago and has been given a shot of Viagra.
And is now more popular than the two parties currently holding power in Washington, according to a major new poll.
A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll released Wednesday say 41 percent of likely voters now have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party. That compares to a 35 percent favorable rating for Democrats and 28 percent for the GOP.
The more the Obama administration takes America to the left, the larger the Tea Party grows on the right.
This is an astonishing movement. A movement based on the foundation of what was once a GOP base.
They have begun to walked away from the GOP in record numbers because of one simple fact (well there are lots of facts, but...)
Americans that now see The Tea Party as the party of choice are more then likely staunch GOP'ers who have gotten fed up with the loss of vision by the Republican party and how the Republican party have given some left talking points a consideration of 'their flexible agenda'.
That won't hold water with most Americans and the results of this poll suggest voter antipathy toward both major parties is more profound than first thought.
It also tells us that the left-wing bloggers and talk hosts who have consistently trashed The Tea Party since it's inception with an obscene “tea bagger” reference are out of step with the American people at best and despiteful to say the least.
As I see it, when you stoop to harsh name calling, there is an underlying panic from the left that this movement is more of a tsunamis of resentment towards not only the left, but moderates of the right.
MSNBC Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough said “This is stunning to me just because it shows how angry Americans are – the Tea Party movement is more popular than both major parties. The parties are dying.”
