Are tea partiers are polling better than political parties?

Pelosi, Obama and the Democrats with quite a few Republicans may mock the tea party movement and accuse them of all sorts of misdeeds, however, the general public isn’t buying it. The tea party movement seems better liked by the general public than the politicians trashing them.

A new a new Rasmussen should be very uncomfortable for anyone holding office of either party. Especially if they have been on record trashing the tea party movement.

“Still, 47% believe the Tea Party movement is good for the country, a finding that hasn’t changed since May. Thirty-two percent (32%) say the movement is bad for America, while 14% say it’s neither.”

Contrast this with how much the public like the parties as reported by MSNBC in their own poll.

“Just 33 percent have a positive view of the Democratic Party, versus 44 percent who have a negative view.”

What might surprise and shock those in the Republican Party is how poorly the party fares in the poll. It leads credence to those that wish to keep the tea party from being seen as the cranky wing of the Repubiican Party.

“As for the Republican Party, only 24 percent see it positively — the GOP’s lowest-ever rating in the poll — while 46 percent see it negatively.”

So the county is declaring a pox on both houses, but looks to be giving the Repubicans a chance to do a better job, given the Dems current lock on control of the elected branches of government. If the mood continues that ire will be turned on them.

This year its open season on the political classes and those who think they hold power.
