30% of Americans Support Tea Party: Gallup

  1. Lots of growth potential here.

    Only 27% oppose the Tea Party.

    The rest are neutral or have no opinion.

    Very good news. :)
     
  2. Incredulous to me that "only" 30% support Tea Party Principles. Do only 30% of Americans support The Constitution also?

    And who would oppose? Those, who for their own personal greed and desire for power, would just LOVE to see America go FULL COMMIE?

    sadly, only 30% of americans know what the constitution is.
     
  4. Then the other 70% should not be allowed to vote.

    It's Hillsdale College, I believe, that requires having passed a course on the US Constitution to be granted any degree. Should be a requirement to graduate from high school, too.

    The ONLY thing which has separated us from and elevated America above the rest of the world is the US Constitution and the genius of our Founders. Any American who desires to vote should have knowledge of this.

    Voting carries a responsibility... it's not supposed to be simply a formality to lining ones own pocket.

    :(
     
  5. Switzerland is more American than America...

    They must be racists…

    A new poll released by Pajamas TV claims that one-third of black voters support the tea party movement.
    WND reported:
     
  8. Interesting.... considering Obama got what, 98% of the black vote? Would be interesting to see him get only 70% in '12.
     
  9. NBC Forced to Admit More See Tea Party as Good and Want ObamaCare Repealed – And They’re MSM Viewers

    A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll didn’t come up with numbers pleasing to the NBC News staff, though Brian Williams, on Tuesday’s NBC Nightly News, did his best to spin the findings as showing“there is really bad news if you're an incumbent officeholder of either party” and Chuck Todd insisted the public wants more from the elections than “just change [in] the color of the jerseys.”

    Todd, however, couldn’t avoid reporting that “the change that voters want” includes 54 percent who “hope that this Tea Party enthusiasm in the Republican Party makes them a fiscally conservative party” and “54 percent want to see the repeal of health care.” Plus, “42 percent tell us” the Tea Party movement has “been a good thing” – more than twice as many as see it as a “bad thing.”

    Unmentioned by Todd or Williams: Those pro-Tea Party/anti-ObamaCare numbers came from a polling sample dominated by MSM television news consumers. Question 36, in the PDF rundown of the survey, asked from which “television news sources do you get MOST of your information about politics and current events?” From the list offered, 35 percent said “broadcast network news, such as NBC, ABC, or CBS,” 16 percent named “the cable channel CNN” and 8 percent affirmed they rely on “the cable channel MSNBC.” That adds up to 59 percent, compared to 24 percent who cited “the cable channel Fox News."

    Todd also couldn’t resist touting Bill Clinton’s popularity:
