Sorry, Harry Reid… Tea Party Is Still Twice As Popular As Congress
Bummer. It was just last week that far left Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was knocking the tea party on the senate floor.
Poor Harry wasn’t expecting this…
After all of his attacks and the awful attacks by his comrades in the state-run media, nearly half of American voters still say the tea party represents their views.
In the ongoing budget-cutting debate in Washington, some congressional Democrats have accused their Republican opponents of being held captive by the Tea Party movement, but voters like the Tea Party more than Congress.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 48% of Likely U.S. Voters say when it comes to the major issues facing the country, their views are closer to the average Tea Party member as opposed to the average member of Congress. Just 22% say their views are closest to those of the average congressman. Even more (30%) aren’t sure.
This shows little change from a survey in late March of last year.
And to make matters worse for Harry Reid, the survey shows little change from one year ago.
Harry sure is a sharp liberal leader, isn’t he?
