ABC: Tea Party Movement Is Stalled – Americans Want Humongous Debt, Record Spending, More Government Control
The tea party was founded to counter the government’s runaway spending, unmanageable debt, and historic deficits.
After three years of Obama’s failed crony socialist policies we now have a weaker economy, a downgraded credit rating, $4 trillion more of debt and a president who refuses to admit his policies destroyed the nation’s morale and confidence.
But, it is an election year. An Obama is going to need all the help he can get.
The far left outlet says Americans want more of Obama’s destruction… And the tea party sucks.
A major force in the 2010 midterm elections, the movement has stalled in public popularity, its support well below a majority and decidedly lukewarm. And Americans by a broad 23-point margin say the more they hear about the Tea Party movement, the less they like it, rather than liking it more.
That negative buzz has worsened from a 9-point gap in an ABC News/Washington Post poll as the movement was gathering speed two years ago. And its avenues for resurgence may be limited: Interest in learning more about Tea Party is down 7 points from spring 2010.
This poll, produced for ABC by Langer Research Associates, finds that six in 10 Americans aren’t particularly interested in additional information about the Tea Party, and 41 percent aren’t interested “at all.” Thirty-nine percent have at least some interest, but just 9 percent are very interested. Among those with interest, moreover, more than six in 10 already support it.
Read the rest if you want.
And get used to this.
The campaign season is just getting started.
