    Default Polls show tea party support dropping fast

    Things not looking good for the tea party.

    An increasing number of Americans are fed up with the tea party extremists and their outlandish views on government, a new USA Today/Gallup poll shows.

    The poll shows 47 percent of those surveyed now hold unfavorable views of the tea party while just 33 percent see the movement in a favorable light. That is a seven percent increase in unfavorable ratings and six percent drop in favorable since the Gallup last surveyed American opinion on the tea party in January.
    Only 30 percent of independents — the voter bloc crucial for elections — now favor the tea party. The tea party does best with older men with limited education while 57 percent of older women older women now oppose the movement.
    Gallup isn’t the first opinion research firm to show support dropping for the tea party. A CNN/Opinion Research poll released in late last month also found the movement’s negative rating at 47 percent and support at 32 percent.
    Why the drop? People now see the extremes of thetea party movement and they don’t like what they see. From the discredited birther movement to advocating cuts that hurt education, a growing number of Americans realize the tea party is out of touch with mainstream America.
    From where we sit, the tea party represents the worst of America: hate, bigotry and the rampant use of misinformation to further a regressive political agenda. The party appeals to the gullible and — once reality sets in — more informed voters turn their back on the mockery that the tea party makes of the American political system.
    Plus the tea party darlings — Sarah Palin,Michelle Bachmann, et. al — have fallen significantly in the public view. Even Wisconsin governorScott Walker — touted as a possible GOP Presidential candidate just 60 days ago — is dropping fast in public polls as reality of how his actions in Wisconsin have ruined the state sets in.

    The tea pot is boiling over and the party is disappearing like steam.

    yeh, I expect it is dropping among those that never supported them in the first place.

    They are probably talking about those who jumped on the tea party band wagon and were caught up in the frenzy. Now those same people have seen the tea party in action and do not like what they see.

    What is your issue Roger?
    The majority of tea party people simply believe in less big gov't and taxes.

    Oh yeah I forgot, you like socialism.

    OK let's play the numbers game;

    http://scottystarnes.wordpress.com/2...y-is-very-bad/

    70% believe America is on the Wrong Path as 80% Believe the Economy is very bad
    The results of Obama’s policies and Obamanomics.
    Politico reports:
    Americans are more pessimistic about the economy than they have been in more than two years, as gas prices soar, unemployment remains high and Washington battles it out over federal spending, a new poll suggests.
    In a New York Times/CBS News poll released late Thursday, views of the path on which the country is headed are the worst they’ve been since just weeks after President Barack Obama took office in early 2009. Twenty-six percent of those surveyed said the country is on the right track, while 70 percent said it’s on the wrong one. In February 2009, 23 percent of those surveyed for a CBS poll said it was on the right track, while 68 percent said it was on the wrong one.
    Eighty percent of those surveyed, meanwhile, said they think the economy is doing fairly or very bad, while 17 percent said it is fairly good and just 2 percent said it is very good.
    "It's not that government is inherently stupid, although that's a debatable question."
    Rand Paul CPAC speech 2011

    No one said everything is rosey. I am all for a middle of the road Republican if there is such a thing anymore but the radical right has taken over the party in the form of the tea party and those that have seen the workings of the tea partiers are moving away from them. Even in Wisconsin the Republicans there are taking a second look at the budget proposals Governor Walker is proposing.

    Don't count on it. But, give me something to buy into and I might go over to the "dark side".
