Newsflash to both parties … BEWARE OF THE TEA PARTY GO’ERS … You have been warned. The silent majority no more.
Democrats have called them names and tried to marginalize them while for years Republicans have flat out ignored them. Who you ask? Answer, The Tea Party Go’ers.
In a recent Rasmussen poll, a Tea Party candidate finished second among Democrats and Republicans. The Tea Party candidate picks up 23%, Democrats 36% and Republicans finish third at 18%. Another 22% are undecided. So much for the Tea Party be a fad, eh?
Talk about a voting faction that either party should want to attract. However, there is one thing that is different about this voting block, it can’t be bought off and it doesn’t tolerate lies and BS! This poll is yet another example that the Tea Party is not Republican made or owed. These people are not necessarily Republicans, they are in fact sick and tired of an over-reaching government who could care less about the people and more about their own power. The Tea Party is tired of the political lies, over spending, government take over, over taxing and politicians not doing the work of “We the People.”
Running under the Tea Party brand may be better in congressional races than being a Republican.
In a three-way Generic Ballot test, the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds Democrats attracting 36% of the vote. The Tea Party candidate picks up 23%, and Republicans finish third at 18%. Another 22% are undecided.
Among voters not affiliated with either major party, the Tea Party comes out on top. Thirty-three percent (33%) prefer the Tea Party candidate, and 30% are undecided. Twenty-five percent (25%) would vote for a Democrat, and just 12% prefer the GOP.
Among Republican voters, 39% say they’d vote for the GOP candidate, but 33% favor the Tea Party option.
Republicans have a real chance to make major inroads into taking back the House and Senate if they embrace Tea Party Nation. Because the Tea Party go’ers are against so many things that exemplify the Democrats and liberals in Congress and Barack Obama, Dems would be hard pressed to attract enough of their vote to matter. However, honest, lower the deficit, less government Republicans have a great chance of getting this vote.
However, a word of warning to Republicans … you break your word and you will be held accountable. The Tea Party does not work for you, YOU WORK FOR THE TEA PARTY!
