Who is Extreme: 48% of Americans Say Views More Like Tea Party, Only 22% Say More Like Congress


Democrats have tried to smear the Tea Party since the outset of the grass roots, “We the People” movement, it has gotten them no where.

Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid just last week was at it again knocking the Tea Party (VIDEO); however, he just like mostt Democrats just don’t get it. ‘We the People” do not think the Tea Party is extreme, we think that Congress is. He stated that the people does not care about the Tea Party, it is just a small percentage that identify with the Tea Party. Really Harry?

 In a recent Rasmussen poll, 48% of  of Likely U.S. Voters say when facing major issues, their views are closer to the average Tea Party member while only 23% favor the views of Congress.  Meanwhile, 54% of voters not affiliated with either major political party, say the movement is good for the country.

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. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

 A radical and unpopular faction? Really? Since when is it radical and unpopular to live within your means, bankrupt a ccountry and leave your children and grand children with a bill they cannot afford? This is what Democrats think is radical. Is is no wonder that Democrats were shellacked in the 2010 midterm elections.

      Remember that Harry was a boxer in his early life. Sometimes they get one punch too many that affects the ability see reality.

      If the Democrats don’t admit they got a shellacking in 2010, just wait until 2012. When the people get through, the party may be in the position of the Whigs in 1860.
