Thanks to IRS Targeting Scandal, Tea Party Gets Huge Bump in Polls … Up 14%


Tea Party approvals up 14% … Americans may just understand that the Tea Party was fighting against tyranny all along.

In the end the IRS may have done the Tea Party the greatest favor of all. The IRS scandal to target the Tea Party and other conservative non-profit organizations was a political hatchet job meant to aid President Barack Obama win reelection in 2012 no matter the denials from the White House, the IRS or the invoking of the 5th Amendment during House oversight hearings. It is obvious that it was political as it was only conservative orgs that were targeted trying to stifle their 1st Amendment rights. If you were a progressive organization, you were fast-tracked. Now, after the IRS scandal has hot the fan and the American public completely distrust the IRS and are questioning whether the White House knew or was directly responsible … the Tea Party may just have their mojo back. Oh the irony, the IRS’s actions were to politically destroy the Tea Party, imagine if by their corrupt, unethical and purposeful targeting of the Tea Party provides just the opposite effect?


According to a recent Rasmussen poll, the favorables for the Tea Party have jumped drastically since the news broke that the IRS  was targeting the grassroots movement and other conservative groups. The Tea Party now has a favorability rating of 44% among likely U.S. Voters, up 14 points from January.

The Tea Party movement is showing signs of a resurgence following the revelation that the IRS targeted groups and other politically conservative organizations for the past several years.

A recent poll shows Americans have a more favorable opinion of the less-government, anti-tax groups. And one of the biggest groups in the grassroots movement told this weekend that fundraising and donations have increased since news of the IRS targeting broke earlier this month.

However, one of the biggest remaining questions is whether the Tea Party can take the momentum in the 2014 elections.

The real question is whether the Tea Party will have an effect on the 2014 elections like they did in 2010 when their grassroots actions were the main contributor in a Democrat shellacking.

      With a heavy heart … my youngest son’s American FIL claims if those Republican representatives in Congress and the Senatives are not Conservatives … it is all for naught.

      Progressives/RINOs say all the words that conservatives want to hear on the issues but when all is said and done … it is all talk and there is no meaningful action in implementing change.
