Rasmussen Poll: The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of U.S. voters believe the average member of the Tea Party movement has a better understanding of the issues facing America today than the average member of Congress. Only 30% believe that those in Congress have a better understanding of the key issues facing the nation.
When it comes to those issues, 47% think that their own political views are closer to those of the average Tea Party member than to the views of the average member of Congress. On this point, 26% feel closer to Congress.
Finally, 46% of voters say that the average Tea Party member is more ethical than the average member of Congress. Twenty-seven percent (27%) say that the average member of Congress is more ethical.[...] This must just burn the lefts britches. No matter what they say about the Tea Party people think better of them then Congress and the left. People aren't listening to the left any more. The left have become untrustworthy and too agressive for most American to even waist their time with. Do you remember what a joke the hippies became? It's happening again to these neo-revolutionaries. But for us to a powerful force for real conservative change we must become bigger. We need to get more people involved in this conservative movement. And as much as the left want to paint us as being as violent,hateful and dangerous as they are we must never ever act like them. That is what they want of us. If even one conservative acts like a liberal they will pin it on us all. But it is up to us to start defining what PC is. We need to remind people of the left and their history of blood,hatred,riots,beatings,racism,violence and intimidation. Remind them of all the left wing radicals that Obama has in his admin. Pass the word on that the Progressives in America have no place in our government. It's time to move forward and do what we know will work. And when you see a liberal tell them what American voters think of them vs. the Tea Party members. The Socialist leaders Pelosi and Reid both have approval ratings less then 11%. 11%. Reid is at 8% approval. Those are the lefts leaders. You really have to suck to not even be in the teens. At least Americans love the Tea Party members. See you at the next TEA Party rally.
