“Tea Party” Polls Better Than The GOP
A new Rasmussen survey shows that if the Tea Party were an actual political party it would poll better than the Republican Party.
In the national telephone poll of 1,000 likely voters released Monday, 23 percent said they preferred to vote for a candidate from the yet unformed “Tea Party” for Congress in 2010. The Republican Party trailed the non-existent political organization by 5 percentage points, getting the support of 18 percent of respondents.
Democratic candidates were preferred of 36 percent.
Forty-one percent of all respondents said they had a favorable view of the s0-called “Tea Party.” Among Republicans, a favorable view is held by 70%.
