Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) encouraged Republicans to stop listening to the Tea Party, saying the country doesn't care about the grassroots conservative movement.So only 47% care about the Tea Party? So what does this say about his president?
"The country doesn't care much about the Tea Party,” Reid said Wednesday. “There is a new CNN poll out today that says this very directly.”
Reid was referring to a CNN poll released on Wednesday that said only 47 percent view the Tea Party in a favorable light.
Half of Americans don't believe President Obama deserves a second term, a new Quinnipiac poll found - while showing his lowest approval ratings ever.It's safe to say both of these polls oversampled Democrats, so we're thinking the Tea Party is likely more popular while Obama is even less popular.
The survey, released Wednesday, reveals that just 41% of voters think the President deserves to be reelected in 2012.
Meanwhile, his overall approval rating has dropped four percentage points since early March to 42%.
But keep it up, Dingy. The more you talk, the more Democrats and your leader Obama sink.
It's quite obvious Reid's only hope to cling to power as Majority Leader is to create a divide between Tea Partiers and elected Republicans, hoping to split votes in some states. I just don't think people are dumb enough to fall for such transparent nonsense. While it may have worked to help get him re-elected, he greatly underestimates the fact Tea Partiers for the most part already were voting Republicans and grew in popularity as a conservative movement.
Clearly Reid has his marching orders. He brings up Tea Partiers at every opportunity while Chuckie Schumer calls everyone an extremist. It isn't working.
