Grim News: Majority Says Tea Party More in Touch With Reality Than Congress

No wonder there's a full-court press on by the Democrats and their lapdog media to silence and smear the Tea Partiers.
In official Washington, some consider the Tea Party movement a fringe element in society, but voters across the nation feel closer to the Tea Party movement than they do to Congress.

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.
Frank Rich will be most upset to hear this news.

Meanwhile, despite the media's best effort at calling the implementation of socialized medicine a "victory" for Obama, he's right back where he was a week ago, meaning he's hugely unpopular.

This time last week were were treated to a media orgy of fabricated stories of "out-of-control" tea partiers in Washington, allegedly using the n-word and calling Barney Frank names, despite the slightest bit of evidence, tales that have become accepted fact.

Then why is it the media has ignored the ugly, vicious behavior of Harry Reid supporters in Neveda yesterday? Such behavior is documented with actual evidence while to this day none of the alleged incidents in DC have been shown to be anything but fabricated.

Update: I wonder now if Nancy Pelosi will recall how much she and tea partiers have in common?
