The rightwingers have been gloating over the lowering poll ratings of our president, relentlessly. But have you noticed they don't talk as much about the fact that the Congress is polling much lower than the president?
But here's the real kicker. On this blog and elsewhere, the rightwingers (especially the one I am now mostly deleting because of all the misinformation, misdirection and lying contained in his comments) almost all identify with The Tea Party.
And according to the latest Gallup poll on voters feelings about all kinds of groups (did you see this on Rachel Maddow?) including Muslims, atheists, gays, liberals, various ethnic and racially categorized groups, etc. the one they trust the least and would be least likely to vote to elect a member of is THE TEA PARTY!
So why exactly again is the Republican party, and the media, running scared from the Tea Party? There are other conservative groups, and liberal ones, that poll better, that have more members and that raise more money from members rather than from billionaire corporate backers ala The Tea Party. Oh, maybe that has something to do with it, the Tea Party's corporate backers, including Murdoch's Fox empire and the Koch brothers fighting with all their billions to prevent any regulation, and eliminate what little exists now, on their polluting coal and gas etc. industries.
