    Here, let me fix this. It was about me. I apologize. OK, back to the topic.

    What a shame. Predictable, but a shame nonetheless.
    The tea party, such as it was, has been almost entirely co-opted by the establishment they seek to overthrow.

    What a shame. Our system is broke and no one with the power to fix it has any incentive to do anything about it.
    I may be wrong.

    Its hard to find less tax and no government intrusion less disirable. Maybe the TV is absorbing too much of the TEA party and anti-chauvinists see it as tainted. (A.K.A. maybe they think Palin will try to lead the TEA movement)

    This is a weak attempt by CNN to try and paint the entire tea party movement as a bunch of gun-totin, barefoot hillbiliies, and then try to then paint the Republican party with the same brush.

    It's akin to saying every Democrat is a member of Code Pink.

    Re: CNN Poll: Unfavorable view of tea party on the rise

    This is merely my humble opinion. I was very excited over the teaparty and I attended 3 or 4 local teaparty Rallies. At those rallies I saw all working class americans mostly babyboomer types. We were scared to death of what we were seeing in our country. We never would have believed the debt we were falling into. They were afraid of the rise of china and Obamacare and the taking of 500 billion from medicare and on and on.
    After the election the perception became that the teaparty was giving away tax cuts like candy, they crying that we were broke and blaming public workers for it and attacking them and that isnt playing well with america. Most republicans are not far right and are working class americans public and private sector.
    They should be attacking illegal immigration, Foriegn aid..Im all for defunding for ridiculous organizations like ACLU, AARP, planned parenthood, the outright attack and rhetoric against the working class has turned me and many others off the teaparty.
    I dont care what all my conservative friends say on this forum...Scott Walker acted like he was a god or The chief storm trooper...first thing he does is give away big corporate tax cuts then viciously attack the working class and Dictating, Scott walker caused all the chaos in Wisc by his actions, his domineering rhetoric and his actions. He did it ALL WRONG. He could have gotten everything he wanted like Ohio without the gestapo crap and vilifying the workers.
    He didnt do what christie has done..Christie has had town hall meetings after town hall meetings EXPLAINING why hes doing what hes doing without vilifying the workers...he isnt playing the blame game.
    The teaparty needs to back off attacking the working class and giving the perception all our debt woes are their fault...or they will continue to slide.
    Simple truth the super majority in this country is the working class.

    I say it's a great day in this country, when our government is that afraid of the people.
    Actually, I think the poll is saying the people are scared ****less of Angle and O Donnel...

    There are other links showing that more than CNN has picked up on this trend.

    Here you go MaggieD. Nate Silver is an excellent statistician and has more info on the subject.

    Poll Shows More Americans Have Unfavorable Views Tea Party - NYTimes.com

    here is a link to questions Politics from the nate silver article. Theres a crapload in there from CNN polling.
    Excellent post.

    But Maggie is correct to examine how polls are worded.

    That is what happens with loose organizations that truly do not ask for strict adherence to specific policy measures. With populist movements, you need broad-based appeal, which incidentally will not include most libertarian positions. Those bemoaning the success of the movement have no one to blame but themselves.
