Rasmussen: 51% View Tea Parties Favorably, Political Class Strongly Disagrees


From Rasmussen:

Fifty-one percent (51%) of Americans have a favorable view of the “tea parties” held nationwide last week, including 32% who say their view of the events is Very favorable. … While half the nation has a favorable opinion of last Wednesday’s events, the nation’s Political Class has a much dimmer view—just 13% of the political elite offered even a somewhat favorable assessment while 81% said the opposite. Among the Political Class, not a single survey respondent said they had a Very Favorable opinion of the events while 60% shared a Very Unfavorable assessment. … David Axelrod, a top adviser to President Obama, on Sunday characterized the protests in dozens of cities on the day federal income taxes are due as potentially “unhealthy.”

Wow. It’s “unhealthy” when people disagree with the administration’s policies. I didn’t know that. I wonder if Obama’s health care plan will refuse to provide coverage for illness induced by protest. A pre-existing condition, perhaps?

  1. Of course the political class view these parties unfavorably. They understand what it means to their political longevity. They had better get their cranial rectal inversion treated or they will be drawing unemployment come 2010/2012.
