    Default Tea Party-First Natl. Convention- more popular then rep or dem party

    Tea Party more popular than Dems, GOP

    Filed Under: Democrats, Republicans, Polls


    From NBC's Mark Murray and Domenico Montanaro
    Just how angry is the public with the country's two leading political parties? Angry enough that the conservative, libertarian-leaning Tea Party movement is more popular than either the Democratic or the Republican parties, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    The Republican Party maintains its net-negative favorable/unfavorable rating in the poll, with 28 percent viewing it positively and 43 percent seeing it in a negative light.

    For the first time in more than two years, the Democratic Party also now holds a net-negative fav/unfav, at 35-45 percent.

    By comparison, the NBC/WSJ poll shows the Tea Party movement with a net-positive 41-23 percent score.

    Yet looking inside those numbers, more than three-quarters (76 percent) of those who say FOX News is where they get their news see the Tea Party movement positively, versus just 4 percent who see it negatively.

    That's a stark contrast to how viewers of the competing cable networks CNN and MSNBC see the movement. More of those viewers have a negative opinion of it (36 percent) than a positive one (24 percent).

    Those who get their news mostly from broadcast TV (either NBC, CBS or ABC) are split -- 28 percent view it positively, versus 27 percent who view it negatively.

    The entire NBC/Journal poll comes out at 6:30 pm ET

    Before I left work today (half a day - no work), I heard Glenn Beck on the radio - warning people about the GOP trying to co-opt the Tea Party movement.

    Many in the tea party movement (a thread I posted a couple weeks ago) are trying to take over the gop.......... So it would only be natural the gop would try to do the same.........

    I think I read earlier today that Palin is going to be speaking & encouraging them to stick w/ the gop.............

    I am not sure what to think about it @ this point......... It is not a party, yet, but the movement is bigger than either party says a lot about the weight they can throw around......

    They don't seem to have coherent agenda & agreed upon goals but a lot of that could be hammered out here... Also I think once they set those goals & ideals some are gonna walk away......

    They are united in stopping the destruction of this country and its Constitution by the current regime.

    The rest is inside baseball.

    Then they are a day late and a dollar short. They should have worried more about the previous regime.

    It's better to be united as one than to be ripped, shattered and parted out....

    Liberals haven't been in a position of power since the days of Lyndon Johnson, Binky. I believe if you really take an unbiased look at it you will find that this country has moved to the right over the past forty years and that it has been governed mostly by conservative and neoconservative policies.
