TYT: Tea Party Now More Unpopular Than Ever



"The Tea Party is more unpopular than ever before, according to a Rasmussen poll released Monday, with just three in 10 voters holding favorable views of the movement. Half of respondents said they view the party unfavorably.

Those numbers represent a considerable dive in support since the Tea Party's heyday in 2009, when a majority of voters rated it favorably."*

You'd think that the Tea Party was really influential, judging by how Washington acts. Well, the truth of how many people like the Tea Party and are in it has been released by Rasmussen. What's going on, and why is the group still powerful? Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

1. isn't rasmussen considered a right-leaning poll ?????

so if IT is saying tea party is so unpopular, does that really mean the right is abandoning the far-right?

2. Same deal with the NRA

Their membership is actually quite small, and the majority of their membership is open to some common sense reforms. But Beltway politicians treat the NRA like it is some all-powerful thing.

Same thing with Grover Norquist. Who the hell is he and why should anybody care?

Conventional Wisdom is killing us.
