Lower in approval than atheists and Muslims and right wing Khristians (sic). What does one have to do to get noticed in blog world, become a islamo-fascist-atheist-Allah loving Muslim christian progressive socialist to get some heat?
Perhaps people finally found it absurd a bunch of angry white people--rolling on their Medicare paid for scooters, organized and bought and paid for by the Koch brothers, wanting to go back to whatever uneducated dream of some mythical glorious Golden Age of A-Merry-Ca by abolishing taxes and federal government--claimed to speak for America.
[Polls show that disapproval of the Tea Party is climbing. In April 2010, a New York Times/CBS News survey found that 18 percent of Americans had an unfavorable opinion of it, 21 percent had a favorable opinion and 46 percent had not heard enough. Now, 14 months later, Tea Party supporters have slipped to 20 percent, while their opponents have more than doubled, to 40 percent.
Of course, politicians of all stripes are not faring well among the public these days. But in data we have recently collected, the Tea Party ranks lower than any of the 23 other groups we asked about — lower than both Republicans and Democrats. It is even less popular than much maligned groups like “atheists” and “Muslims.” Interestingly, one group that approaches it in unpopularity is the Christian Right.]
