Pew Tea Party Republican support

The demise of the Tea Party movement has been predicted since its inception in early 2009.  There has been a non-stop demonization of the movement led by Democrats and the media, but frequently joined by party Republicans.

There also have been many misleading headlines based on cherry-picked polling, as I demonstrated recently, ...

This group of Tea Party supporters in Ithaca decided to carry signs outside Republican Tom Reed’s office, which must have felt like a poke in the eye to most Ithacans.

Hey, poking Ithaca in the eye is my job!

I’m not overly enamored of the complaint that Obama will negotiate with the Iranians, Syrians and Russians, but not with Republicans.

The complaint sounds a little whiny.

But it does prove a point. A point that I made long ago about how Obama treats the Israelis and other friends of the U.S., like ...

A comment by Chuck Schumer yesterday over Senate Democrats’ refusal to pass House funding bills for the NIH’s clinical trials for children with cancer, and similar House bills for veterans and national parks, pretty much sums up how Democrats’ seething hatred of the Tea Party movement has clouded Democrats’ thinking and ability to...

The President of the United States, Democratic Senators, Congressmen, and mainstream journalists have called us terrorists, suicide bombers, insane and racists because we actually want to keep our health insurance and doctors, and want other people to do the same.

It somehow is considered illegitimate and terroristic that we are...

No matter how much the elite media and establishment politicos want to kill-off Tea Party, it seems that we citizen activists refuse to roll over and die.

If anything, we are pushing back smarter as well as harder.

I told you just a couple of days ago that the Gallup headline of a decline in Tea Party popularity was misleading.

The misleading headline, ignoring the details of the poll, was picked up far and wide, Congrats @Gallup for inspiring these 5 misleading anti-Tea Party headlines.

The Week - Gallup Tea Party 9-26-2013

I covered earlier the negative spin Gallup put on its recent Tea Party polling.  What showed a stable support/opposition over the last two years — including a drop in opposition — was spun as a negative only by comparison to three years ago.

Gallup could have titled its report “No real change...

That’s not the headline you will see, of course.

Instead, Gallup headlines its story about its most recent polling to emphasize the negative about Tea Party support, Tea Party Support Dwindles to Near-Record Low.

But it you look at Gallups chart, it shows a 2% drop in support for...

Following the unfolding scandal of the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of the Tea Party, I keep the following thought in mind:

Neither party in Congress can be relied upon to satisfactorily resolve this issue.  They created the IRS, fund the IRS, and oversee the IRS.  All of this abuse happened on their...
