New Gallup Poll: Tea Party Less Popular than Russia, Communist China

 

The poll found that, surprise!, 70% of Teabaggers are conservatives, which means the 43% of the movement's so-called "independents" are white men voters who pull the lever for the GOP, but don't want to call themselves Republicans after George W. Bush's pooch-screwing and with the cast of clowns currently running the party.

What's interesting, however, is that only 37% of Americans view Teabaggery favorably.

Translation: the Teabaggers are really unpopular.

By comparison, President Obama's favorability number is nearly 20 points higher at 55% - while Russia and China come in at 47% and 42% respectively.

The good news for the Teabaggers is they are still slightly more popular than Saudi Arabia (35%) and the Quitter (36.8%).

Listening to the pundits today it appears to have been a good week for Obama.

We should rememeber the wise words of Comrade Stalin:

"Those who cast the votes decide nothing.

Those who count the votes decide everything."

As experience has shown, they are especially applicable to the United States.

Online polls. Really? How many seniors, who vote disproportionate to their numbers did it reach? Ohhh... its "weighted" so the three seniors it reached are counted as twenty people each.

Blaaah, polls are like poop... depending on what you put into it is what it's going to smell and look like in the end.

Who the fuck changes thier mind on who to vote for based on a poll?

3 of the last 5 polls are showing Romney ahead, and these polls results are primarily before Romney added Ryan to the GOP ticket.

And don't think for one second if the GOP wins it will not have a detrimental effect on working people in Canada.

Curious about the US pollsters. Some political websites have removed both Gallup and Rasmussen from their polling stats because they seem to be inconsistent with the rest of the pollsters.

Anyway here is the latest CNN poll

Let's be serious for a moment - nobody changes their own mind in America. Plutocrats pretend to hold free and fair elections every two and four years, and some pathetically low percentage of Americans pretend to vote. Everyone and their dog knows elections in the USSA are rigged in favour of the oligarchy.

Ralph Nader wrote:
"It is now a well-accepted fact that our system for financing presidential and congressional campaigns is fundamentally corrupt and pernicious. The only way to ensure effective and honest representation by lawmakers is through decisive campaign finance reform, with public funding of campaigns."

Ralph Nader on bought and paid-for cosmetic governments in Washington with "Defense" controlling the lion's share of the budget every year religiously as the real economy goes down the poop chute.

The only thing that seems to change with elections is the names on donor thank you lists which exclude the general public.

And they would be donors representing about one percent of the population in America. 

If Americans want a voice in the halls of power, they will have to hire a corporate lobbyist at tens of thousands of dollars per half-hour.

A better betting site is IEM. Which has been around longer, is smaller but with more sophisticated participants than intrade. Obama has taken off there the last couple of days.

Rasmussen probably reduced Romney's support prior to the GOP Convention in order to try and show that he has some kind of post-convention bounce in the polls.

Exactly.  And his poll has 4% more Republicans than Democrats.  Which has never happened in a presidential year in the history of polling.
