Polling the Tea Parties

Share

Are you a little annoyed with the polling about the Tea Parties?  The Pink Flamingo is.  I thought I would create a poll I wish would be used to judge the actuality of the Tea Parties.  The problem is NO ONE has the courage to execute this poll.

The Pink Flamingo admits to being a bit discouraged lately.  I do not hesitate in my criticism of the Tea Party “Patriots” and the damage I think they are doing to the GOP.  I am disgusted over the fact that this movement, created by FOX News, has cowed Republicans into pandering and prostituting themselves to a bunch of people who are behaving like a bunch of spoiled, selfish brats.

On Saturday I heard a FOX comment that Rasmussen says something like 76% of all Americans are either part of the tea party or know someone who is.

Okay, I am NOT part of the tea party, but I know someone who is.

What a crock of a statistic.

I would assume at least 76% of the American people know someone who is politically independent.

According to the WSJ, which is owned by Rupert Murdock and is rapidly becoming nothing but a tea party scam, tea party activists are already planning their nasty little anti-Republican coups for 2012.

There are questions I want to hear from these polls.  Rasmussen is in the tank with the Tea Parties to promote his new book.  We aren’t getting decent polling questions from him.

You might notice there are no demographics in my version of a Tea Party Poll. I’m not interested in age, gender, race, education, or finances. I want to know about a person’s politics and if they truly are involved in the Tea Parties, or have not been asked the right questions.

  1. I don’t understand why any woman would vote for a tea party candidate. Unless she tows the line and walks the walk she may find herself without a job. The Ayatollah Jim Demint is already saying that he doesn’t want pregnant and unwed mothers teaching school. They appear to be trying to create a theocracy to impose their own moral values on other people. So get out your veils and burqas, girls, the tealiban is coming.

  2. I haven’t decided who I am going to vote for yet. Those questions you listed are good. I called the office of the republican candidate for congress and told them that if he was endorsed by the tea party I was not going to vote for him. They denied that he was in any way involved in the tea party movement, but Mike Huckabee came down here during the campaign. The democratic candidate calls himself a blue dog democrat who works for the people not the party. This is just another funny joke because he supports Pelosi on numerous issues. I have always considered myself a moderate republican, but this swing to the far right in the republican party is unsettling to say the least.
