Thanks to Barack Obama and IRS Tea Party Approval Jumps 14 Points Since January
Thank you, Barack Obama.
Thanks to the growing IRS scandal and governmental discrimination of conservative groups, the Tea Party approval rating jumped 14 points since January. Today 44% of voters have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party compared to 44% who don’t.
Favorables for the Tea Party have jumped since news broke that the Internal Revenue Service was targeting the grassroots movement and other conservative groups.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 44% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party. That’s up 14 points from January but still down from April 2009’s high of 51% when the Tea Party protests against President Obama’s spending policies first erupted.
Forty-four percent (44% ) also now view the Tea Party unfavorably, although that’s down five points from earlier this year. The latest findings include 18% with a Very Favorable opinion of the movement and 25% with a Very Unfavorable one. Thirteen percent (13% ) are undecided.
