    NEW POLL shows 90% of Americans support the platform of the Tea Party.

    But, when the poll questions changes to "Do you support children and the elderly eating", the poll climbs even higher. Then, that poll is used for media headline, "Most polled support Democrats". This is the logic of idiot libs who spew out lies to those who would watch or listen. Trying to manipulate the masses to their cooky upside down leftist ideology that fails again and again. Why not try to ask people if they think the Congress should be responsible? That poll would support the true Tea Party agenda, and would be in the 90's. Main stream media, and nut job partisan political hacks all over the internet...they want only to demonize their political opponents...because they cannot stand on the Truth.

      Why aren't Republicans more frightened of a shutdown and a default? Part of the reason is magical thinking

      BY AMANDA MARCOTTE | 10/10/2013 | Salon

      Why aren’t Republicans more afraid? The entire premise of both the government shutdown and the threats to force the government into debt default is that Democrats care more about the consequences of these actions than the Republicans do. REPUBLICANS MAY GO ON TV AND SHED CROCODILE TEARS ABOUT NATIONAL MONUMENTS BEING SHUT DOWN, BUT THE ACT ISN’T REALLY FOOLING THE VOTERS: THE ONLY WAY TO UNDERSTAND THESE FIGHTS IS TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE GOP IS THREATENING TO DESTROY THE GOVERNMENT AND THE WORLD ECONOMY IN ORDER TO GET RID OF OBAMACARE (AS WELL AS A PANOPLY OF OTHER RIGHT WING DEMANDS). JUST AS TERRORISTS USE THE FACT THAT YOU CARE MORE ABOUT THE LIVES OF THE HOSTAGES THAN THEY DO TO GET LEVERAGE, Republican threats rely on believing they don’t care about the consequences, while Democrats do.

      So why aren’t they more afraid? Businessweek, hardly a liberal news organization, said the price of default would be “a financial apocalypse” that would cause a worldwide economic depression. This is the sort of thing that affects everyone. HAVING A RIGHT WING IDEOLOGY DOESN’T MAGICALLY PROTECT YOUR INVESTMENTS FROM CRASHING ALONGSIDE THE REST OF THE STOCK MARKET.

      The willingness of Republicans to take the debt ceiling and the federal budget hostage in order to try to extract concessions from Democrats is probably the most lasting gift that the Tea Party has granted the country. More reasonable Republican politicians fear being primaried by Tea Party candidates. A HANDFUL OF WIDE-EYED FANATICS IN CONGRESS HAVE HIJACKED THE PARTY. THE TEA PARTY BASE AND THE HARD RIGHT POLITICIANS DRIVING THIS ENTIRE THING SEEM OBLIVIOUS TO THE CONSEQUENCES. IT’S NO WONDER, SINCE SO MANY OF THEM—PARTICULARLY THOSE IN LEADERSHIP—ARE FUNDAMENTALIST CHRISTIANS WHOSE RELIGIONS HAVE DISTORTED THEIR WORLDVIEW UNTIL THEY CANNOT ACTUALLY SEE WHAT THEY’RE DOING AND WHAT KIND OF DAMAGE IT WOULD CAUSE.

        Sentiment: Hold

    • Funny. If the average person was presented with any platform, either Dem/Repub or Tea Baggies, they'd agree with it. The "platform" is not the issue, is the execution of the platform and what will come after it that is the issue. So, the poll is meaningless.

      Heck, when you present Obamacare to the average person and don't call it Obamacare, they support that too.......nice try though.
