Reid Still Trying to Convince Us That He's An Idiot

Question for Harry Reid. If the Tea Party is of so little relevance, why are you talking about it?

“This is the first time that a CNN poll has shown the tea party's unfavorable ratings as high as those of the two major parties,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “It looks like the rise in the movement's unfavorable rating has come mostly among people who make less than $50,000.”

According to the survey, 47% of those surveyed said they had an unfavorable view of the tea party, a collection of different groups that are loosely united in their view of opposing big government, taxes and spending. The number of those who see the tea party in a negative light has increased 21 points since January 2010, when the group was becoming a significant force in fielding conservative candidates in GOP races around the country.

Let's see. The Tea Party is viewed unfavorably by 47% of Americans while the Democrats are viewed unfavorably by 48%. So, Reid should be saying - "The Tea Party is now nearly as unpopular as the two major political parties!"
