CBS News touts Gallup poll showing supposed decline, ignores own poll showing rapid rise in Tea Party support
I told you just a couple of days ago that the Gallup headline of a decline in Tea Party popularity was misleading.
The misleading headline, ignoring the details of the poll, was picked up far and wide, Congrats @Gallup for inspiring these 5 misleading anti-Tea Party headlines.
The Washington Post yesterday, however, revealed that the Tea Party popularity was rising, Obamacare fight reenergizes tea party movement (emphasis added):
"The tea party movement rose to prominence in the early years of Obamas presidency, helping drive a surge of conservative activism that helped flip control of the House to Republicans in 2010. At the time, according to CBS-New York Times polling, nearly a third of Americans considered themselves tea party supporters.
The movements popularity, though faded, shows signs of growing again: A quarter of Americans in a new CBS-New York Times survey between Sept. 19 and 23 said they support the tea party, up four points from two weeks earlier."
So, to sum up, CBS conducted a poll showing that support for the Tea Party was rising rapidly, yet buried the finding, running instead a headline about a Gallup poll showing a supposed drop.
Funny how that works.
While the NY Times did not highlight the Tea Party support findings in its articles, at least it didnt run the contrary Gallup findings either.
Other than the WaPo article linked above, I cant find any media references to the rise in Tea Party support reflected in the CBS-NYT poll.
You have been fed a false media narrative of collapsing Tea Party support. Not just false, but completely the opposite of what is happening on the ground.

They can’t change reality. They can try to hide it and lie as usual, but they can’t change it.
Bad moon rising...for the dhimmi party.
I predict that many of these RINO Senators like Graham, McConnell, Cornyn etc. are going to be thrown out of office in a Primary, no less. Just like Bennett in Colorado (I think)....
These RINOs need to be humiliated completely and told to “go the hell home or wherever, but get your ass out of Washington - you have no honest business there.”
I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m having a heckuva time finding anyone who’s happy with Obama or his Unaffordable Health Plan (Ozerocare). Folks are mad.
I think we’re pulling in a lot of conservative union members here in Michigan. I know most of my neighbors hold strong tea party sentiments.
Does your area vote GOP?
Did you expect them to highlight it?
You must not hang out with enough folks from the Parasite Class
The media fears another 2010 Blitzkrieg, which is why their pushing this phoney ‘fading’ narrative.
We are back with a vengeance! No RINO or RAT is safe!
I dont know about the rest of you but Im having a heckuva time finding anyone whos happy with Obama or his Unaffordable Health Plan (Ozerocare). Folks are mad.
Try a random call to the Peoples Republik of Maryland.
The ones that Primary out the RINOS need to learn how to handle the media and choose their words and battles a little better than in the past.
The media destroyed Akin and Mourdock over innocent quotes that were easy to twist. They should simply tell the media assassins to shove it and refuse to answere their stupid questions on abortion and gays.
Remember that we lost Congress in ‘06 mostly because of the non-stop media bashing of a guy in Florida who exchanged flirty e-mails with a legal-aged aide and a guy who used a single word that the media had to dig deep to find an offensive reference to
Me? If I were running, I’d go with “Show-vote Lies” and the meaning of what a Traitor is, especially to conservatism. That message, and that message only.
Lets start that conversation by acknowledging we arent going to deport 12 million illegal immigrants... bringing these workers out of the shadows and into being taxpaying members of society. Imagine 12 million people who are already here coming out of the shadows to become new taxpayers.12 million more people assimilating into society. 12 million more people being productive contributors. [but hes not in favor of amnesty, snicker, definition of is is]
...by softening its edge on some volatile social issues and altering its image as the party always seemingly "eager to go to war... We do need to expand the party and grow the party and that does mean that we don't always all agree on every issue" ... the party needs to become more welcoming to individuals who disagree with basic Republican doctrine on emotional social issues such as gay marriage... "We're going to have to be a little hands off on some of these issues ... and get people into the party," Paul said.
Get your news somewhere else.
I do. That's how I found this expose.
The Zombie MSM is hurting so bad, the blood is flowing from their mouths, eyes and ears, heads are exploding...it’s so much fun to watch, just ahead of horror movie month.
- The Tea Party is here to stay no matter what the media pundits or their manipulated polls say -
Just sent the Tea Party a check — something I don’t intend to do for the GOP.
>These RINOs need to be humiliated completely and told to go the hell home or wherever, but get your ass out of Washington - you have no honest business there.<
Have you seen what their retirement benefits are after they arrive home?
Yes I know...the benefits are outrageous....however the opportunity to be rid of them, and to stop any like them dead in their tracks before they get established is more beneficial.
I credit the Occupy movement with a lot of the first-time-buyer gun sales.
People finally got a chance to get a good glimpse of the Parasite Class.
Add the faces of OWSers to the faces we see everyday on the news of all the Sons of Obama and their deeds, and people are rightly scared.
I’ve bought 6 more guns and thousands of rounds of ammo since the Putrid Protestors made their appearance, because I know full well that those are the faces we will be seeing as they try to claw through our doors and windows when the freebies run out
They want government to control who is allowed to see a doctor the way Jerry Sandusky wants young boys. Many of them want what Sandusky wants too
It isn't any hard road finding them either. They will telegraph who they are and what they are.
These are the ones who insist that if you didn't vote for Romney you are responsible for Obama. Social conservatives voted third party or abstained because he started all this going in Massachusetts. He signaled he was willing to sign any bill forcing the Boy Scouts to accept homosexuals and he instituted gay marriage by executive order. The only way to turn opposing Romney on those principles into supporting Obama is to support the common agenda of the two.
Everyone I know is LIVID and, yes, the Tea Party will rise come 2014; count on it. The DC vermin can play clueless which will be their arrogant big mistake, IMO.
CBS sucks... but we already knew that, right?
Democrats I know don’t like it...
AND THIS MY FRIENDS IS WHY b.Hussein OBAMA AND LOONY Harry ARE ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT...T.E.A. PARTY..this and that...they are scared and lets keep them that way...
we can not depend on the MSM telling American Voters the full truth..we need to stay on this daily..
