41 Million Tea Party Supporters Set to Vote
Breitbart ^ | 28 Sep 2012 | Dustin Hawkins

Posted on 09/28/2012 4:31:04 PM PDT by profit_guy

The Tea Party is regularly ridiculed and declared "dead" by the mainstream press and their elitist allies in Washington and Hollywood. Not surprisingly, when Tea Partiers show up and rally by the thousands, they get all but ignored, while 30 Occupy Wall Street crazies in masks will always get wall-to-wall coverage and admiration. TV shows and movies take cheap shots at Tea Party conservatives, often linking them to murder-of-the-week cases on insipid crime procedurals or dismissing them as “birthers.” But a new Associated Press poll shows tea party supporters may have the last laugh in November.

I like this from the comments section:

“If obama works really hard on this voting bloc I suspect he will change maybe 2 of those 41 million votes.”

BTW, folks, one thing to keep in mind. While we still have the SEIU to deal with, there is no ACORN this time around, and that’s big.

Don't be fooled so easily. The only thing that's changed about ACORN is the name.

Oh yeah, Acorn is still out there. For the last two days we have seen non stop video of one of their top execs telling us how to get a free cell phone from Obama.

Yes, there is an ACORN. They simply changed names and hid their efforts a bit better.

We do have Repub governors in the right places (OH, FL, VA) which I am sure will help prevent some corruption. Imagine if those 3 states were run by Dems.

Excellent! The Tea Party rides again. They are chomping at the bit waiting to vote. Maybe that’s why we are seeing Republicans requesting early ballots in Ohio in higher numbers than 2008. It’s a measure of voter intensity and the Democrats don’t seem to have much.

If we are to believe thhe sharp decline in Democrat registration across the swing states, ACORN is evidently not nearly so effective under its new name(s).

“The AP/GFK poll shows that 31% of likely voters consider themselves Tea Party supporters.”

I like the odds.

A since I'm in a firmly red state my family's votes for someone besides Obama/Romney are not going to determine the outcome but hopefully they'll send a message.

I think the Dems were seriously hurt by ACORN’s demise. Seriously. The SEIU is good at what they do, but they don’t live in the inner cities like ACORN did.

Vote as you wish, but you’ve got all Electoral college haters, like Fred Thompson, just waiting to pounce on another EC vs Popular Vote contest.

We need to win decisively in both tallies. Every vote does count this time through.

The pollsters are basing their turnout model on 2008, when the Tea Party never existed. They refuse to use the D+0 or D+1 turnout of 2010, based on exit polling. Rasmussen is closest but even he has D+2.

We all know this election won’t be a D+7 or higher turnout model for the Dems. In fact, they seem quite unenthused. With 41 million very enthused Republican (”very likely”) voters who are not being accounted for in the current polling models, you can certainly see where this is going to affect the presidential and down-tickets a lot, just like 2010. It’s not like these voters lost interest in the last two years...

I am counting on a CHICK FIL-A day on election day. The polling is not on our side but it was the same way in 1980. I am betting it will be a happy day in America.

Yeah, I really felt like Chick-Fil-A Day was a harbinger of things to come on November 7th. There’s a gigantic amount of frustration built up out there, and I think we’ll see wormsign the likes of which even God has never seen on election day.

My thought exactly. Failure to win the popular vote could result in undermining the Electoral College system. This is the only thing that stops the liberals from victory in every election by stealing millions of votes in states dominated by liberals. Our Founders INTENDED to limit the ability of the larger states to dominate the smaller. They knew there could be a problem.

Mentioned the Tea Party in passing the other day to someone and she said, “Are they still around?” The media have done a great job of making people think it’s disappeared. I offered to send her the link and she said, “I don’t have a computer.” What can you do with people like that, who get all their “info” from TV?

The reason why they hate and marginalize the Tea party is because it is the thing they are truly fearful of, and this included Sarah Palin.

Masses of ordinary people rebelling against socialistic agendas, Marxism, communism.

To them the Tea Party must be whipped into submission before Communism can thrive in America, if not the people will revolt and tear down the figurative Berlin Wall Obama is building.

Right now the most patriotic activity in America IS being a Tea Party member.

That’s why I can’t understand any Libertarian or Republican agreeing with the popular vote chorus.

You wanna break up the union? Then let the majority of states get dictated to by the population and media centers on the east and west coasts. When they find they’re values and concerns are no longer even discussed, there will be no other recourse.

It's similar to the argument regarding "democracy". The U.S. is not a "democracy", it is a "constitutionally limited democratic republic".

Our Founders understood the difference, the difference is dramatic, and the evils of democracy are what we are witnessing every day here.
