The actual numbers of the poll tell me that the likely voters polled are not true Tea Party conservatives. I’m sure many of you won’t disagree that many independent and liberal voters support Mitt Romney in the polls over Obama, because they regret voting for Obama. They believe he has taken spending too far and Romney is the most liberal guy in the GOP group. I’ll tell you all right now that Mitt’s plain is to claim he is some kind of moderate candidate. This hogwash about middle ground is getting really old. Your either conservative or your not.
Anyways, my point is, is that this poll doesn’t indicate anything except that those with liberal or other than true conservative views support Mitt Romney more than any other GOP candidate. It does not reflect who true conservatives want to be a candidate. Let’s look at the actual numbers for the 1,000 polled. These are all relative to the numbers for June 2011.
If we look at the poll numbers:
- 49% of the polled approve of Barack Obama’s job, 46% disapprove, and 5% are unsure. 54% disapprove of the way he is handling the economy. 59% either feel “very positive”, “somewhat positive”, or “neutral” about the democratic party during June 2011. Whereas, 68% either feel “very negative”, “negative”, or “neutral” about the GOP. 41% feel negative toward the Tea Party versus 28% negative, whereas 31% are unsure or neutral.
- 51% of those polled believe government should do more! 46% think it does too much. Hello! All these numbers should throw up a red flag.
These numbers tell me that the likely voters polled are not in fact representative true conservatives. It is obvious the majority polled are all either Libs, Independents or RINOS. Whatever you want to label them, I don’t care, they just are NOT conservatives. To show without a doubt that this poll does NOT represent the true Tea Party conservative, look at the following numbers:
- 46% of the polled said they would vote for Obama in 2012. 15% where undecided or would vote for another party, or said it depends on the opponent. Only 40% said they would definitely vote Republican.
This poll should not give us any doubt about the thrashing Obama and the Liberals are going to receive in the upcoming election of 2012. Whether it is Romney, Paul, (hope not), Gingrich, Pawlenty, Santorum, Bachmann, or Cain (hope so), we need to defeat Obama!
