Most Say Tea Partiers Know More Than Congress

According to a new Rasmussen poll: Most Say Tea Party Has Better Understanding of Issues than Congress.

More details:

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of U.S. voters believe the average member of the Tea Party movement has a better understanding of the issues facing America today than the average member of Congress. Only 30% believe that those in Congress have a better understanding of the key issues facing the nation.
When it comes to those issues, 47% think that their own political views are closer to those of the average Tea Party member than to the views of the average member of Congress. On this point, 26% feel closer to Congress.
Finally, 46% of voters say that the average Tea Party member is more ethical than the average member of Congress. Twenty-seven percent (27%) say that the average member of Congress is more ethical.
This is astounding in its implications but not surprising.

After the Democrats pushed through their highly partisan, widely unpopular health care bill, commiting political hara kiri (i.e., "suicide" for you younger folks unfamiliar with WWII), it is hard not to think of them as morons.
