We saw some of the results of the Tea Party Movement at work in Massachusetts last night. A “money bomb,” an online money raising fund by bloggers for Scott Brown raised more than $1,000,000 in 24 hours, much of it from Tea Partiers across the country. All of it by conservatives. If you don’t understand the importance of this go here to research it.
From Rasmussen Reports today see how many Tea Partiers are in Massachusetts – a liberal state.
A Rasmussen Reports Election Night survey finds that Massachusetts voters are evenly divided over the so-called Tea Party movement. Forty percent (40%) of those who voted in today’s special election for the U.S. Senate have a favorable opinion of the Tea Party movement, while 41% regard it unfavorably.
Those figures include 23% with a Very Favorable opinion of the Tea Party movement and 29% with a Very Unfavorable opinion.
Most of those who earn between $60,000 and $100,000 a year have a favorable opinion of the movement.
Looking back, 51% of Massachusetts voters say the bank bailouts were a bad idea. Fifty-six percent (56%) also don’t like the bailouts for the auto industry.Data released earlier in the evening showed that the health care issue was most important for voters in today’s election. Twenty-two percent (22%) of Democrats voted for the Republican candidate Scott Brown.
