Tea Party Poopers: Old, White, Evangelical, Men Spell Doom For The GOP

News Corpse » Tea Party Poopers: Old, White, Evangelical, Men Spell Doom For The GOP:

The fortunes of the Tea Party have declined considerably since their founding a couple of years ago. Majorities of Americans view them unfavorably and they have caused some notable electoral losses where otherwise a conservative Republican was expected to win.

A new survey by Pew Research reveals an even more troubling future if you’re an aspiring Republican. The survey indicates that most Republicans want to see their Party change. As a group there is some ambiguity about the direction of the change with some wanting to shift further right, and others wanting to become more moderate. However, when looking at the Tea Party, the favored direction is crystal clear. They want Republicans to be more conservative and less willing to compromise with Democratic colleagues.

In addition to the starkly partisan bent of the Tea Party, the survey also shows that they regard themselves as more likely to vote, particularly in primaries. That’s incredibly good news for Tea Partiers – and Democrats. For example, polls show Sarah Palin as the favorite for the Republican nomination for the senate in Alaska. However, the same poll shows her getting crushed by Democratic incumbent, Mark Begich.

On almost every issue – immigration, abortion, marriage equality, guns – the Tea Party is decidedly more right-wing. They advocate the most conservative policies across the board, and are the least accommodating to negotiations with Democrats. The problem this presents to the GOP is that their current batch of representatives have actual records that contain evidence of legislative bargaining. That is anathema to the Teabaggers. Consequently, they are more likely to back opponents in Republican primaries to oust the offending members.

Stalwart conservatives like Lamar Alexander and Mitch McConnell are already drawing primary challengers. Tea Partiers are blasting them as liberals who are in league with President Obama’s mission to destroy America. It takes a pretty hefty serving of delusion to accuse McConnell, who declared that his highest priority was to make Obama a one-term president, of being a progressive partner to the President.

Should the extremist faction of the party prevail, they will create opportunities for Democrats to swoop in and grab a seat they would not have otherwise had a chance to win. Just ask Senators Claire McCaskill and Joe Donnelly, or even Harry Reid. And the Republicans in congress are already setting the stage for defeat. They have the lowest favorable ratings in history, and they are responding to that by threatening to shut the government down, wasting time with meaningless votes, and performing in ridiculous pseudo-scandal hearings.

The most obvious differentiating characteristics of the Tea Party is that they are older, whiter, more devoutly Christian, and more likely to be men. That puts them at odds with the general population. Therefore, while they may enjoy some primary victories, the general elections will be more problematic. They are out of sync with the electorate both demographically and ideologically.

Last year Democrats defied the odds and toughed out some unexpected wins. In a year that many predicted would be bloody for them, Democrats gained seats in both the House and the Senate, and of course, Obama won reelection. Some of the credit for that goes to Tea Party Republicans who simply had no chance of carrying their races. And now they seem hell-bent on repeating that performance. Democrats should be prepared to send thank you notes to the GOP in November of 2014 if this trend keeps up.



And I, for one, am delighted at the prospect.- poet

How comical...especially when you consider...that's the big "pay-off" they'd derived, from caving to the 1%ers/high-roller$....who'd convinced them IGNORANCE was PATRIOTIC!!!

I'm constantly amused by the concern hyper partisan Democrats and Liberals have for the Republican Party and all their well intentioned advice.

If the Tea Partiers are nothing more than a bunch of fat old white racists that are doomed, why do Liberals spend so much time falsely denigrating them and predicting their demise?

I would think that rabid empty headed Liberals would be thrilled at the prospect and not want to make these fat old white racists aware of their demise lest they do something about it; like become Democrat light.

I am equally amused by the hyperbolic leftist rhetoric that denigrates those who believe they are Taxed Enough Already and in the Constitution are "extremists." I would argue that those who use the Constitution as a foot mat and argue for greater Government interventionism and re-distribution schemes that do nothing but create government dependency and an entitlement mentality are the true extremists.

Another moronic leftist tome containing nothing more than hyperbole, lies, distortions and a vast pile of wishful thinking.

But again, what could be more threatening to the empty headed emotion based Liberal ideologues than American sheeple realizing that they really are Taxed Enough Already?

What could possibly be more scary to the left?

You have a huge group of america who usually just sit back and argue in the bar.
Now they're standing up and have been pushed far enough to say "I'M DONE!"

What could be scarier then the backbone of the countries finances saying enough is enough?

It must scare them a lot to make such incredibly false claims and constantly rant ignorantly about them.

Perhaps what they fear the most is the loss of media control they had and a potential awakening of the American sheeple to the failure of their liberal Marxist based ideology? An educated independent thinking voting public would be the single worst thing to happen to Liberal Democrat ideologues.

They need gullible uninformed voters who swill their kool aid and actually think that people like Mitt Romney hate women, hate minorities and hate their dogs, and if placed in charge, will actually push grandma off a cliff.

It is stunning and amazing to me that such incredibly lame campaign tactics actually worked to get the most incompetent, inexperienced and economics challenged President in our century elected and then re-elected. PROOF of how badly the educational system in this country is failing this great Republic.

Watch this, you'll start to realize how right you are about the education system. Libs will sign anything.

Boy, you need to look up more and try to get the whole story before you accept the lies your spoon fed.

Did you hear this from the biased/racist/opinionated CNN?

You don't think that your clueless leftist blog cut and paste jobs are being led around by the nose?

What your posts indicate to me is an incredible level of denial and irony.

I don't think you have ever had an independent thought in your life. If you did, then you couldn't mindlessly denigrate those who merely disagree with your inept ideological views using clueless cut and paste jobs from leftist blogs.

You would be able to intelligently discuss how Obama has been anything but an incredible failure and anything but a leader.

But instead we are constantly treated to oversized emoticons and simple minded one liner rants that are anything but a serious attempt.

You define your own rhetoric of being someone who is led around by thier nose mindlessly parroting DNC leftist talking points. I doubt that you can even comprehend or intelligently discuss what it is you are for as long as it fits your narrow myopic ideological emotional feel good beliefs.
