NY Times/CBS News Poll: Tea Party More Popular than Barack Obama/Open Thread

What's good for the goose is good for the gander. The most recent NY Times/CBS News poll shows the following:


Tea Party movement: 26/20 [+6]
Barack Obama: 39/34 [+5]

If the Washington Post's polling team really wants to talk about someone's declining political standing, it needs to look no further than Barack Obama as his favorable/unfavorable rating has dropped a net 22 points in seven months and 45 points in a little over a year. It just goes to show you that it's a tough time for any politician in the spotlight, whether it's a liberal Democrat like Barack Obama or a conservative Republican like Sarah Palin.

Hopefully, David Broder's "endorsement" is worth ten points for the birthday girl. I don't agree with the Dean's policy recommendations but he rarely is wrong about the nature of politics.

By the way, there's still time to drop Governor Palin a birthday gift.

We're all wishing Bill Clinton a speedy recovery.

Chris Wallace's interview with Governor Palin "grew +35% week-to-week and drew its largest total audience since Nov. 1, 2009. 'Fox News Sunday' drew an additional 2.58M total viewers (473,000 demo) via cable replays. Chris Wallace's combined cable and broadcast total was his highest ever. Rebroadcasts of "MTP" drew an additional 1,050,000 total viewers.

Treat this thread as an open one. What else is going on tonight?
