From Rasmussen Reports:
Fifty-one percent (51%) of Americans have a favorable view of the “tea
parties” held nationwide last week, including 32% who say their view of
the events is Very favorable.
Thirty-three percent (33%) hold an unfavorable opinion of
the tea parties according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone
survey. Fifteen percent (15%) are not sure.
Also interestingly from their survey, 25% of people said they knew someone who attended one of the events.
This seems to fly in the face of some reports that have tried to extrapolate roughly 250,000 people nationwide in attendance.
