Rasmussen’s latest reveals more evidence that President Obama’s strongest supporters aren’t strongly connected with reality.

Voters think most radical Muslim groups in this country should be under close surveillance by the government as possible terrorist threats but are a lot less suspicious of Tea Party groups. President Obama’s supporters, however, feel similarly about monitoring both groups.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 57% of Likely U.S. Voters believe most radical Muslim groups in America should be monitored by the government as potential terrorists. Just 14% think most Tea Party groups should be monitored by the government as possible terror threats.

Crunch the numbers and one-fourth of Obama’s strong supporters are not so much into hopenchange anymore. They want some ruthless suppression of dissent.

Similarly, 26% of Obama’s supporters believe that Tea Party groups, not Islamist terrorists, are the nation’s top terror threat. So they’re pretty serious that Obama’s government should do things that when Richard Nixon did them, ended his presidency (see Article 2, sections 1 and 2).

Those folks must be pretty happy that the Obama IRS systematically oppressed Tea Party groups and leaders across the 2012 election cycle.

Are you saying that by dividing Obama supporters (presumably those that voted Democrat) by 57% you have a valid count of those Dems that don't trust Muslims? And somehow you think that translates into a desire for less hope or change? I guess I just don't get your math, or you haven't explained it very well.

You might just want to take your numbers from this poll rather than trying to extrapolate your results incorrectly: Poll: Many Americans uncomfortable with Muslims – CNN Belief Blog - CNN.com Blogs http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2011/09/06/poll-many-americans-uncomfortable-with-muslims/

As to the IRS targeting only Tea Partiers, that's been so debunked it's embarrassing to read anyone repeating it. Even Boehner told Issa to drop the investigation when it was found that keywords such as Israel, progressive, liberal etc netted IRS investigations into such diverse groups as the MidWest News Association and Greenpeace.

There are many real issues to be irate about, and these aren't even close.

Where have they been? Did they miss the IRS scandal? The NSA is watching EVERYONE, including them.
