POLL: Majority Says Tea Party More in Touch With Reality Than Congress. “The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 52% of U.S. voters believe the average member of the Tea Party movement has a better understanding of the issues facing America today than the average member of Congress. Only 30% believe that those in Congress have a better understanding of the key issues facing the nation.” If this poll holds up, expect another U-turn on Tea Party-bashing.

Plus this: ‘Interestingly, Obama’s worst issue by far is immigration. Only 33% approve of his handling of immigration issues, while 43% disapprove, 28% strongly so. Obama has expressed interest in taking on immigration with the ObamaCare fight mainly over, but these numbers suggest that he may want to wait until after the midterm elections.”

Plus, from the comments: “Time for Waxman and Stupak to call the pollsters in for hearings.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: But among Democrats, voter enthusiasm is up. And trying to excite that base is probably the real reason for all the attacks on opponents this week.
