Fox Own Poll Shows Tea Party, Palin Less Popular Than Obama
- A new Fox News survey shows that Americans remain deeply wary of the tea party movement, and strongly prefer Barack Obama to a hypothetical tea party candidate. And itâ€™s a result Fox News chose to bury in its reporting on the poll â€” choosing instead to highlight â€śanti-Obamaâ€ť voter sentiment. The poll, released by Fox News yesterday, shows that if given the choice between re-electing Barack Obama and electing a member of the tea party movement, Americans prefer Barack Obama 48% to 23%, a margin of 25 points.Foxâ€™s survey, conducted just over a week ago, shows that independents are still uneasy about trusting a member of the tea party movement with a position of power. Indeed, among independents, Barack Obama enjoys a 17 point lead.
