Rasmussen: 93% of Self-Identified Tea Party Members Say They Support Rossi

I'm not sure how I missed this before, but in its latest poll, Rasmussen found even stronger Tea Party support for Washington U.S. Senate candidate Dino Rossi than SurveyUSA:

Twenty percent (20%) of Washington voters consider themselves members of the Tea Party movement, compared to 16% nationally. Sixty-two percent (62%) say they are not members, and another 18% are not sure.

Self-identified Tea Party members overwhelmingly favor the Republicans, with Rossi again running strongest with 93% support. Murray gets two-thirds of the votes of those who say they are not members of that movement.

Forty-three percent (43%) of the state’s voters view the Tea Party movement as good for the country, slightly below voter sentiments nationally, while 32% say it’s bad for America. Twenty percent (20%) say it’s neither.

Can we now end the whole "Tea Party vs. Establishment" narrative in the Washington state U.S. Senate race?

Yes the whole "Rossi is a Progressive" is getting old, we all need to get on the same page and back someone who can send Patty packing!
