This might not end well

Rasmussen Reports released a poll yesterday that shows an as-yet-nonexistent “Teabagger Party” in the States would poll better than the GOP.  No, seriously:

Should the “Tea Party” movement organize itself to run congressional candidates across the country, it would poll better than the Republican Party, according to a new survey by Rasmussen Reports.

In the national telephone poll of 1,000 likely voters released Monday, 23 percent said they preferred to vote for a candidate from the yet unformed “Tea Party” for Congress in 2010. The Republican Party trailed the non-existent political organization by 5 percentage points, getting the support of 18 percent of respondents.  (emphasis mine)


However, this poll doesn’t give the Dems anything to write home about either, as it shows them being preferred by only 36% of likely voters (Rasmussen polls always favour the right, but still…).  And while 23% might not sound massive, recall the bizarre special election in New York’s 23rd last month.  Teabagger candidate Doug Hoffman started his run with a similar gap, and ended up losing by a mere 2.3%.  It’s not inconceivable that there could be a few teabaggers elected next year, and in 2012 they might even have a chance  at putting a teabagger in the White House.

A teabagger? In the White House? If that happens, it’s definitely Zombie Wall time.
