Jerome Corsi - Polls are showing the American public has rejected President Obama's leftist politics, as the tea-party movement has gained momentum and independent voters are breaking hard to support Republicans, Jerome Corsi's Red Alert reports.
"Although President Obama and the Democrats have attempted to demonize the tea-party movement, the American public is moving away from the big government tax-and-spend politics of the radical new left that has now taken over the Democratic Party," Corsi wrote. "Republicans, however, should be cautious to realize the realignment of voters is at its base a reaction against incumbents as a whole."
Corsi noted that the tea-party movement will turn next on Republicans, if the Republican Party after the Nov. 2 mid-term election turns out to be a center-left party typified by politicians such as South Carolina's Lindsay Graham.
What is brewing below the surface in American politics is a states' rights movement unseen in this nation since the days of the Civil War, he explained.
"Relying on tools such as the Ninth and 10th Amendments, tea-party patriots are ready to push back against the expansion of federal authority into all aspects of American life," he wrote.
Corsi shared results from a new poll issued by the Pew Research Center that shows a major shift away from the Democratic party in 28 different categories of voters.
In 2006, 17 categories favored Democrats, helping the Democrats sweep to majority control in both the House and the Senate.
Now, in 2010, 23 of the 28 categories favor Republicans. Even more important, 22 of the 28 categories support Republicans by 49 percent or more.
The poll shows a dramatic shift of the electorate away from Democrats and toward Republicans in the last four years.
