GRASS­ROOTS CON­SER­VA­TIVES SPEAK UP

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

The tea party is still very much in­tact in Amer­ica’s heart­land, and a rare poll of 3,200 “grass-roots con­ser­va­tives” in all 50 states could sup­ply news the Repub­li­can Party can use. The brief but sig­nif­i­cant sur­vey asked re­spon­dents to rank what — or who — is the big­gest con­trib­u­tor to an­noy­ing grid­lock in Wash­ing­ton. Was it Pres­i­dent Trump, the news me­dia or the po­lit­i­cal es­tab­lish­ment?

The dreaded es­tab­lish­ment came in first, fol­lowed by the me­dia and the pres­i­dent. Mean­while, a ma­jor­ity — 51 per­cent — pre­dicted that Congress will con­tinue to ob­struct and block Mr. Trump’s ef­forts to move for­ward. The sur­vey was con­ducted by the Con­ven­tion of States Project, a 2-mil­lion-mem­ber vol­un­teer group al­lied against big gov­ern­ment.
