Scott Rasmussen, President of Rasmussen Reports, a widely respected polling company. For years, Rasmussen polling has helped legislators, business leaders, and the general public gain a sense of the country’s opinions on any number of important issues.
Recently, Scott teamed up with pollster Doug Schoen on a new book, entitled, “Mad as Hell: How the Tea Party Movement is Fundamentally Transforming our Two-Party System” which delves in to what the tea party movement is, what it believes, and the impact it will have on our nation. Before a book event here at The Heritage Foundation, Scott sat down with us for a short interview.
We discussed the values of the tea party movement, the early and persistent underestimating of the movement by many who didn’t recognize its broad appeal, and Obamacare’s consistent unpopularity among the American people.
