They highlighted the Politico story about the difference in opinion between elites and the people:
Obama is far more popular while Palin, the former Alaska governor, is considerably less so. To the vast majority of D.C. elites, the tea party movement is a fad. The rest of the nation is less certain, however, with many viewing it as a potentially viable third party in the future.
The survey also reveals to a surprising degree how those involved in the policymaking and the political process tend to have a much rosier view of the economy than does the rest of the nation — and, in some cases, dramatically different impressions of leading officeholders, political forces and priorities for governing.
Morning Joe really pushed this today and it is to their credit since they are part of that elite. It’s one of the reasons why although they drive me crazy often I just like them. They remind me of my family, you like them even when they drive you nuts.
Why this doesn’t have a memeorandum thread is beyond me.
The poll itself is here.
Update: Memeorandum thread now up.
