We’ve got a new poll up at Deep Something asking who you are planning to vote for (or who you voted for) by party. We just want to know if you are voting mostly for one party or the other, going independent, or sitting this one out.

The President and Democrats are working hard to motivate the base, but frankly they are scrambling because they clearly blew off the progressive wing of the party for the past two years, in some cases being verbally dismissive, and the “chickens have come home to roost.” A younger motivated electorate sent them to Washington with a mandate for big change, and we got a few tepid bills that have done nothing to improve our lives, and no advances on the social issues.

So while Democrats shouldn’t expect the same level of enthusiasm, it pains me to look at the crop of Republican candidates and think they could regain control of Congress. that’s just downright scary shit there.

So take our poll and tell us what you think.

Who are you voting for in the 2010 elections?

New Tea Party Poll at Deep Sand

We’ve added a poll today asking what you think about the Tea Party. Some people involved claim it’s non-partisan, and is a purely grass-roots organization of disaffected voters. There is some evidence that it is an Astroturf group sponsored by big business to help them advance their aims (I’m looking at you David Koch), and some folks believe it is definitely a part of the Republican Party.

I think some of the organizers have, as is often the case, seen an opportunity to make money, but those seem to have mostly failed. They also seem to be having a problem developing a cohesive message, but many in the movement would argue that’s the way it should be.

Let us know what you think.

What do you think of the Tea Party?
