More evidence of tea party FAIL

I've documented on several occasions the fact that local tea party rallies are getting smaller and smaller, and are failing to meet their goals. Unfortunately, the media narrative has not yet caught up to that fact. But today there's more evidence for my hypothesis; namely, public support for health care reform has increased over the month of September. And of course there's this nugget:
Fifty-seven percent of the public -- including 56% of independents -- say the GOP is opposing reform plans more for political reasons than because they think reform will be bad for the country.

Looks like all of the screaming, shouting, and media grandstanding has not actually been very effective at swaying public opinion.
