Mad As Hell LP: How the Tea Party Movement Is Fundamentally Remaking Our Two-Party System
In Mad As Hell, pollsters Scott Rasmussen and Doug Schoen use extensive and original research to explore the mind and heart of the populist uprising that has thrown American politics into turmoil.
Though so-called professionals in politics, business, and media have dismissed the movement as marginal and extreme, Rasmussen and Schoen argue that it is an authentic grassroots movement of concerned American citizens demanding to be heard. The Tea Partiers are not racist rednecks and ignorant boobs. Their concerns are real and their issues are legitimate.
Todays populist revolt is hostile to the Washington political class, Wall Street, and the mainstream mediaall of which they consider out of touch with the concerns of real Americans.
In Mad As Hell, Rasmussen and Schoen have produced an authoritative guide to the new populism. It is must reading for anyone interested in American electoral politics for the remainder of the decade.

Essential to understanding America in 2010.
-The Daily Caller
What makes this new book a must-read ... is the reality that our daily news cycle is in many ways driven by the Tea Party.
What [Rasmussen and Schoen] convincingly show is that economic stagnation and the collapse of equality and opportunity have produced an equally catastrophic decline in confidence in every sort of public institution - including political parties, big business, big labor, the media and mainline organized religion.
-Los Angeles Times
