Tennesseans really like Sen. Lamar Alexander and Gov. Bill Haslam

From Dru's Blog
Tennesseans really like Gov. Bill Haslam. Vandy's May poll shows a 63 percent approval. Sen. Lamar Alexander also polls well with a 53 percent approval. Both Republicans are up for re-election state-wide in 2014. Is either likely to be "primary-ed" by a more conservative Tea Party candidate? Not likely. Alexander has a 62 percent approval from […]

  1. Now who is surprised about this poll. A group of 100% liberals from Vanderbilt. Liking Alexander would be about right. Tea party conservatives do not like Alexander. Let me repeat, they do not like him at all.

    1. Thanks for the link. Be sure to read part 2:

      "Remember Alexander’s words from a 1990 Southern Living magazine article, “The conclusion I’ve come to,” he explains, “is that rather than tinkering with the same old vehicle, it would be better to start from scratch. I suggest we create a brand-new American school, as different from today’s schoolhouse as the telegraph was from the Pony Express. “Such a school,” he continues, “would probably start with babies and go through the eighth grade. It would be all year long. It would be open 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Every child would have his or her own computer and workstation. Every child would have a team of teachers that would stay with that child until graduation.”

      Part 3 is Lamar! and Common Core.

  2. Lamar! is viscerally reviled by the Conservative base of the party. I don't know ANY Conservative who approves of him. The fact that he is the 6th most liberal Republican Senator is all the proof one needs that he is out of step with Tennessee. It's time we elected a new and Conservative Senator.

    ...and to quote Lamar! from his book, "Two terms and OUT !" No THIRD term for this guy.
