Good ole Dick Armey, conservative activist and former Republican leader in the U.S. House, is blowing smoke again.
Armey, one of the principal windbags behind the Tea Party movement, made this statement the other day: "Right now the Tea Party polls higher than the Republicans and the Democrats."
Only one minor problem here: It's a lie.
PolitiFact has checked out Armey's statement. It's wrong.
As PolitiFact put it, "the pollsters who conducted the survey say it's not accurate to say that the party is more popular than Democrats or Republicans."
