You might recall how Twitter troll Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) is challenging Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) in this year’s Republican primary in Texas. You might also recall how Stockman is polling at just six percent against Cornyn, who Stockman refers to as “Liberal John Cornyn” when, in fact, Cornyn is the U.S. Senate’s second most conservative senator.
Stockman is a member of the tea party caucus in the House, but it turns out that the tea party doesn’t like him very much.
In a straw poll held by the Ellis County, Texas Tea Party, Stockman received exactly zero votes. Zero. None. Dwayne Stovall received 42 percent of the vote with Cornyn racking up just 18 percent of the vote in a field of eight candidates.
Stockman, meanwhile, continues to troll Democrats and Cornyn supporters alike with polling data about the Affordable Care Act, which he considers to be wildly unpopular even though the president’s healthcare law is polling at around 40 percent, which is significantly more popular Stockman — and his tea party caucus for that matter.
There’s really nothing more satisfying than watching a weirdo/blowhard choking on his own bile.
Steve Stockman Fever! Catch It!
