Ginni Thomas on Tea Party: ‘There Is A Big Tidal Wave Coming’

Forget what the polls are saying about a drop in support for the Tea Party –the only poll that matters is the one held on November 2, Ginni Thomas, the CEO of the conservative group Liberty Central, told me on "GMA" this morning.

Thomas was responding to our latest ABC News/ Washington Post poll that showed a lessening of support for the Tea Party candidates. Only 32% said the Tea Party will change Washington while 63% said they will not.

“I don’t know about that, I think it’s pretty popular out there from what I see,” Thomas, who is also the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, said.

“I don’t think it’s a partisan thing going on, I think it’s a principal thing. I think it’s an American thing. I think people are rebelling and there is a big tidal wave coming,” she said.

That "tidal wave" of change could still come – even if it is smaller than polls originally indicated. One candidate who is campaigning on that change is GOP Delaware senate candidate Christine O’Donnell.

Last night O’Donnell released a new ad taking her previous witchcraft comments head-on by saying “I'm not a witch. I’m nothing you’ve heard. I’m you.”

So will the ad work?

“I think they are all effective when it’s genuine, authentic people coming to Washington to have change. I think that is what people are looking for,” Thomas said.
