Despite Sen. Harry Reid's near-daily speeches about the “un-American” Koch brothers and the vast amount of money they give to the Republican Party - all while the Democrats take billions from other interest groups - Americans are still not convinced that campaign donations are the number one problem in politics right now.

That designation goes to media bias, according to 48% of the 1,000 likely voters polled for a Rasmussen Report. Big campaign contributions earned the #2 spot, with 44% of those polled.

Among people who identify as Tea Party members, media bias is an even bigger problem - 77% say it's the number one issue.

I wonder how the Administration will spin this poll? President Obama says the media is stacked against him, but I'm fairly sure that the voters polled are not talking about right-wing media, but instead the misnamed “mainstream media;” NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and The New York Times spring to mind.
