    A Politico poll pitted the opinions of a thousand people nationwide against those of what Politico called "227 Washington elites," defined as college graduates living in the D.C. metro area and earning more than $75,000 a year at a political job.



    In the Beltway, the president has a 66 percent favorability rating; versus 48 percent from other Americans. The national group thinks a generic Republican would edge President Obama by five points in 2012, but Washington elites see the president cruising to a two-to-one victory. Sixty-eight percent of elites say the Tea Party movement is a fad and will go away soon -- a view held by only 26 percent of others.
