LOL! Fox asks what the tea party is all about. Number one choice with 77% of the vote: Fruitless mix of racism, conspiracy theories

I assume that this thread is intended to be funny nonsense, but in case it is not...

Quote:

Whether bitter or sweetened, the tea is winning admirers. According to the latest CBS News/New York Times poll, roughly 1 in 5 adult Americans identifies with the Tea Party movement, which scored its first major victory last month when Republican Scott Brown won the Massachusetts Senate seat long held by the late Democrat Ted Kennedy. Brown's promises to bolster U.S. defenses against terrorists and block Obama's health care reforms gave him a blinding Tea Party aura, the glow of which sent fear through the Administration and fried the circuits of Congress. But you can no more trace that aura to a home address than you can pinpoint the rainbow's end. The Tea Party is not a political party, not yet, and maybe never will be. Rejecting the idea " widely held by Democrats " that a government of brainy people can solve thorny problems through complex legislation, the Tea Party finds its strongest spirit among conservative Republicans. Yet a powerful current of "blame both sides" also pulses through the movement. "We're equally disgusted with Republican and Democrat Congressmen," says Lynne Roberts, a volunteer organizer of a Tea Party gathering in Albany, N.Y

@engineer,
That result must be the work of other internet communities stuffing the ballots, that can't be real.

It is interesting to contrast the claim by a2k liberals that the Tea Party is mostly a bunch of dumb hicks with a CNN poll that indicates that they tend to be more educated and more wealthy than the average citizen. A better study is called for.

I don't know, David, but I wouldn't be shocked if tea-baggers were thought to be anti-gay. They're apparently already considered to be racist and full of mmmm conspiracy theories.

@hawkeye10,
Interesting research hawkeye..

I loved this question that appears like it was polled 10 years from now.


Quote:

Given money to any organization
associated with the Tea Party
movement
February 12-15, 2020 2%


I guess the Tea Party is going to die a slow death if it's true.


With only 124 respondents and an error of +/-9, I think an actual study is called for not just a better one.

@parados,
the tea party is currently a social media movement (internet), they have nearly zero need for money at this point. I believe that few have given money because few have been asked to.

@hawkeye10,
But won't they need money between NOW and 2020 if they want to have any effect in the next 10 years?

(I think you missed the humor in typo.)

But all that aside. Only 5% of the country has attended a rally, give or take the 3% margin of error.

what percentage do you figure has attended an D or R event during that time frame? I dont think that most people care enough of about politics to put that kind of time into it. I see the 5% as rather impressive

@hawkeye10,
With a 3% margin of error, I can say that 3% of the country personally attended the inauguration in DC which doesn't include those that attended events around the country.
