Hey, Tea Party, why all the fuss?

Phew! I just spent all morning looking at the data behind The New York Times' fascinating poll on the Tea Party movement. You've probably read the story by now. So -- tell the truth -- were you really surprised to learn that "[t]he 18 percent of Americans who identify themselves as Tea Party supporters tend to be Republican, white, male, married and older than 45"? It's good to have data to back up some rather convincing anecdotal evidence.

But here's what I don't get. Tea Partyers are mad as hell about the economy, and they think it's being run into the ground. Yet 74 percent say their current financial situation is "fairly good" compared to all adults surveyed (64 percent). When asked if they were concerned about losing a job and looking for work in the next 12 months, more Tea Party folks polled (44 percent) said they are "not concerned at all." That's better than the general public (37 percent). And most of them (58 percent) aren't afraid that they'll fall out of their current social class, which 50 percent say is "middle."

That's pretty good. So why are they so angry again?

There's so much more in that poll that goes beyond an examination of the Tea Party movement. So stay tuned. More tidbits are coming.

It is pretty obvious. While more secure than the general public, these are the people who listen to Beck and Limbaugh and lack the intellectual curiosity to appreciate the noise for what it is.

Also, what they REALLY resent is any of their taxes going to people with darker complexions. Racism, homophobia and anti-Semitism are core values of the TBaggers.

TBAggers are manipulated, incurious, inconsistent and confused.

Our financial situation is "pretty good" because we work hard, save and live within our means. We are "angy" because the government raises our taxes, wastes money on senseless pork and hands entitlements to folks who don't work at all, don't save, and don't live within their means. So what is it you don't understand, Mr. Capeheart?

CriticalThinker4,

i wouldn't disagree with your comments, IF you were talking about the PITIFUL fools, nitwits, morons, the UNwashed & the other "special interest groups" that NOW make up the DIMocRATS party.

and oh, yes, i almost forgot, the RACISTS (like Robert "KKK" Byrd, RACIST senator from WV) & other assorted BIGOTS that the DIMocRAT leadership HAPPILY embraces on election day.

we Tea Party folks KNOW precisely what we want.= we want BHO & his gang of Chicago thugs, Princess Pelosi, Harry Reid and every single person in Congress, who voted FOR "healthcare reform", OUT of the government FOREVER.

NONE of us want to hear any more LIES, weak excuses, "justifications, evasions or anything else BUT "i'm resigning" OR "poor, poor me, you just did NOT understand me & you voted me OUT. BOO HOO!"

as i said, on another thread, our family is NON-white, solidly middle class, mostly union members & we are GONE FOREVER from the Party of JFK, LBJ & the other traditional Democrats, as the wingnut, LEFTIST, radicals are "in charge" now.

say goodbye to us & thousands of other families, who are quite like us. we will NOT be voting DIMocRAT any more for ANY office/election.

instead, we will vote "for the man/woman" & will remain Tea Party Patriots!

yours, TN46

Mr. Capehart,
I looked at the Time's summary of the poll that they put online, but it doesn't contain the question about fear of losing their job that you refer to. I guess they didn't want to publish the full breakdown online, which is fair enough. But based on the information they have published, I don't think you can draw your conclusion.

For the question:
When asked if they were concerned about losing a job and looking for work in the next 12 months, more Tea Party folks polled (44 percent) said they are "not concerned at all."
they either asked everyone or only those employed. In either case, I don't think you can draw your conclusion.

If they asked everyone, if you'll note on the demographic page, nearly twice as many of the Tea-Partiers they polled were retired (32% vs 18% in the general population). This was counterbalanced by more people in the general population answering to being temporarily out of work or not in the job market, but those people, when asked about job-losses, would likely answer assuming that they get a job in the next 12 months (if unemployed) or referring to their family's breadwinner (if out of the labor force). Only retired people would answer "No, I'm not concerned" automatically. If you then subtract out the people who are retired, you get 19% of the general population "not at all concerned" compared to only 12% of Tea Partiers, the opposite of your conclusion.

If they only asked those (56% and 54%) who answered to being currently employed, then you have a smaller sub-group sample-size of about 500 each, when properly weighted. The margin of error is then 4.4% on each measurement, thus 8.8% when comparing two measurements, thus swamping your 7% difference. Sure, there's a chance that a 7% difference would stand up in a larger poll, but you don't have a larger poll to report on.

Either way, I don't think you can draw that conclusion. But if you have access to more detailed data than we do, can you clarify if they asked that question to everyone, or just to those who are currently employed?
Sincerely,
John Bennett

"We are "angy" (sic) because the government raises our taxes"

Well then you must be thrilled about the *fact* that federal taxes are lower since Obama became president. And they are now lower than they have been in *60* years.

Oh, you are still "angy"? Then you either ignorant, a liar, a hypocrite, or a racist. Your choice. Not other options except possibly any combination of the four. LOL! P.S. Learn some grammar and some spelling. Your poor education is showing...loudly.

Posted by: dswx | April 15, 2010 6:08 PM | Report abuse

This poll makes no sense at all. From what I have observed, these are people that are proud of their ignorance and have clearly demonstrated their lack of education and a basic understanding of how our government works. The entire movement is based on an ignorant and pissed off mob. They couldn’t even get their name right.
It is impossible for me to believe that Tea Baggers are in fact disproportionately educated compared to rest of the population. You think that the current batch of leaders would be doing the thinking for these people? Perhaps they would be better behaved? Perhaps they would act like they completed the 8th grade. Furthermore, if the income level was as high as reported along with the high employment rate, this level of anger would not exist. There would be economic prosperity – and that is not so right now.
As a former I/O Psychologist and someone well familiar with surveys, I believe that many respondents answered dishonestly on some of the questions out of "want-to-be" or even shame. Don’t forget, many of these folks have believe their own BS, considering themselves well-off when in fact they barely get by. Also, it is possible that this survey was also poorly implemented.
The bottom line is that there is NO WAY that the data in this survey has any reliability at all.

Jonathan, what I find interesting is, as it would *appear* you are perpetuating as a stereotype by saying: "So -- tell the truth -- were you really surprised to learn that "[t]he 18 percent of Americans who identify themselves as Tea Party supporters tend to be Republican, white, male, married and older than 45"? It's good to have data to back up some rather convincing anecdotal evidence."

If only 18% fit that demographic, wouldn't it stand to reason that 82% do *not?* That's a pretty big percentage, as I see it.

I am a conservative of color, and don't fit that model: I am not a male; not a Republican; I'm multiracial, so whereas I am white, I'm not white, too; and, until Monday at least, I'm *not* older than 45 . The only part of that stereotype that I fit is that I am married.

18%, to my way of thinking,is really not "overwhelming" anecdotal evidence, as compared to the 82% conveniently left out of this piece.

As to why they are disgruntled, because with every pen-stroke of new legislation, all those things you enumerate that we're so content with - gets stripped away...So yeah, we'd like to keep what we have worked hard to earn. And, so our kids don't have to pay for debt they did not incur.

Fascinating comment by CritcalThinker 4. I don't consider myself part of the Tea Party, but closely watch and sympathize with a lot of their views. I also know quite a few people affiliated with them. The interesting thing is I know African-Americans, Jewish and homosexuals that are part of the movement. Before making and perpetuating ignorance, you should go a little further in your research. I don't want to give anyone my hard earned money, even if you are male, white, married and over 45. The people that I know and the one event that I attended to observe was peaceful with people of different backgrounds. If you stopped spewing hateful words and listened, you would see that there are people on their side that raise valid points and to discount the group is as stupid as judging all races by your exerience with a few. I hope you may be able to open your mind a little.

TPers....You are going to get yourselves in trouble with the law if you start using the Leftist tactics, Alinsky was willing to face hard prison time for his beliefs. The old school protesters didn't care if they got locked up by the police for what they were doing, they expected it. The Leftists, like Code Pink, Greenpeace, ect are willing to give up their own freedom, in order to make a point.... Also we never took children into the protest zone. The only "Kids" that were involved were US. "Civil Disobedience isn't all it's Cracked up to be, a lot of protesters over the years have LOST their voting privileges fighting their causes, as well as getting seriously injured. Do we remember Kent State? How many of you are really willing to go down that road?

Why don't all the republicans refuse ANY government services if they think it's the ruin of our country. Fewer people on welfare, unemployment, medicare, using parks, school and economic incentives will reduce the demands dramatically. Most of the folks I know who are using these services are republican. Big mouths, but their pocket books tell a different story. It was a republican-ruled politics that got us into the mess we face today (and tomorrow). If republicans have all the answers, why didn't they implement them while Bush was in office. I am sick and tired of the loudmouths crying, screaming and whining when they don't get their way. They just need to go home and shut themselves up. Oh, and please, republicans, don't participate in health care reform when you or yours get sick. It will only make the problem worse... in your own sentiment!!!

Indeed, why are they angry? Great question. All conservatives seem to have an angry streak. They're stuck in the 70's-80's with images of "welfare queens" running through their minds. They tend to think the worst of their fellow Americans, particularly if that American has darker skin. They think everyone but them is standing around waiting for a handout, even though when they need help, they're the first in line. Go figure. So, Obama gave tax breaks to 95% of Americans. Yet, they're protesting because they're quite sure he intends to raise taxes sometime in the future. We have a huge deficit, but they still want to cut taxes and not tax the rich anymore, despite the fact the the richest Americans are paying less taxes than ever in our history. Some large corporations pay NO taxes in this country. And finally, not one of them is willing to forego his/her social security, medicare, unemployment, or any other entitlement program he/she currently enjoys. These people suffer from a very serious disconnect. The media loves to cover them, yet refuses to ask them these questions. May I suggest joining "the other 95%" (check out their website) to help counter the lies being spread by the Tea Party crowd,, which is NOT grass roots, but rather corporate funded and promoted. Just follow the money......

Get back on your meds and step away from the computer. Using ALL CAPS and intentionally mispelling words like DIMoCRATS, calling people "thugs", etc. doesn't exactly advance your argument.

Get back to me when you can prove how your taxes have been raised under Obama, or after you've done a little research how the Reagan Revolution began the erosion of the middle class, promoted union-busting (e.g., 29 dead miners?), and the virtual elimination of a fair tax distribution between large corporations and individual taxpayers.

The reason for their anger is staring you in the face if you care to see it: they're Republicans with a huge sense of entitlement who lost an election they felt entitled to win. Rather than accept their loss gracefully, they're throwing a big, public tantrum.

Of course they're going to pretend their anger has some deeper meaning. Who wants to admit they're just a sore loser?

Obama's not giving you a tax break you liberal idiots. The guy ran up over a trillion dollars in debt last year and he's going to do it this year and every year. You owe that money with compound interest, so it's even worse than taxes. You may not like the teaparty people and they may be hippocritical for supporting Bush, but if they force the gov't to display some level of fiscal discipline they will be doing all of us a huge favor.

Mr. Capehart,

I know that only a small precentage of Tea Partiers subscribe or take polls here. I did not take the poll as I have just joined.

My questions to you are: Why does the biased media support the bills being passed that were written by and endorsed by known communist, socialist, and marxist? Why do you endorse the President being advised by these people?

The reason the Senate and Congress had no idea what was in the Health Care Bills was because THEY did not write them! The unions and other special intrest groups that will be getting breaks are the ones that wrote them.

Taxes will go up in every state in one form or another, and the Feds will have to add the "Value Added Taxes" from 7 cents to 20 cents. Each state will lose medicaid IF they do not add the taxes and spend them according to the Feds on Health Care. Some states will have to add from 33% to 50% taxes.

Who will pay for these taxes? Everyone. The poor can hardly pay the the state sales taxes at the registers. How will they pay another 33 to 50% more? Insurance premiums will go up, they already cannot afford insurance but they will have to buy it or pay fines or go to prision.

One of the towns I live closest to has 10% of the population paying 83% of the taxes. Where is the fair representation? These discrepiences are not only in the Fed Gov't. but also our cities and states.

Our Constitution is being trampled on. Our freedoms are being stripped away. How can the media stand by and watch idely as America's backbone being broken and our Constitution being ripped apart?

The TEA Party fight is not with the Republicans, Dems, nor Independants. It is with the Communist, marxist, and Socialist that believe spreading the wealth is the American way. Thank you but no thank you. We are the most giving people in the world and we can give our money to whom we want to give it to.

There has not been any bi-partisianship in any of the Bills passed that would impact the whole United States. One Senators or Congress persons votes would not just effect their state alone. I already have one Socialist Congressman that thinks he lives in a democracy, we don't need anymore.

What I don't understand is the part of the headline claiming Tea Party members are "more well-educated" - which is NEVER mentioned in the article either. Nor is their any evidence in that assertion within any of the answers they have given to questions; in fact, most of their answers suggested to me they are NOT well educated.

Maybe that statement was about the level of education achieved, as in most of them have at least attended college? I just thought that was an unfounded claim, and completely ignores one's ability or willingness to retain facts or back-up claims made with factual data. Or maybe it's shinning a light on just how much our educational system is missing in regards to teaching civics and critical thinking skills.

I've yet to look at all the specific questions asked, but have read various critiques that include some of them. I have to agree with some of those who have said the questions were tainted to a certain degree, and in a fashion that suspiciously appears to be designed to get a desired result.

Also, I sure wish the "news" would return to the days where they included relevant data when available, such as a comparison to the general public. In this case, many of the questions I've seen have indeed been asked of random participants (broad sampling) in polls before. Including some of those results for comparison would actually be newsworthy and enlightening. You know, the kind of service news organizations are supposed to be providing, without bias.

ProgressiveMews,

based on most of the DIMocRAT/LIBERAL/"progressive" "contributors" on this forum, i have to believe that most TPP are not only better educated, but also more intelligent than the average "liberal/"progressive".

MANY, of not most, of the leftists on this forum seem to be UNeducated, vulgar of mouth, empty of head & generally BIGOTED, against anyone who doesn't agree with their UNthinking, fact-FREE prejudices!

they seem to "know NOT & know NOT, that they know NOT!"

btw, WHEN are YOU going to DEMAND that the DIMocRAT Party throw the KLANSMAN, Robert "KKK" Byrd (DIMocRAT of WV) out of the US Senate?
(TOLERATING a KLANSMAN in the DIMocRAT party is as EVIL as being a KLANSMAN.)
