Poll: Tea Party is Angry White Male Club
Most Tea Party members are angry wealthy white educated married men over the age of 45, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll. The poll found that one of the biggest gripes of the Tea Party crowd is the fear that the Obama Administration is disproportionately "helping the poor rather than the middle class or the rich." That must be the fear of "Socialism." They may call themselves the Tea Party, but they sound like plain old selfish Republicans to me.
The 18 percent of Americans who identify themselves as Tea Party supporters tend to be Republican, white, male, married and older than 45. . They are also more likely to describe themselves as “very conservative” and President Obama as “very liberal.”
