    Tea Party supporters are wealthier and more well-educated than the general public, and are no more or less afraid of falling into a lower socioeconomic class, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

    How the Poll Was Conducted (April 15, 2010)
    The 18 percent of Americans who identify themselves as Tea Party supporters tend to be Republican, white, male, married and older than 45.

    They hold more conservative views on a range of issues than Republicans generally. They are also more likely to describe themselves as “very conservative” and President Obama as “very liberal.”

    And while most Republicans say they are “dissatisfied” with Washington, Tea Party supporters are more likely to classify themselves as “angry.”

    So Teabaggers are angry Republicans?
    Heck I have known that all along, I didn't need no stinkin poll to figure that out.
    Angry seems to cover most republicans.
    They like life that way it seems.

    This is why I don't personally post polls... 1 side will always post a poll when it supports them, and bash a poll that goes against their stances.... personally.. I think polls are nice discussion pieces at times.... but I do not find any small sample poll to be reliable enough to say it is 'truth' or inherently accurate...

    See willow, Diamond Dave understands that the poll is not exactly complimentary to right wingers.
    Perhaps posting it was not such a good idea, your fellow ex bushies are trying to decide what to post on it right now, but having trouble figuring out how to support you.

    scientifically, polls are a pretty good snapshot of a particular point in time. they are, of course, subject to change. watching the trends that show up in polls are what is significant.

    of course, it helps if the pollster is a good one.
