    Looking at voters who consider themselves part of the Tea Party movement:

    * 74 percent are Republicans or independent voters leaning Republican;
    * 16 percent are Democrats or independent voters leaning Democratic;
    * 5 percent are solidly independent;
    * 45 percent are men;
    * 55 percent are women;
    * 88 percent are white;
    * 77 percent voted for Sen. John McCain in 2008;
    * 15 percent voted for President Barack Obama.

    "Overall, this survey paints a picture of the Tea Party movement that encompasses a broad swath of the American middle class, but clearly at this stage one that is a minority group. In essence their numbers equate to about the size of the African-American electorate overall,"

    The Lefties are Afwaid of the Uppity Women!

    (As they should be - they've taken women for granted for decades.)

    You can stereotype these protesters as primarily white suburban soccer moms.

    88% white. African-American? Asian? Hispanic?

    Nope! 88% white.

    And all right after the first black president was elected.

    hhmmmm............

    How can anyone ascribe racism here? Why there's not one shred of evidence, even anecdotally, to suggest that!

    All those who believe me please take a step off the ledge.

    Nice oblique inference that the Tea Party crowd are closet racists, dickless.

    Have one shred of evidence whatsoever that blacks, Hispanics or any other ethnic group are being proactively prohibited from participating?
