    Survey



    In an op-ed article in the New York Times, Robert D. Putnam, a professor of public policy at Harvard, and David E. Campbell, a political scientist at Notre Dame, say they have collected data indicating that the tea party is "less popular than much maligned groups like 'atheists' and 'Muslims.'"

    You missed part of the article.

    But Campbell says the tea party was really an afterthought in their research.

    "We didn't go into this study to look at the tea party," Campbell said in an interview with The Ticket.

    No data or methodology supplied.

    Just the old "Tea Partiers are a bunch of racist religious nuts" stereotype buried near the end of the piece.

    Nothing to see here.
