"Demographically, the tea party movement seems to hearken back to the 'angry white men' who were credited with the GOP's upset victory in the 1994 midterm elections," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Ideologically, it effectively boils down to the century-old contest between the conservative and moderate wings of the party."

:clap2: Good

Further proof the the GOP does not equal the tea partiers or vise versa.

Its kinda like the far left liberals vs normal democrats....except the teapartiers are only far right on the economy, the rest of the issues they don't truly have a position on (unless your a canidate who thinks your a tea party canidate then you might have personal conservative social issues but that doesn't make them tea party issues.....Mrs Bachmann)

Another credible CNN poll? Wow! That's two in a row today. The other one says Americans are tickled pink with the way Obama's handling the economy.
He's a shoe-in in 2012

In a Republic, actually
There is also disagreement on social issues: Tea party Republicans are roughly twice as likely to say that abortion should be illegal in all circumstances and roughly half as likely to support gay marriage. Tea party Republicans are also roughly twice as likely to believe that the Social Security system should be replaced, and although most Republicans on either side disagree with the assertion that Social Security is a lie and a failure, tea party GOPers are much more likely to embrace that view.

So, for the most part, by their own admission, there’s nothing ‘new’ or ‘diverse’ about the make-up of the TPM. It is in essence the Old Bush Base: social conservatives and religious fundamentalists.

As for the ‘moderates’ verses the ‘conservatives’ issue, this isn’t an accurate way to look at it, as the debate gets clouded with this ‘RINO’ nonsense.

At issue is the conflict between the Old Guard – traditional conservatives of the Goldwater faction, advocates of privacy rights with regard to abortion, advocates of individual liberty, and hostile to the Christian fundamentalists. And the progressive faction in the Rockefeller tradition – pragmatists and advocates of responsible governance.

These are the men and women who need to stand up, take back the Republican Party, and kick the TPM to the curb, as their ideas are best suited to guide the Nation at this time, as opposed to the democrats and most certainly the TPM.

It's true. It's blatant insecurity, in always needing to tell themselves "look, we're regular Americans and not partisan and regular non partisan Americans are with us, obviously, cuz we have a new name!"

N'aw. It's conservatives.

Join the Conservative party. The tea party is a guise for JUST that, afterall.

The reason I told you to git gud was because you are wrong. The tea party is about economics and not social or international issues, the conservative (republican) party is about economic, international, and social issues.

I don't expect you to understand, i've used your sources of information and they are clueless.

And yet you still lost the Weiner Seat to a Republican

After that scandal, were you expecting otherwise?

I know you're an idiot, but surely even you must know that Weiner did not run for reelection, making the "Scandal" totally irrelevant.

You know Weiner wasn't up for reelection, right?

Yes, and so were the Democrats, which is why they weren't paying much attention to the race until a poll suddenly came out a few weeks ago showing it wasn't as safe as they thought. Democrats outnumber Republicans three to one in this district and the Dems have held the seat for 90 years. The Weiner scandal wasn't what caused this seat to flip, but you already know that.

Yes they are trying to throw other things out to get you to argue the other stuff and distract you away from this fact you just pointed out.

its typical, we see this every day here.
