More Tea Party Polling

There’s another poll out examining the views of self-identified Tea Partiers. Among the issues that a majority of Tea Partiers agree with (while the country as a whole disagrees):

  • Immigration is changing the culture in the US for the worse.
  • Welcoming immigrants to US society, even immigrants who entered illegally does not make America better off in the long run.
  • Disapproval of Barack Obama‚Äôs policy of engaging with Muslim countries.
  • We should single out Muslims or Middle Easterners for airport security stops.
  • Compared to the size of their group, lesbians and gays have too much political power.

While I think it’s unfair to call the Tea Party a racist movement or to assume its members are racist, it’s not hard to see where the perception comes from.
