    First paragraph.

    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.'"

    Rest at link.

    More from article -

    By examining which respondents became supporters of the tea party, Campbell and Putnam's survey "casts doubt on the tea party's 'origin story,' " they write in the Times--though, in fairness, it's perhaps difficult to generalize on the movement's origins from a poll sample of 3,000 respondents.

    Early tea partiers were described as "nonpartisan political neophytes," Campbell and Putnam write, but their findings showed that tea partiers were "highly partisan Republicans" who were more likely than others to have contacted government officials.

    "They are overwhelmingly white, but even compared to other white Republicans, they had a low regard for immigrants and blacks long before Barack Obama was president, and they still do," they went on.

    In addition to being socially conservative, the study found a close tie between religion and the tea party, whose supporters seek out "deeply religious" elected officials.

    Yawn. More liberal propaganda. Anything to deflect from four million jobs lost under Obama.

    Yeah, they are running scared.

    Obama cannot do what is right, because it would require him to cast off all of his belief system and turn to something that actually works, like reduced taxes, regulations and repeal of health care.

    He has neither the talent within himself or with any of his staff to figure it out and if he did, he will not do it.

    The business and job market will remain stagnant and decline, until he is voted out of office.

    Again, trying the same thing over and over under the same conditions and expecting a different result is insanity.

    Liberalism is a mental illness.
