Tea Partiers: Old, White, Rich, Educated Men

April 15th, 2010

That’s not the whole tea party, of course. But tea partiers skew strongly on each of these dimensions, according to a new NYT/CBS poll.

I just think it’s worth pointing out that that group has benefited more than any other from the government policies that were put in place before their births and while they were children.

But I do have to give them some credit. 52% of tea partiers believe their taxes this year are fair, compared to 62% of all adults.

I find it especially interesting that tea partiers are just as conflicted about taxes and debt as other Americans. They’d have just as much trouble writing a real budget as our legislators do.
