The Hill (via RCP) is reporting 4 in 10 TEA Partiers are Independents or....wait for it....Democrats!
Guess the spin on this:
The group also vehemently dislikes President Barack Obama – even more so than those who called themselves Republicans in the survey. Over 80 percent of Tea Party members disapprove of the job he’s doing as president, whereas 77 percent of Republican respondents said they disapprove of Obama. The Tea Party members are also strongly opposed to the Democrats’ healthcare plan, with 82 percent saying they oppose it -- only 48 percent of respondents overall were opposed.
Let's be clear here: It's about the job and the policies. Not about his race ("denial is proof", right?).
Even so, pretty clear we are not the monolith we are portrayed.
