Lib Professors Claim Tea Party (Fiscal Conservatives) Less Popular Than Muslims, Atheists
They really, REALLY want you to shut up and go away.
The democrat-media complex continued its attack on tea party today.
A study by Harvard professors found that the tea party is less popular than “atheists” and “Muslims.”
The Ticket reported:
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.'”
But Campbell says the tea party was really an afterthought in their research.
“We didn’t go into this study to look at the tea party,” Campbell said in an interview with The Ticket.
The professors were following up on research they conducted in 2006 and 2007 for their book “American Grace: How Religion Divides and Unites Us” and decided to add the tea party and atheists to their list of survey queries. By going back to many of the same respondents, the professors gleaned several interesting facts about the tea party.
One of their more surprising findings, Campbell concedes, (and one drawing national attention) is that the tea party drew a lower approval rating than Muslims and atheists. That put the tea party below 23 other entries–including Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, Republicans and Democrats–that the professors included on their survey of “a representative sample of 3,000 Americans.”
Now would you terrorists please, shut up, go home and let the democrats spend more of your money on their failed economic policies.
