The Tea Party And Social Conservatives

The Tea Party And Social Conservatives October 13, 2010

Some data which demonstrates what should be obvious:

Indeed, according to a recent survey by the Public Religion Research Institute, nearly half (47 percent) of Tea Party members consider themselves part of the Christian conservative movement, with that number jumping to 57 percent when confined to the 81 percent of Tea Partiers who identify as Christian. Like Christian conservatives, Tea Partiers are overwhelmingly white (eight in 10 for the Tea Party, nearly seven in 10 for the religious right) and mostly older. On most issues, there is little daylight between the Tea Party and the religious right; 63 percent of Tea Partiers think abortion should typically be illegal, and only 18 percent support same-sex marriage. 55 percent of Tea Partiers and 43 percent of white evangelicals agree that America is a Christian nation.
