Video: Palin at Boston Tea Party – New Polls Show Tea Party Growing

Posted by iusbvision on April 15, 2010

And the Boston Herald was there and you know what, no violence, no distasteful signs, no arrests of Tea Party participants… Sorry MSNBC …

Mini Update – However some USW union thugs showed up to push people and one of them is caught on video taking a swing at a female Tea Party participant. – LINK.

Ed Morrissey at HotAir comments:

Rasmussen’s survey shows that identification with the Tea Party has rapidly increased just in the past month:

The number of people who say they’re part of the Tea Party Movement nationally has grown to 24%. That’s up from 16% a month ago, but the movement still defies easy description. …

· Ninety-four percent (94%) believe the federal government has become a special interest group that looks out primarily for its own interests. That view is held by 67% of all voters nationwide.

· Seventy-four percent (74%) believe that government and big business work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors. That’s very close to the national average. Sixty-nine percent (69%) of all voters hold that view. …

· Eighty percent (80%) in the Tea Party movement are white. Six percent (6%) are African-American.

· Fifty-five percent (55%) of those in the Tea Party movement are Republicans, 14% Democrats. Keep in mind that 75% of Republican voters say that GOP leaders are out of touch with the party’s base.

As Gallup reported last week, the demographics of the Tea Party largely reflect that of America — and more of America have joined the Tea Party. Palin’s critics keep trying to claim that she’s out of the mainstream, but the rapid growth of Tea Party support demolishes that claim. If Democrats think this is a passing phase, they will find themselves very surprised in the midterms.

Support for the repeal of the O-Care bill keeps going UP and now at 58%.

Boston Herald readers could not find anything even distasteful to examine at the Tea Party event:
