A new survey has found a strong support for the Tea Party movement as well as a significant following among self-identified Democrats.
The poll was conducted by Pajama TV (PJTV) and Pulse Opinion Research, and revealed by Tea Party TV, which is produced by PJTV, and covers news related to the grassroots movement.
It found that 54 percent of respondents support the Tea Party movement and 48 percent would vote for its candidate. Interestingly, as much as 31 percent of those who describe themselves as Democrats said they identify with the movement’s goals.
“The Tea Party is a fascinating phenomenon that can only happen in American politics,” said Roger L. Simon, CEO of Pajamas Media.
He added that “inspired by the actions of our Founding Fathers, members of the Tea Party movement have circumvented the mainstream media and have taken their grievances directly to the people.”
PJTV has also announced the launch of its newest project called The Minority Report, which seeks to give voice to opinions of minority conservatives.
Simon said the program—which will feature panels and individual guest appearances by various minority leaders—will fill the void by covering issues that mainstream media fails to address.
