Poll: Tea Party Not Economic ‘terrorists’

ASBURY PARK, N.J., Aug. 8 (UPI) — Most likely U.S. voters say they disagree with recent remarks by prominent Democrats characterizing the Tea Party as economic terrorists, a poll indicates.

Fifty-five percent say members of the Tea Party are not economic terrorists, a Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found.

Just 29 percent believe Tea Party members have been terrorists during the budget debates while 16 are undecided, a Rasmussen release said Monday.

While 53 percent of Democrats in the poll said they view Tea Party members as terrorists, 74 percent of Republicans disagreed.

However, 43 percent of all voters said they think the Tea Party has made things worse for the country in the budget debates in Congress.

The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted on Aug. 5-6, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports, which put the margin of sampling error at 3 percentage points.
