More than a quarter of Americans describe themselves as supporters of the Tea Party movement, and the demographics of this group generally mirror the demographics of the national population, according to a USA Today/Gallup Poll.
From March 26-28, Gallup asked 1,033 adults this question: ‚ÄúDo you consider yourself to be–[a supporter of the Tea Party movement, an opponent of the Tea Party movement] or neither?
Twenty-eight percent said they considered themselves to be a supporter of the Tea Party movement. A smaller percentage, 26%, said they were opponents of the Tea Party movement. Thirty-eight percent said they were neither, and 8 percent had no opinion.
