The TPM is neither fringe nor racist, and the awakening within the black community continues.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">A new poll released this week soundly contradicts critics' claims that the tea-party movement is "fringe," "white" and "racist." ...

The number of people who identify as <span style='font-size: 11pt'>"members" of the tea party has more than tripled over the last month alone, up to 21 percent of likely voters;</span>

<span style='font-size: 11pt'>Fifty-five percent of those surveyed said they support the tea parties based on the movement's positions</span> on the issues;

<span style='font-size: 26pt'>Among the likely voters who are black, 32 percent said they would vote for a candidate backed by the tea parties.</span> ...

"Questions of racism within the tea party have been raised for months now," said PJTV's Polling Director Vik Rubenfeld in a statement. <span style='font-size: 26pt'>"Our survey found that more than one in three African-Americans support the movement. Moreover, the data revealed that 32 percent are also likely to vote for a congressional candidate whom the tea party supports."</span>

Joe Hicks, PJTV host and former executive director for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, said <span style='font-size: 14pt'>the poll "shows that, for many black voters, race no longer serves as a rationale for supporting policies that undermine their economic interests."</span>

"Democrats and leftists have attempted to define the tea-party movement as a collection of angry white bigots," he said.<span style='font-size: 14pt'> "However, the PJTV poll of black voters shows the wheels on the race-card bus are beginning to fall off."</span>

PJTV's Tea Party Tracking Poll uses Pulse Opinion Research which conducts automated polls for businesses, media outlets and even Rasmussen Reports to monitor opinions toward the tea parties from sample groups of 1,000 respondents, including a special analysis of 543 likely voters who identify as African-American.

In the Aug. 8 poll, while 24 percent of respondents claimed to have friends and family who were members of tea parties, only 6 percent took the title for themselves.

But the number of self-identifying "members" grew, such that by Sept. 12, barely more than one month later, 21 percent claimed to be a member of the tea parties.

Also trending upward is outward support for the movement.

On Aug. 8, of the likely voters who identified as tea-party members, only 34 percent said they supported the movement publicly, while 53 percent admitted they only supported the movement privately.

In the last month, however, proportion of tea partiers who support the movement publicly has risen to 44 percent</div></div>

I suspect this shift is largely due to lessons learned in the last election!

Probably because they remember being promised free gas. No mortgage payments and free health care.

Of course this 32% of blacks are probably racist, right? /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

No, the voters that believed those promises are just dumb enough to vote for more of the same.

Actually guilt ridden white leftists living off of either the state's or their parents or their spouse's largesse who have no clue how the wealth they enjoy was actually accumulated are the ones most prone towards that.

I almost crack a rib every time I see a college weenie get out of a BMW paid for by the parents wearing a $200 pair of sneaks and a Che tee shirt.
