Shock Poll: Teabaggers Uncomfortable With Minorities

Oppressed Whiteys Believe "Lesbians And Gays Have Too Much Political Power"

Jeff Neumann writes in Gawker:

A new University of Washington poll found that many Tea Partiers believe "lesbians and gays have too much political power," and that despite hating our new commie government, they want Medicare and Social Security to remain in place.

The poll, conducted in May, surveyed 1,695 voters over the phone. 35 percent of those questioned "strongly" or "somewhat" support the Tea Party movement. So what else did the pollsters from UW find out? The Seattle Times spoke with University of Washington political science professor Matt Barreto, who told the paper:

"The data tells us this opposition and frustration with government is going hand in hand with a frustration and opposition to racial and ethnic minorities and gays and lesbians."
