Many of us received a survey last year asking about your activity in the Liberty Movement, and now we have the results.
The first large-scale political-science survey of Tea Party activists shows the movement isn’t going anywhere—and the GOP had better brace itself.
For a movement that’s helped to reshape the Republican Party—and by extension, reshape American politics—we know shockingly little about the people who make up the Tea Party. While some in the GOP once hoped to co-opt the movement, it’s increasingly unclear which group—the Tea Party or establishment Republicans—is running the show. Politicians have largely relied on conjecture and assumption to determine the positions and priorities of Tea Party activists.
