Support for the Tea Party

In a recent Quinnipiac survey, people were asked the following question: "Suppose a Tea Party candidate were running in your district. If the 2010 election for the U.S. House of Representatives were being held today, would you vote for the Republican candidate, the Democratic candidate, or the Tea Party candidate in your district?"

The sample was of 1,907 registered voters nationwide.

Only three percent of blacks answered that they would vote for the Tea Party candidate. This in no way demonstrates that blacks are loyal to Obama and the Democratic Party; rather, it proves that boisterous Medicare recipients hate black people. It's textbook social science: if you want to know a group's attitudes, observe the attitudes of another group.

Evidently Hispanics hate blacks too since they basically match whites in support for the Tea Party (at least on a survey). Seventeen percent of whites said they would vote for the Tea Party candidate, but 15 percent of Hispanics said the same. Funny, but I somehow missed the media's coverage of that statistic.

I know lots of upper middle class hispanics. They are, of course, rather obviously mostly white if not all white. Anyway, hispanics who have been here several generations or more, or who came recently and legally, are not especially lefty types. They are not in favor of illegal immigration because those are the low life folks they wanted to get away from in Mexico, if they came from Mexico. Those hispanics from the even whiter Latin American countries emphatically do not like "indios" and surely didn't want to escape to the US just to find the losers followed them here. They most certainly do not consider them co ethnics. My grandmother was white and from Mexico and absolutely detested Native Americans.
