When you think of Tea Party members you think of...

Quick poll to see what you guys think of people who identify themselves as members or supporters of the Tea Party.

I forgot to make this poll public, but consider it public because when I get a chance I'll likely change the setting in the db to do so.

OK poll is now officially public.

I'm with Dave on this; my experience tells me some may be above average in intellect, but most are average or below in intellect--despite the "findings" of this one report by one Yale professor.
Your analysis of this poll result says a lot about at least one public school teacher in South Dakota. And it's not flattering.

I don't believe there are truly stupid people. There are low function people, but even they know something I don't know.

That guy who can barely speak in proper English, but can build and fine tune an engine knows a lot that I don't know.

The Tea Party's problem is just where they get their information. It's not that they are stupid, they just, for whatever freaking reason, believe that talk radio personalities (who will say whatever to keep people listening)know something about how to govern. Rush, Beck, Savage, they know how to attract and keep listeners so they continue to earn advertising dollars, but know squat about actually governing.

David Frum, a former Bush Speech writer, explains it better than I can (note, this was written after the first debt ceiling stupidity two years ago):

Quote:
Extremism and conflict make for bad politics but great TV. Over the past two decades, conservatism has evolved from a political philosophy into a market segment. An industry has grown up to serve that segment—and its stars have become the true thought leaders of the conservative world. The business model of the conservative media is built on two elements: provoking the audience into a fever of indignation (to keep them watching) and fomenting mistrust of all other information sources (so that they never change the channel). As a commercial proposition, this model has worked brilliantly in the Obama era. As journalism, not so much. As a tool of political mobilization, it backfires, by inciting followers to the point at which they force leaders into confrontations where everybody loses, like the summertime showdown over the debt ceiling.

But the thought leaders on talk radio and Fox do more than shape opinion. Backed by their own wing of the book-publishing industry and supported by think tanks that increasingly function as public-relations agencies, conservatives have built a whole alternative knowledge system, with its own facts, its own history, its own laws of economics. Outside this alternative reality, the United States is a country dominated by a strong Christian religiosity. Within it, Christians are a persecuted minority. Outside the system, President Obama—whatever his policy *errors—is a figure of imposing intellect and dignity. Within the system, he’s a pitiful nothing, unable to speak without a teleprompter, an affirmative-action phony doomed to inevitable defeat. Outside the system, social scientists worry that the U.S. is hardening into one of the most rigid class societies in the Western world, in which the children of the poor have less chance of escape than in France, Germany, or even England. Inside the system, the U.S. remains (to borrow the words of Senator Marco Rubio) “the only place in the world where it doesn’t matter who your parents were or where you came from.”
Link goes to page three of the article, I suggest reading the whole thing.

The parts you don't seem to get are the part where you don't even consider the fact that you have no control group and, putting that major flaw aside, the part where an even greater percentage choose "Average" or above.

It's a poll in DC; a tea party circle jerk, more than anything else. I'm shocked the above average and 'genious' votes weren't much higher.

While your take is fine, mine is also true. And I prefer mine.

It illustrates the humility and modesty of us tea partiers. Despite being better people with better ideas, we find it distasteful to toot our own horns. Now that you've force me to bluntly lay it out for you like this, I have to go take a shower and try to get humble again.

You and Dave's personal experiences seem to be an outlier because it is far more than just one report by a Yale prof. How about that bastion of conservatism.. the NY Times?
