What you need to know about the tea party-friendly Tea Party movement
The tea party movement is making the rounds again.
And it has taken root among young people, according to a new survey.
The survey of more than 600 young people from across the country was released Tuesday by the liberal Center for American Progress.
The report shows that more than half of those surveyed said they supported Tea Party candidates, but that a smaller percentage were actively involved in the movement.
“Young people have been calling out their senators for doing nothing and just supporting Tea Party senators,” said David French, director of the Center for Popular Democracy’s Center for Youth and Civic Engagement.
“There is a very active tea party presence, with the tea partiers on the Senate floor.”
The poll found that a large percentage of tea party supporters support legislation that would defund Planned Parenthood and end President Obama’s Affordable Care Act.
Nearly half of the respondents said they voted for a Republican to represent them in the House.
They also said they would be more likely to vote for the party if a Tea Party member was their senator.
“I think the Republicans have been really vulnerable in the past few elections,” said Katie Martin, 18, of San Francisco.
“We’ve had enough to worry about, so we need to be careful.
But we’re not going to take it for granted.
We’re not even going to be able to afford the cost of a car.”
Tea Party supporters are more likely than other groups to be older, male and white, according the poll.
“The Tea Party has an incredibly diverse and diverse coalition,” French said.
“People of color are very active in the Tea Party.
And they’re the ones who have the most influence.”
Tea Partiers are also much more likely (59%) than other age groups to have a college degree or less education.
“This is a group that has historically been a minority,” Martin said.
The Center for Democracy and Technology released its latest report last year showing that the American people are increasingly open to changes in the political landscape, especially if they are part of a larger movement.
A study released earlier this year showed that, in the first five months of 2017, tea party voters were more likely in their support for President Donald Trump than they were for Republican Sen. Marco Rubio.
The Tea Party, however, has a history of being divisive.
Tea Party protesters, often referred to as “the tea party,” rallied against the Affordable Care Law during the 2010 midterm elections, and many have been arrested in recent years for participating in such demonstrations.
The poll of more 700 respondents was conducted by the Center on Education and the Workforce, a research group at the liberal-leaning Brookings Institution.
The findings are based on telephone interviews conducted between Dec. 15 and 18.
The institute’s director of research and public affairs, Mark R. Hanson, said the findings were based on a small sample of 1,500 people and were not intended to be definitive.
“As the survey has shown, the Tea Partier movement has attracted a broad cross section of young Americans and other marginalized groups, including some who have never joined a Tea Parties.
Our findings also show that this movement is more inclusive than the traditional Tea Party and that there are strong Tea Party roots among other voters, including minorities,” Hanson said.
