    The same old core conservative group that has been pissed off at the state of the country since at least the 60s with a new name.

    Not really. Lean more republican and have a greater influence with republicans. On the, it's a nutter group that really does more harm than good.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Possibly, but studies have shown that the tea party tends to be socially and fiscally conservative, not just fiscally. However, I believe during its early days it was only about fiscal issues, so you would be right too.

    There is one black guy in this crowd. See if you can find him.



    Here is another. Can you find the one Asian?

    Tea Party rally pics could be used like "Where's Waldo" books, only just make it into "Where's the Racial Minority?"

    I will grant that the premise of smaller government, lower taxes, and more accountable reps, would appeal to social conservatives, but given its limited platform, I think all these polls are an innacurate portrayal of the tea party. I think the underlying factors I outlined, appeal to more people than "social conservatives". I find it to be a more libertarian movement that not only appeals to the minority libertarians, but also a majority of many folks.
