FiveThirtyEight: A Teacup Half-Full

by canderson

Nate Silver at FiveThirtyEight posted about our Tea Party analysis with a great write up and an interesting comparison:

There are two ways that one can read the Winston Group poll on the political orientation of those who consider themselves a part of the tea-party movement. One way — the headline that The Hill very reasonably chose — is that about 40 percent of tea-partiers are independents or Democrats. The other — obviously every bit as mathematically valid — is that 60 percent are Republicans. Either way, the results are more interesting thansurprising, as they are broadly in line with previous polling on the subject — as well as what I think we can reasonably infer about the movement.
