More than four in 10 self-described members of the Tea Party also identify as either Independents or Democrats.

Are these people self-identified?

So do you not think its similar to other such survey in how people decide to describe themselves in such things.It is as valid as others then. I always have to laugh when people think thier are many registered democrats in the nation or republicans. They think because they vote democratic or republican that they are a party member.If you polled party memebers of cousre they would identify as party memebrs. Self described is what most people are in fact.

I'm not surprised that some Tea Party members are democrats. I have a friend who voted for Obama and is a registered Democrat. She doesn't regret her vote but she said she's tired of politics on a local, state and national level altogether and she wants a real change.

Some people hold their personal beliefs at a higher level than party affiliations

Because that's what's being said. Four out of ten tea party members are not affiliated with the Republican party. [MOD CUT/moot]

We are just starting a Tea Party and have some Democrats signed up. They all regret voting for hussein obama, have children and see their future disappearing. Everyone so far is focused most on the out of control spending, the waste and hussein obama's vacations and parties as his top priority.
