TEA PARTY UPDATE: Poll stunner: Sen. Bennett on brink of defeat.
The poll found that more than two-thirds (68 percent) of the delegates identify themselves as supporters of the tea-party movement. That doesn’t necessarily mean they carry signs at rallies, Coker said, but they support the philosophy.
“What is uniting everyone right now is fiscal conservatism, and I’m not even sure I like the term conservative. It’s just responsibility. Just quit spending all the money,” said David Kirkham, a co-founder of Utah’s tea party movement. “There are a lot of people who are angry. Are we responsible? I’m just glad we can be part of it.”
Yes, that’s the big tent.
