Tea Party Movement Racist: Fox News Poll

Strange results from a Fox News poll, as their core audience is undeniably to the right. However, a Fox News poll indicates that even those viewers / readers feel that the Tea Party movement is racist.

Here's how the poll was posed:
How to define the Tea Party movement was nearly as big an issue last week at the National Tea Party Convention as the political issues discussed, from government fiscal responsibility to greater accountability of public officials. Some participants drew cheers for raising more controversial topics, such as President Obama's nationality, but others argued that those points were, at best, politically unproductive. Meghan McCain went further on Monday and called segments of the movement "racist."
As of the the time of this writing, there are 210,835 votes. 80 perecent of them selected the option that the Tea Party movement is "A fruitless mix of racism, conspiracy theories."

Interestingly, for those who believe the policies of Barack Obama are socialist, only 1 percent of respondents agreed with that statement as a reason that the Tea Party movement has begun. Of course, those who truly know what socialism means know that any idea that the U.S. is moving toward it is a completely untrue statement, anyway.

This biased article conveniently has no sources to back up its claims. If you want to bash Fox News, or conservative American groups, that's fine; just have evidence. Don't give in to hearsay, actually provide a link or some other type of evidence.

Just so that our colourful friend above doesn't jump down my throat, I AM a Liberal, Canadian. You may wanna google about the poll you've featured--word has it on Digg that it got punked by some group, perhaps not dissimilar to /b/ and the people responsible used the backend to the poll through PollDaddy's main site. I hate conceding to the conservative mental cases but this one seems to have indeed been played.

I can't find this poll anywhere...sorry man, I think you've been duped. I've been through about 30 polls over the last 2 months and this one that you posted is looking pretty bunk.

This biased article does not practice sources to support its claims. If you want to bash Fox News or conservative American groups, it is fine, just need a proof. Do not give in to rumors, in fact provide a link or another form of documentation.

Well this is the FOX News web site? Of course, it's not a scientific poll and they clearly mention that on their site.
