    I am a member of the tea party,but I am against balancing the budget on the backs of the elderly,now or years in the future.

    What does “support the Tea Party Movement” mean? Does it mean give money to some organizers? Or drive activists to rallies, or just attend them? If so, then no I don’t. Does it mean agree with most of their ideas including reducing the deficit, national debt and overall size and reach of the government? If so then heck yes! Am I the only one who might have responded 2 different ways depending on the perceived definition of the word “support”? Has anyone done a poll to see if people “agree with”, not “support” the individual principles of the Tea Party Movement? If the pollsters really care about what people think, then a poll question should leave little room for ambiguity. As many polls as have been done throughout the decades, this simple fact should be obvious by now. The fact that someone would conduct a poll without adhering to that one simple rule, as if it’s a foreign concept, leads me to question whether the pollster has an agenda.
