By comparison, 48 percent of all Americans are male, 45 percent are age 50 or older, 54 percent attended college, and four in ten go to church every week or nearly every week.

I reckon thats about right

1 in 10 polled will end up being a far right loon



80% of the tea party are republicans (the rest are pretend independents, and pretend democrats). They are what they are
