The results: They are white (91.4 percent); Christian (85 percent with a disproportionate percentage Bible literalists); middle class; male, and well-educated. Despite a better employment rate, they hold a negative economic outlook and a more negative view toward health care reform than the average Republican. Views on race distinguish the Tea Partyers. Almost 63 percent of them thought the country has "gone too far in pushing equal rights." Only 39 percent of other whites agreed with this sentiment. Disapproval of Obama among Tea Party whites was 69 percent, while it was only 19 percent among non-Tea Party whites. About 39 percent of the Tea Partyers thought the president, who is Christian, is a Muslim.
