Coming from a Brit, Americans confuse me. Like, I'll never understand how low income householes ever vote republican, the party that will make them even poorer.

people vote conservative cause they dont want hand outs they want to earn for themselves and be their own people, and realize that just cause a promise is made doesn't mean it will happen. OIbamacare is the best example of this. democrats practice to much bait and switch, and can't keep the promises they make as they are unrealstic. Also money isnt everything, some people are happy with what they have and dont crave more. and on top of it all we are a massive country with 300+million people, from many backgrounds and ethnicities, we cant use a one size fits all solution for things. But if you really look closely at it, what you'll see is that republicans and democrats aren't much different from each other. they both want more tax and regulation, the party of the future is the tea party.

Demography suggests that the tea party is the party of the past almost by definition.

Are you sure?  All the demography studies i've seen on the tea party have shown that they're basically very evenly represntative of the population demographics as a whole.

Sure they aren't portayed that way... but actual demographics...

pretty much dead on mainstream.


Actually far more representative proportionally then either Republicans or Democrats.
