A Rasmussen poll released Thursday indicates that 26% of President Obama’s supporters see the Tea Party as the nation’s “top terror threat.”
Perhaps more shockingly, a staggering 20% of government workers apparently hold a similar view, ranking the Tea Party as a greater national security risk than radical Muslims.
“Among those who Strongly Approve of the president, more fear the Tea Party than radical Muslims,” the report says.
The exact wording of the question was: “Which is a bigger terrorist threat to the United States today – radical Muslims, the Tea Party, local militia groups, the Occupy Wall Street movement, or other religious or political extremists?”
Among all likely voters, Rasmussen reports that 51% said radical Islam is the biggest national security threat, compared to just 13% who cited the Tea Party.
Among those who disapprove of President Obama’s performance, 75% said they consider radical Muslims to be the bigger threat, compared to just 1% who said the Tea Party.
And while 20% of government workers apparently view the Tea Party as a national security risk, only 13% of private sector workers responded the same.

Well, about 40% of Americans think Obama is Muslim. There's plenty of 'dumb-ass' to go around. Both R's and D's.
That is true, more than 1/4 of Obama voters think like Rex.
quote:it would be much much more difficult to do, considering that the vast majority of government workers/officials are democrats even when a republican is in the WH.
I'm reading this as fear that any future conservative administration will turn around and use Obama's tactics of IRS harrassment and targeted economic warfare against the left.
Has the tea party been responsible for any acts of terrorism at all lately?
