A new University of Washington poll (PDF) finds that a majority of "true" Tea Party supporters believe gays are too powerful. Fifty-two percent of respondents said that "compared to the size of their group, lesbians and gays have too much political power."
The poll also finds only 18% of teabaggers believe in marriage equality, 88% support Arizona's controversial immigration law and almost half believe "if blacks would only try harder, they would be just as well off as whites."
"According to UW professor Matt Barreto, who directed the poll, the Tea Party's frustration with Washington 'is going hand in hand with a frustration and opposition to racial and ethnic minorities and gays and lesbians.'"
"Too much political power"? It's still perfectly legal in almost 30 states to fire someone or not hire them simply because they're gay, lesbian or transgender.
