Majority Of Tea Party Members Say Their Taxes Are Fair (POLL)

Posted: Updated:

Thursday may be the equivalent of the Super Bowl for Tea Party groups who have made taxes the centerpiece of their movement. But on the eve of Tax Day, a new poll found that a majority of Americans -- and a majority of Tea Party members -- say they think their tax rate is fair.

According to a new New York Times/CBS News poll 52 percent of self-identified tea party members reported that the amount of taxes they would pay is "fair." Sixty-two percent of all those who were polled said their taxes were fair.

Fifty-five percent of Tea Partiers who described themselves as "active members," however, called their taxes unfair.

The poll of 1,500 adults was conducted from April 5-12 and has a 3 percentage point margin of error.

Watch New York Times polling director Janet Elder explain the poll results:
