Rasmussen: 33% Of Colorado Voters Align Themselves With Tea Party

Posted: Updated:

A Rasmussen survey released Monday paints a strange picture of Tea Party participation in Colorado. According to the report, 33% of likely Colorado voters identify themselves as participants in the Tea Party movement, compared with 24% nationally.

Despite Coloradans' participation in the anti-government movement, fewer residents of the state felt like they were overtaxed. According to Rasmussen, 61% of Coloradans thought the country was overtaxed, compared with 66% nationally.

64% of Republicans identified with the movement, compared with 10% of Democrats.

The survey had a 4.5% margin for error and was conducted April 14.
