Salon's Kerry Eleveld: Study Claims That Tea Partiers and Evangelicals Are Not One and the Same in the Republican Coalition

Salon: Study Shows that GOP Has Three Large Factions Within

"The GOP is now roughly split into three factions: one-third Evangelical, one-quarter Tea Party and one-quarter moderates. These focus groups, which were purposely assembled homogeneously to encourage participation, were chosen because they comprise the base of the Republican Party.
True, the Tea Party has its own goals and it’s wreaking havoc on the Republican Party and the nation. But what’s striking about the insights gleaned from the groups is that both moderate and Tea Party Republicans view the Evangelical agenda as a total distraction."
