Almost two-thirds of adult Facebook users in South Carolina say they aren't fans of the tea party, according to a Facebook poll conducted today with POLITICO.
Sixty-two percent of those surveyed said they are "not at all supportive" of the tea party, compared with 20 percent who were "somewhat supportive" and 18 percent who were "very supportive."
Of those surveyed, women were slightly less supportive of the tea party. Just 35 percent were either "somewhat" or "very" supportive of the movement, compared with 42 percent among men.
The results only represent the sentiment of South Carolina users on Facebook, not registered voters or likely GOP primary voters that tend to be more reliable barometers of primary elections. The Facebook poll, for instance, doesn't exclude Democrats or independents....

I say BS. South Carolina would be as close to the heart and soul of the Tea Party as any state in the union.
Only young brain washed leftist would represent South Carolina
In other news, 95% of sixth graders insist pizza is a health food.
This is bs yapping by the bs crowd.
Thirty-eight percent were “somewhat supportive” or “very supportive” of the Tea Party, ten percent ahead of Romney’s twenty-eight percent support in South Carolina, yet Romney is “dominating the race” and the voters are cool to the Tea Party? Do the media ever consider reporting facts, or is it all about spin to them?
Sorry but you can tell by the Debates we are live and well in the audience!
