Good food for good thought

Researchers found that respondents who felt positively toward the Tea Party movement held the following primary cultural and political dispositions more often than other voters did:

• Authoritarianism: respondents believe that obedience by children is more important than creativity, and that deference to authority is an important value.
• Libertarianism: respondents believe there should not be regulations or limitations on expressions such as clothing, television shows, and musical lyrics.
• Fear of change/ontological insecurity: respondents sense that things are changing too fast or too much.
• Nativism: respondents hold negative attitudes toward immigrants and immigration.
