7 In 10 Disagree With Juan Williams Firing

EL SEGUNDO - PJTV's Tea Party TV has unveiled the results of their weekly Tea Party tracking poll, in which 70 percent of likely voters reported that they disagree with NPR's decision to fire Juan Williams. Moreover, almost half (48%) of respondents agree that NPR funding should be reduced.

"The controversial firing of Juan Williams has drawn NPR's liberal editorial standards into the national spotlight," said Vik Rubenfeld, PJTV's Polling Director. "More than half of likely voters strongly disagree with NPR's decision to fire Juan Williams, showing that taxpayers hold strong leanings against the publically-funded radio station's choice. Moreover, 48 percent believe public funding for the organization should be cut by some margin."

The weekly PJTV/Pulse Opinion Research nationwide survey of 1,000 likely voters tracks Tea Party support as well as provides a snapshot of public opinion regarding the week's top issues. In addition to the findings above, the tracking portion of the survey revealed that the Tea Party continues to maintain the support of half of likely voters. Additionally, 48 percent of the poll's respondents reported they were more likely to vote for a candidate that the Tea Party supports.

When considering a three-week rolling average of the polling results, the survey revealed that support for the Tea Party among African Americans who are likely to vote has fallen from 35 percent during the month of August to 30 percent in the polls taken from September 19 to October 24.

"It's inevitable that the numbers would dip slightly," said Joe Hicks, host of PJTV's The Minority Report. "Obama's on the campaign trail playing the race card and he'll successfully guilt-trip some blacks into voting for Democrats."
