Quick! How many Americans have radical Islamists killed since 2001, counting terror attacks against civilians and war casualties in Iraq and Afghanistan? If you answered approximately 10,000 people, you are correct!
And no, that’s not a mistake. In a recent Rasmussen poll, when people who self-identified as strongly supportive of Obama were asked to identify the most significant terrorist threat to America, 26% of them said the Tea Party was the biggest threat.
Outside of this pocket of Leftism, 51% of likely U.S. voters think radical Muslims are the bigger terrorist threat. Only 13% of “ordinary” Americans view the Tea Party as the most significant terrorist threat, while another 13% designate generic non-Tea Party, non-Muslim extremism as the biggest threat.
