About Us

MyTeaParty.org was founded in 2010 by Scott W. Graves (@ScottWGraves) and will be focus on grassroots activism and the true community leaders who selflessly advance the principles of limited government, fiscal responsibility, and individual liberty.

Towards that end, we are very excited about our first initiative; a collaboration to develop an online polling tool that will help the public and the media better understand the sentiment of the tea party movement as America approaches a critical presidential election cycle.

Tracking the Pulse of the Tea Party Movement

The 2012 Tea Party Presidential Poll was a web application designed and developed by the The Liberty Lab (www.thelibertylab.com), a California-based software development firm focused on custom online development and emerging media consulting for free-market think tanks and clients in the center-right political arena.

Developed in the wake of an historic election, the poll was inspired by the success of websites like Facebook and FlickChart that have each contributed to our understanding of crowdsourced community ranking systems. The result was a robust online polling tool that combines the fun of online gaming, the passion of tea party politics, the interactivity of social media, and the insights made possible by large data samples and sound methodology. We think you’ll agree, the results of our efforts are compelling.

The 2012 Tea Party Presidential Poll was an innovative polling tool that tallied more that 6.2 million votes and offered more than just an indicator of tea party sentiment. By presenting users with dozens (or even hundreds) of matchup combinations and implementing a methodology that decreases the “gaming” influence of well-organized campaigns, the poll provided a deeper understanding of candidate preferences within the grassroots activist community.
