This NPR story about Tea Party support among conservatives reports on a recent poll and uses the poll numbers to help frame reporting on the budget debate.
There are moments where the numbers are a bit overwhelming. The poll breaks down into multiple sub-sections and that leads to complicated explanations. The reporter could have broken these sections down into separate paragraphs.
The reporter does not appear to have crunched the numbers; if so, it's not obvious. The source of the poll is Washington University, and that's obvious. The methodology of the poll is explained but not in it's entirety.
