UPDATES marked *** and notes on them will follow the table.

The massive number of Tea Party protests held on Tax Day are over. While the counts are unofficial, there are some numbers available.

The city counts for the nationwide Tea Party protests yesterday can be found at Freedom Press. I have used their numbers as of 5:30 yesterday.

Please feel free to check my addition, and totals. I tried to see what Pajamas TV had but their site is blank at this moment. It appears as if this list is short about 250 protests.

  1. The ones I know of in MO are not reported on that list. I know of 5 in within a 100 mile area in Arizona that are not listed…with attendance of 6,000+ total. Your numbers are low. There is one photograph, not even the entire crowd in Jefferson MO, that shows more than the 500 listed on that report.
    I estimated 1,500,000 but ramussen reports 25% of the entire adult population personally knows a person who attended..That could mean 2,500,000 easily.
    There is a photo of the crowd that turned out for Obama Earth Day in Iowa City estimated to be 10,000 and it is miniscule compared to the size of the crowd pictures that were posted for Des Moines Tea Party. There were many many parties with crowds of 1,000 plus..Yakima WA 1,000, Yuma AZ 1500 and the list goes on and on and on… Prescott Valley AZ 3,500.

  2. I have to agree with many of the other responses about the great underrepresentation of Tea Party turnout. In Indiana, the state organizers had 16 confirmed parties. That mean 16 parties actually worked with and communicated to just one organizer. I’m sure there were other parties that were independent of this one organizer. I think the Indiana turnout was probably over 25,000, not the 10,000 you have listed.

  3. After doing the calculations myself, by adding up the police attendance statements at the more than 750 tea parties nationwide the total comes out to 2, 700, 000 attendees minimum nationwide.
