Pajamas TV Final Estimate: April 15 Tea Party Attendance Exceeded One Million

/PRNewswire / -- With over 77 percent of 889 events reporting, Pajamas TV has counted over 935,000 attendees for the nationwide tax day tea party protests. PJTV is estimating the total turnout could range from 1,014,000 to 1,071,000.

"The size of the tea party protests indicates that a significant number of Americans are not happy with the economic direction of the country and took the time to make their voices heard," said Roger L. Simon, CEO of Pajamas Media and Pajamas TV.

Based on the Pajamas TV reports, Texas was the state with the largest tea party turnout followed in order by California, Florida, Ohio, Tennessee, and New York.
