In order to understand the importance of the silent majority the people were asked anonymously in the form of surveys and conducting polls to find their views on the same. So after his speech Gallup conducted a poll and it was that the overwhelming percentage of Americans supported the war. Nixon winning the war further bolstered the importance of the silent majority. Only after this the political parties understood that the majority of the people in the current times do not express their views openly or discuss their problems freely. The politicians until that time assumed that the people were all fundamentally opposed to the war. As cleverly pointed out by Nixon it was found that the majority of the people are not swayed by any political drama or actions. They had their own beliefs and made their own decisions based on the events occurring. This silent majority of people also cause the politicians to wonder what the people are really thinking in their constituencies. Even the opinion polls are sometimes wrong with the error margins being high. The politicians always try to find out what the silent majority of the people are wondering. They want to satisfy this silent majority in order to sustain in the political world. There is an inherent need to understand the people and address the concerns of the silent majority. Although the war ended and the Nixon timeserving as president ended this euphemism continues to remain even today. The term finds its relevance even today. Even the democrats used this term of serving the forgotten middle class. In the current political scenario the tea party supporters are very vocal. They disagree with a lot of policies and actions enacted by the government. The tea party is largely funded and supported by the opposition party. The current political analyst says that this situation was similar to the situation during Vietnamese war. It is believed that the silent majority of the people agree with some of the policies on either side of the political agendas. They do not like the concept of partisan policies. They view the partisan views as very radical. They make decisions on individual events based on the factors surrounding it and hence are able to adopt a more moral view.
