    Tea Party Support Hits New Low-

    Americans’ support of the Tea Party is at its lowest point since the movement’s inception, according to a new poll.

    Support for the Tea Party is at 17 percent, Gallup found, down 15 points from its high.

    Another 24 percent now say they are Tea Party opponents, Gallup said Monday, while 54 percent identify as neither supporters nor opponents of the group.
    The Tea Party first appeared in national politics in 2009 as a response to President Obama’s first term in the Oval Office.

    Gallup said that the group initially received 28 percent support before reaching a high of 32 percent during the November 2010 midterm elections. Tea Party activists then helped create the momentum for the GOP’s takeover of the House during that election cycle.

    Opposition against the group peaked at 31 percent before last year’s congressional midterms, Gallup added.

    The polling agency said that support for the Tea Party had never dropped below 25 percent until the new survey.

    Gallup conducted its latest poll of 1,015 adults aged 18 and older nationwide via telephone interviews from Oct. 7-11. It has a 4 percent margin of error.

    Really makes sense.

    TP was created for two reasons-

    1. So that rightwingers who were Dubya supporters and said NOTHING about his deficits and "off-the-books" wars.....could PRETEND they were "independents" and "something new" and not look like hypocrites when they bemoaned deficits under Obama.


    2. A hoax (in conjunction) with #1 to try to fool people into thinking that "independents" hated Obama from Day One, in January 2009.



    So naturally with Obama leaving office in 1 year and 3 months....even Tea Partiers are abandoning the "movement" and simply reverting back to their original state...

    i.e. straight ticket Republican voters.

    No one's changing what they believe though. This would just be changing their opinion on which political party represents the things they believe.

    I'd guess (and correct me if I'm wrong) most Tea Party supporters of 2012 would now be the Trump supporters of 2015.

    It was ALWAYS a lie when TPers claimed they "represented a majority of Americans"....they didn't even hardly represent a majority of REPUBLICANS.

    Now, the movement is collapsing....and "oddly" as the Obama Presidency comes to an end.

    If you listen to posters on this forum the Tea Potty is not a minority faction in the GOP. Some believe that the TP is still a viable part of the GOP.

    Doesn't it look more like the GOP is more like a parliamentary coalition than a real United States Political party.

    Probably.....but if Rubio or Jeb...the "amnesty-loving RINOs" become the 2016 Nominee?.....99% of Tea Partiers will vote for them in November 2016.

    Once Obama is out of office....TP will likely collapse. If a Repub becomes President in 2016....it DEFINITELY will collapse.

    TPers will, as all "fiscal conservatives" do.....throw out their "fear" of deficits as long as a Repub is President. True since 1981.

    Of course, everyone with a brain knew that when the Marxist Kenyan guy was gone there'd be no further point to the movement. ;-)

    If that were remotely true mr bush, the establishment candidate, would be leading in the polls instead of dr Carson and mr trump. The insurrection seems to be continuing.
