Tea Party Hits Record Level Of Unpopularity In Public Opinion Poll
"The Tea Party is more unpopular than ever before, according to a Rasmussen poll released Monday, with just three in 10 voters holding favorable views of the movement. Half of respondents said they view the party unfavorably.
Those numbers represent a considerable dive in support since the Tea Party's heyday in 2009, when a majority of voters rated it favorably.
Although most members of the House's Tea Party Caucus were reelected in November, the group had some high-profile losses, including the defeats of former Reps. Joe Walsh and Allen West. Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), the chairwoman of the House Tea Party Caucus, barely retained her seat.
The movement is now widely seen by the public as declining, according to the Rasmussen poll -- 56 percent of voters said the Tea Party became less influential over the past year, and just 8 percent said they identified as part of the Tea Party movement."
The Tea Party was supported by Senior citizens but after the Ryan budget was exposed cutting SS and Medicare for seniors they lost that support.
They lost more support when Romney attacked the 47% and when Rush attacked women that wanted contraception to be covered and Aiken made the idiotic rape comments.
Add in all the racist birther talk, attacks on hispanics, exposure of the Koch oil agenda and the massive amounts of money the tea part leaders stole in contributions and is it any wonder the tea party movement failed and is destined to go down in history as the worst political movement ever ?
