Gallup released a new poll on Thursday which shows that opposition to the Tea Party is at its highest level since the polling firm started tracking the far-right, anti-government movement in 2010. Currently, 30% of adults nationwide oppose the Tea Part, while only 22% support it. Meanwhile, 48% have no real opinion of the Tea Party. The number of people opposing the Tea Party is matches the highest mark that Gallup has tracked, which occurred in November 2010, which is when a number of Tea Party-backed Republicans won House and Senate seats.

Uh huhhh.. And what percentage of DemRats support their extreme Left wing enviro-pro-abort at any time whackos?
Anyway, those 41% never miss an election day as the author will painfully see in November.
I think it’s racist to not support the Tea Part - this author, by pointing out that some people don’t support the Tea Part, is clearly a racist - long live The Tea Part!!
I’m still trying to figure out why the Tea Party is considered a “far right” movement?
The basic appeals of the Tea Party is lower taxes and less government spending. Wow...what a bunch of radicals. The Tea Party should change the name to the Common Sense Party.
Well, I don’t know about the Tea Party being over, but if 59% of Republicans are OK with the silent but deadly coup d’état currently under way by a grossly unconstitutional $4 trillion government, my concern is more for the future and survival of America as a Constitutional Free Republic.
Well let’s see how Republicans fare if 41% of their party stays home.
The dopes who continue to elect boo hoo bonehead types and Eric Cantor, McCain, et al plus all the “far left” dems, are also the ones who scare me.
The article overlooks the fact that in tight political races you want your people out there and voting. If you piss off 22% by treating them like crap, a good portion of them aren’t even going to bother to vote.
So keep it up and we’ll embarrassingly not take the Senate, because the big tent is closed.
Any Republican not on board with Tea is a whack job. You’re either an honest citizen or a Karl Rove knock-off. That’s the choice Republican voters face.
How many obituaries this year so far?
.......Tell the truth and be thought of as a nut and a bigot? Or lie to the person on the phone and then go about their business once they hang up?
Right on! That’s one reason the Obama popularity polls are higher than we know what people really think. Many lie and hang up because they don’t want to be looked upon as racist.
Well, well........ absolutely correct! Well stated, too. I agree with you about the phone calls. I’ve received lots of calls about abortion, favoring Tea Party, supporting Gov. Scott Walker for recall (my governor) and much more.
Here in Wisconsin during the nasty unionista backed recall effort, lots of phone surveys were run by unions, faking their so called support for Governor Walker. And they were nasty folks who trashed our beautiful capital building with 24/7 occupation. So, I agree 100% with you. Who, with the NSA in their right mind answers some stranger on the phone honestly?
Havent heard a peep in the media from the Occupy Bowel Street Movement are they dead yet? Notice no one talks about them anymore and writes their obituary
The 2010 congressional elections wipeout of the Democrats would not have happened without the Tea Party and the establishment knows it. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you. Mitt Romney would be sitting in the White House today had the Tea Party and conservatives not stayed home. The imbecile GOPe better not take these congressional elections for granted because they will be in for a rude awakening if they keep drilling the knife deeper into the Tea Party’s backs.
Depends on the point of reference. If the point of reference is the idiotic popular culture run by the Looney Tune Left, then the Constitution is off the charts Far Right. But if the point of reference is from the timeless values of Life, Liberty, and Free Pursuits, then the Constitution is dead center and the Looney Tune Left is so far left its off the planet.
That would put the Tea Party dead center and the Republican Party pretty far left which is where things really are IMO.
I don’t think most Americans support the Tea Party any way because most Americans like putting higher taxes on their fellow Americans, particularly if they think they will not be impacted by the greater levies.
Nevertheless, I seriously question what % Republicans are OK with the a grossly unconstitutional $4 trillion government regardless of its silent but deadly coup détat moving America further from Constitutional Republic towards a Collectivist State.
When will everyone just drop it and remember that technically there is no “Tea Party”?
I wonder how many stupid articles like this were written in 1775 talking about those crazy rebels against the crown?
