Skip to comments.Tea Party Movement Looks Stalled; Half Like it Less as they Hear More

Wither the Tea Party?
A major force in the 2010 midterm elections, the movement has stalled in public popularity, its support well below a majority and decidedly lukewarm. And Americans by a broad 23-point margin say the more they hear about the Tea Party movement, the less they like it, rather than liking it more.
That negative buzz has worsened from a 9-point gap in an ABC News/Washington Post poll as the movement was gathering speed two years ago. And its avenues for resurgence may be limited: Interest in learning more about Tea Party is down 7 points from spring 2010....
These views have grown more negative particularly among young adults, seniors, women, moderates and people in the $50,000 to $100,000 income range, all with 10- to 17-point increases in like it less responses as they hear more about the Tea Party movement....

Anyone who trusts anything from ABC should be put away for their own safety.
I seem to recall that the Tea Party was pretty strong just months ago, November 2011.
The Tea Party needs to get brewing again. They brought about major change in 2010, and can do it again in November.
The way that the mainstream media describes the Tea Party is about as accurate as the way that Al Jazeera describes Israel. If only they reported Obama half as honest, Dear Leader’s approval would be about 25%.
Yeah, keep on believing this crap. Just because ABC wills it does not make it so. They will be a major force this summer..
Horse Crap Poll... Whatever you want to call Americans who are fed up with 0bama and his Assministration, we will be out to vote in November... greater than 2010!
The contention of the article has some merit. Unfortunately you’re a newbie and you are going to be fried soon. Good luck in your next life.
They speak the uncomfortable truth.
Jeremiah wasn’t too popular either.
I can understand why “half”, the people who depend upon the nanny state handouts and vote for Barry, “like it less”. I’ll bet these nanny staters love the hell out of the occupy fleabaggers. BTW, has anyone ever seen any “polls” or “surveys” about how the “young adults, seniors, women, moderates and people in the $50,000 to $100,000 income range” feel about the freeloading, fleabaggers?
IF this is true, and I doubt it, they have surveyed people who get their info from ABC.
So Americans like the Tea Party less, the more they hear about it? So is OWS and its criminal nature more to their liking?
After all.. they`re the same people who put 0bama in office in 2008.
LOL! I love it.
i agree...i am a participant and contributor but it seems all the energies are in the Wisconsin recall...after 2010 they asked “what’s next?”- i said lets vet the media; they didn’t and the media went full force branding us all as racists...i think they also figured the establishment GOP would work with the Tea Party and they (Boehner/McConnell) have been garbage....
I don’t know. The M.O. here on FR is to post these MLM (Mainline Media) stories that usually carry a heavy load of fiction. Why repeat lies? Half the readers are discouraged when they read this stuff on this site not realizing it should prima facia be discounted.
Yup...we have just gone underground. We are living our lives, working and remaining vigilant to what is going on. The negative press started with Susan Roesgen and it has not let up..but unlike Ms. Roesgen we are still here.
Susan vs. the Tea Party-April 2009
I will have to admit that I was told thew Tea Party guys were going to take Washington by storm and cut spending, get rid of husseincare, put the binders on the status quo politicians. So far none of that seems to have come true.
hussein care was not defunded. Boehner is still crying and caving. hussein got his credit limit raised just like he wanted, etc.
I have stopped listening to their hype and promises.
