Fewer Americans now describe themselves as supporters of the Tea Party movement than did at the height of the movement in 2010, or even at the start of 2012. Today's 22% support nearly matches the record low found two years ago.

Notably, while Tea Party supporters and activists may not be fully satisfied with the GOP, they feel just as negatively as Republicans do about the Democratic Party

Republican or Tea Party makes little difference right now, they're coming for the left winger democrats in the midterms so look out.

Wow, Gallup is really loosing credibility.
They polled only 1500 people. I had that many in high school!
www.gallup.com...
"Survey Methods Results for this Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted Sept. 5-8, 2013, with a random sample of 1,510 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia."

Ironic really...

The Tea Party approval is actually higher than that of the entire Congress.

Being 17 trillion in debt I really don't have an issues with any group who want to push fiscal discipline, regardless of political ideology.

Not to mention the article is from September 2013. I am really not sure how it plays into whats going on now.

Troll or Shill , I can't Tell the Difference Anymore . The Tea Party will One Day give Birth to the Common Mans Party which will Crush the Neo Cons and Socialists who presently Infest this Great Nation .

I wouldn't have issue with that either
but the new tea party, Sarah Palins tea party, is not that...it is social conservative warriors whom abducted the name of the original tea party to gain that growing bipartisan movement and instead shove it far into the right

now the average joe see's the tea party as just some rightwing religious movement and not the original ron paul style libertarian tax and debt movement it started as under bush.

Just imagine what could happen if 22% of the members of Congress that are currently slaves to the two-headed party beast were replaced by people with no party affiliation?
While you may think that 22% of anything is a small amount---the rascals in the parties don't. They fear losing even 5% of their vote because they would lose control of us and our money.

Funny how those without any real substance to contribute always resort to name calling.

That all you got?

How about tell us what you dislike about smaller government, balanced budgets, constitutional values and such. You know the stuff you seem to be against. So you think support is less now than before for the Tea Party because they're all dying off?

So, a link and a copy/paste and no opinion to go with it AND little realization that ATS is GLOBAL in nature!!! "

"My Mod, My Mod, why have you forsaken us"

To non-Americans, Tea Party is something that little girls have with pretend friends.

Anyway, your obvious political alignment aside, most, if not all of the planet as well as a rapidly increasing number of US citizens can now clearly see that your 2 party system is a big fat train-wreck of a joke.

Both sides lie to get the vote, and both sides lie when in power.

Here is a little reminder of that truth.........



You underestimate the knowledge base of the membership here - weird indeed - BABYBULL24 nailed it.

I don't even believe the americans count the vote anymore - it's just a "2 party trainwreck" into a one world gov't ---

And a whole lot of poverty for anyone who didn't sell their soul......

Wonderful and thought provoking comments from the OP as usual!

I think the Tea Party is still quite relevant. Obama had the IRS on them and I read an article recently that Mitch McConnell
stated something about them losing big in the mid-terms.
Seems to me, they are still very influential.

We’re going to crush you like the worms that you are, peasants.hotair.com...

That's a fact.Maybe he ran back to ask his handler for another link or something. I guess thread dumps are OK now, minimum input from the OP, one link and adios amigos.

As far as the Tea Party is concerned I don't think there would be such a fuss about them from the left or the right unless they were scared. The old guard should be scared and it ain't over till the fat lady sings.

"Handler"??
Ok, here's a perspective from the UK. The overall view of the Tea Party here is that they're nuts and that they're driving the Republicans so far to the right that they'll be banning the word 'left' soon.

You really don't get what's happening here do you? That's OK hopefully the Tea Party will eventually overcome and crush the old GOP and the republicans will be no more.

For the record we don't care what the perspective is from the UK. We have our own perspective but thanks for playing.

Actually I do. My wife is American and we have family there. I had to glue my wife together the other day after our granddaughter (long story) told us that Obama is the antichrist, based on what her Tea Party father had told her via their church. All the anti-abortion lunacy is equally worrying.
