    Only 22% support the Tea Party, down 10 points from the 32% who supported the Tea Party in the days after the 2010 midterm election. Polls of THE PEOPLE consistently show the Tea Party as the most unpopular political organization in America.

    The Tea Party controls the GOP House primaries in certain districts but kills the GOP on the national level and in the Senate. For instance, if a Tea Partier had been nominated instead of Romney, the GOP would have lost by an even greater electoral landslide than with Romney.

    The Gallup polling organization has demonstrated proven accurate results for decades. They have much credibility with experts and statisticians.

    Kind of hard to get the same magnitude drop when you start with such a low base the Tea Party has.

    By the way, the lowest the Tea Party can go is zero. They not far away. Right down there with the KKK.

    A point is that the Tea Party looking bad for the GOP in 2014, and will likely give the House to the Democrats.

    Another point is that if a Tea Partier had been nominated instead of Romney in 2012, the GOP would have lost in an even bigger electoral landslide than they did with Romney.

    Look in the mirror. A sheep can drink kool-aid. Keep grazing with the other Tea Party sheep.

    If, If, If. If bullfrogs had wings, they wouldn't bump their butts on the ground.

    Without the TEA party, there would be no Republican majority in Congress. You are so dead set against the TEA party because they threaten your party's dominance.

    Doubt that, if the IRS wasn't attacking the Tea Party they would have had
    a larger roll in last election.
