Tonight on Special Report Charles Krauthammer said "on the five year anniversary of the Tea Party it is as strong as ever and growing stronger."

What I'm reading in the numbers is that the Tea Party still hasn't recovered to its pre-shutdown levels.  It took a big hit in the numbers that Rap posted in the aftermath of the shutdown.

Ain't that the truth. Obama will go down in history as the worst president ever to occupy the office. 2016 can't come soon enough.

Independents favorable 21%, not favorable 30%.
 
Now: Overall favorable 21%, not favorable 31%.
Oct. 2010: Overall 24%, not favorable 26%.

Hardly reason for glee. Overall lost ground since Oct. 2010.

I'm trying to understand the positives.  It's basically 6 months until the elections, and the Tea Party in general still hasn't recovered from the Ted Cruz/Mike Lee publicity stunt.  Cruz is raking in the dough, and has a solid base for the 2016 primaries, but other than that, the movement in general is seen less favorably than before his shutdown.  Sure, there is a recovery in the numbers (it's hard to go much lower than 14%), but as you posted, the favorable rating is lower now than in the 2010 elections, which hardly indicates that the Tea Party movement has gained traction since the last mid-terms.  It's even lower than it was during the 2012 election, and we all know how that worked out.   :shrug:

TP support is narrow, but deep and loud. They talk to each other, and become convinced they are more "favorable" than the public sees them.

See the independent figures. Not good.

Independent figures? The tea party is independents so what independents are they polling? Independent democrats that are displeased with Obama and want Hillary maybe.

This cycle will pretty much doom the credibility of the Tea Party if these ringers (i.e., Milton Wolf, Dwayne Stovall, Matt Bevin) they've backed in the primaries go down to defeat as it appears they will.

Some are so hate filled of the tea party because they are such diehard GOPers or leftists they are failing to see the overall point.



Obama was blamed for the government shutdown more so. The media does not want any blame casted towards Obama and the truth hurts that the blame game no longer works. Obama's jig is up, even with the media cowtailing him like they are a part of his campaign. People saw through Obama 'making it hurt,' so the republicans can get the blame and the tea party is seen for what they are- the good guy, the average, grassroots caring Americans putting country before politics and caring for the vets that got shut out and not going on late night TV taking blame because they cower to Obama.

I repeat what Charles Krauthammer (no flaming conservative by a long shot) said on Special Report yesterday........ "the reports of the TP demise are overstated - the TP is alive and thriving"

I've been told the the shutdown was a positive for the Tea Party.  Clearly is wasn't.  It was a positive for Ted Cruz, though.  He raised not only his profile for 2016, but also millions of dollars from supporters.

It sucks that the GOP had to go on record with a cloture vote on Ted Cruz's latest disaster-in-the-making, but thankfully the adults bit the bullet and took a vote instead of shutting down the government again.  The Tea Party would be at 10% if Cruz had gotten his way again, but he was saved by the very GOP who he is trying to defeat.

I didn't know until last week that Cruz was threatening to filibuster the background check bill last April but cooler heads prevailed and allowed cloture so Democrats were forced to  defeat the bill.  The man has no awareness of strategy whatsoever.
