Is the demise of the Tea Party near?
According to a new CNN poll — the Tea Party’s favorability rating has sunk to an all-time low — just 32%. And 47% of respondents view Tea Partiers negatively. The poll is on the heels of nearly three months of Tea Party rule in the House of Representatives that’s seen nothing accomplished on jobs or getting our economy moving again. And this week — there are reports that Tea Party Republicans are threatening to shut the government down unless they get everything they want in budget negotiations.
