Tea Party Unfavorability Jumps In New AP Poll

Tea Party Unfavorability Jumps In New AP Poll

It seems that the Tea Party's governing style, most clearly on display during the debt ceiling fight in Congress, has taken a toll on Americans' view of the movement. Polls have been showing a drop in its approval, and a new AP/GfK poll shows that its unfavorable rating has seen a sharp rise. 46 percent of those surveyed said they have a negative view of the Tea Party movement, versus 28 who say they view it favorably.

The last time the AP conducted a national poll on Americans' favorability of Tea Partiers was in their pre-governing period: throughout 2010 the conservative movement was viewed slightly unfavorably but the splits were close. In June of 2010 it even earned a positive rating, with 33 percent of over 1,000 adults surveyed finding the movement favorable against 30 percent. In the last AP rating, taken Nov. 3-8, 2010, directly after the 2010 election, the split stood at a slim negative rating of 32 percent favorable against 36 unfavorable.

The jump of ten points in the negative number is all in the "very unfavorable" category. In November of 2010 there were 22 percent who viewed the Tea Party that way, which has risen to 32 percent. The "somewhat unfavorable" number remains unchanged in the last nine months, steady at 14 percent.

i think its a well known fact that to be principled and to be popular isn't a common thing. 

plus so many leaches have attached themselves to the tea party that its making people think that the tea party is something different from what it is.

With Rick Perry as its new favorite candidate who the heck would like it. It's turned into an arm of the establishment. Sad to say but a lot of people still don't get it.
