    SOURCE 1: Tea Party crashes, just 8 percent are members | WashingtonExaminer.com
    SOURCE 2: Tea Party Hits Record Level Of Unpopularity In Public Opinion Poll
    SOURCE 3: Rasmussen: Just 8% Now Claim Tea Party Membership
    SOURCE 4: Just 8% Now Say They Are Tea Party Members - Rasmussen Reports™

    So what does this mean exactly? I hold no love for the Tea Party but I don't think they need to disappear either. All opinions deserve a voice: just because they may be unpopular doesn't mean they're any less valuable.

    There is no membership in the tea party. There is no organizational structure, nor is there a membership list. The tea "party" is issue driven.

    Maybe that's way the Tea Party has been relegated to the "fringe extremist" classification.

    Where did this concept eminate from..the idea that all Conservatives somehow are die-hard Tea Party Backers...most are not.:confused: More left wing propaganda.

    using two words with the same meaning right after each other is kind of silly. We dont call them "ship boats".

    Also, just saying that someone who disagrees with you is an extremist doesnt make it so, no matter how "hard solid" you try.

    I've never heard that all of conservatives are also TP backers. Hell, not even half. Some.

    Some of the left here likes to link every Republican, Conservative or fiscally responsible person to the Tae Party. Anything that they think diminishes a poster is fair game to them.
