Tea For None?

Virginia may be for lovers, unless you are in the Tea Party.   A new poll from the Washington Post shows 53% of registered voters now oppose the Tea Party, including 55% of independent voters.  Granted it is only one state, and a state that was really hit by the shutdown, but if these views are held in other competitive states then the GOP may not have a big year in 2014.

With these declining poll numbers it does give the party establishment some ammunition to push back against Tea Party groups.  I wouldn’t be surprised if this stiffens the will of people like Lindsey Graham and Lamar! Alexander to stand up to their primary challengers.
