The Tea Party has grown tepid, a new survey shows, with just 8 percent of voters saying they belong to the right-wing movement.
Views of the Tea Party are steeped in negativity, a Rasmussen Reports poll showed, with 49 percent having an unfavorable view of the movement.
Only 30 percent of likely voters have a favorable view, the conservative polling firm said Monday.
Support for the Tea Party has dropped from a high of 24 percent in April 2010 — just after the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Rasmussen said.
In the survey of 1,000 likely voters, conducted Jan. 3-4, 21 percent were undecided, the pollster said. The margin of error was 3 percent, Rasmussen said.
