Gallup: Tea Party Support At All-Time Low

Gallup: Tea Party Support At All-Time Low

By    |   Monday, 26 October 2015 08:17 AM

Americans have lost faith in the rebellious tea party faction of the Republican Party, which helped the GOP reclaim control of the House nearly five years ago, a new Gallup poll released Monday shows.

Support for the movement is at an all-time low:
  •  17 percent of adults are tea party supporters, compared to 32 percent in 2010.
  • 24 percent oppose the tea party, compared to 31 percent last year.
  • 54 percent neither support or oppose the group.
Politico reports that support for the conservative political movement has not topped 25 percent since August 2012, just three months before President Barack Obama's re-election. 

Among subgroups:
  • Support among independents leaning Republican dropped from 52 percent in 2010 to 23 percent.
  • Support among conservative Republicans dropped from 63 percent in 2010 to 42 percent.
The poll was conducted Oct. 7-11, surveying 1,015 adults nationwide via landlines and cellphones with an overall margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.
