People are tired with the result we get. The Tea Party may be flawed but it was an attempt to say we are mad and won't take it anymore. They got demonized by the left so gravitated to the right. When I was growing up the people fed up with the staus quo mostly turned to the dems. I think most tea party folks would vote for neither party if they got a chance. Saying that some of their candidates seem to be dingbats.
