    Is the Tea Party Relevant Anymore?

    Simple question. Should be a simple response.

    Does the Tea Party have any relevance in today's political arena?

    No. They had their moment of fame. I believe America is waking up to how nutty they were and how nutty their leaders were. They are back to becoming a "1 protest a year" group on tax day.

    The Tea Party has never been relevant except to TV pundits

    Not really. Obama did a good job at dispersing the movement.

    He did some prestidigitation and raised everyone's taxes while invoking positive sounding terms like "universal health care". He deluded the masses.

    Now they're all enamored and oblivious to Democrat politicking.

    They're done.

    They can't get people elected, they can't keep people in office.

    What little energy is left in the movement has been appropriated by the hard right wing of the Republican party.

    Yes they are relevant. If they weren't, so many people would not spend so much time trying to disparage them.

    You've begun a poll on the Tea Party, and others have voted, so my answer is yes.

    The Teaparty is similar to Perot and the reform party. A bunch of mainly old white people found something to get riled up about for a while, but lost energy. Something new will come around in the next 5-10 years though.

    They're relevant as a pop culture symbol more than as a political force.

    they're running my state, so I guess so.

    if you're asking about 2016 nationally, my guess is not as much. the anti-gay marriage and "deport them all" platforms will be largely ignored nationally, because the Republicans got smoked on them.
