    "A little of both".

    Definitely won't be at the low but it will take time to regain popularity. I think this specific situation has convinced a lot of Moderates that they may see eye to eye on some of the Republican message, for example spending, but it's not a party you trust to govern a nation

    Americans have a fleeting memory. It lasts about as long as the last news cycle. This is evidenced by those whining about the blooming debt, having forgotten already who planted the seeds.

    The republicans are already taking steps to separate themselves from the whackos who hijacked their party. If, and only if, the GOP can separate themselves from the hard rightwinger's, they may lure enough moderates and independents to vote their ticket again. It may take a while but it can be done. At least, I hope it can.

    It depends

    A narrative of the teabaggers as being stubbornly radical and uncompromising has been established. If they continue to obstruct the proper functioning of govt, they will maintain this narrative and it will affect them at the polls.
