Mitt Romney may be the Republican nominee, but he’s still not the Tea Party’s guy

In an interview with the Conservative Daily Caller – Tea Party Nation leader Judson Phillips had a message for the presumptive nominee saying, “The tea party is not going to coalesce around Romney…Most of us will vote for Romney, but we will not be out there with signs for him or his campaign.”

Of course – after Romney shakes the etch-a-sketch and portrays himself as a moderate against President Obama in the general election – then the Tea Party votes might not even be a guarantee anymore. But a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that Tea Party support might be a liability.

A plurality of Americans – 45% - now disapprove of the Tea Party – and the more Americans hear about it – the more they dislike it.
