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.

Trump Could Learn From the "Rat Park" Experiment

Even as Donald Trump's surrogates are re-tweeting photoshopped images of Hillary Clinton in blackface, Trump himself is trying to win the black vote by simply asking black Americans "What the hell do you have to lose?!"

And in response to the news that NBA star Dwyane Wade's cousin had been shot in Chicago, he sent out two tweets talking about how bad the crime rate is getting.
