Republicans and Tea Party Activists in 'Full Scale Civil War'


According to Bozell, communication between Congressional leaders and outside activist groups is now "very, very bad."

All of this comes as the popularity of the Tea Party is viewed unfavorably by a majority of Americans for the first time, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday.

And the budget compromise brokered by bi-partisan negotiators is slated to come up for a vote Thursday despite a vocal minority of opponents, a clear indication that Boehner is no longer willing to allow opposition from his right wing to stymie his agenda.

However, Bozell suggested that Republican leaders are trying to push a vote through a quickly as possible because they fear a rising tide of opposition.

"You would see a stampede develop," Bozell said. "The more people look in it, the more negatively they view it."
