Question of the Day: Tea Party [Poll]

Is the Tea Party helping or hurting politics?


The Greater Boston Tea Party has announced a new leader, the Boston Globe reports. Haverhill's Christine Morabito will take over for the group that has dominated political headlines over the last two years and made waves in the 2010 midterm elections.

Since its inception, though, the tea party has often been a source of controversy. Many blame tea party members for political stalemate in Washington resulting from ideological purity.

Others, however, feel the Tea Party has driven positive discussion in politics focused on smaller government and limiting debt.
