The influence of the tea party movement appears to be on the wane - even in congressional districts that elected tea party candidates last year, according to a new survey. The report from the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press released Tuesday showed support for the tea party dropping nationwide, with more Americans viewing the movement unfavorably. The view of the Republican Party in the 60 districts represented by members of the House Tea Party Caucus has also suffered.

WASHINGTON -- Republicans on Saturday hammered President Obama over looming cuts to defense spending, saying the president has shown a "failure to lead" and done nothing to protect the military from being "hollowed" out by spending reductions. β€œThe president himself has opposed or disregarded every attempt we've made to work with him on a solution,” said Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), delivering the GOP weekly address. Obama and Hill Republicans, including West, agreed last year to slash spending on both defense and domestic programs if they could not reach a broader compromise on how to reduce the deficit.

Noting that House Republicans had predicted a gain of as many as 16 seats, Democrats touted the results as evidence of a superior campaign organization.

The freshman class may have ridden the 'tea-party' wave into office, but they're pretty skittish about jumping into the pool. Only 10 members of the 87 Republican freshmen in the House signed on to the tea-party caucus before the group's first meeting on Monday. The paltry turnout resembled the scant participation on the Senate side. When Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) called the first meeting in January, only four senators signed on to join. Conservative firebrand Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.
