The latest CNN poll says that unfavorable views of the tea party have surged by more than 20 percentage points over the past year:

Nearly half of all Americans have an unfavorable view of the tea party movement....A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Wednesday indicates that 32 percent of the public has a favorable view of the two year old anti-tax movement.

Hmmm. Unfavorables are up and favorables are down, but still, 32% of the country continues to have a positive view of the tea partiers. I wonder what the floor on that number is? I'm going to take a wild guess and say that it's 27%.
