Are Conservatives and the Tea Party Focusing Too Much on Establishment Republicans Instead of Defeating Democrats? [POLL]

Is Senator Ted Cruz and other Tea Party members focusing too much on defeating other Republicans instead of Democrats? Cruz has been criticized lately for looking out for himself instead of trying to help the Republican party. Last night, Ann Coulter appeared on Hannity and continued her criticism of some Tea Party groups according to the Daily Caller.

During the “Hannity” segment, Coulter attacked tea party groups for being filled with “shysters” and “conmen,” naming specifically the Senate Conservatives Fund as an example. The Senate Conservatives Fund was a key outside group that supported Cruz in his fight to “Defund Obamacare” last fall, which ultimately led to a government shutdown.

“And these people are just trying to get money off good Americans by saying we’re going after ‘establishment Republicans,” Coulter complained about tea party groups like the Senate Conservatives Fund. “How about going after Democrats?”

“Do not trust anyone who says they are trying to defeat ‘establishment Republicans,’” she added.

Without mentioning Cruz by name, Coulter railed against tea partiers who fail to understand that the “only way to repeal Obamacare is to elect Republicans.”

“It is not to be fighting against Republicans,” she said.

What do you think? Are Conservatives focusing too much on defeating other Republicans?
