Tea Party Unsettled Ahead Of Super Tuesday

From CNN's Janet Digiacomo:

Ask different tea party volunteers in the days before Super Tuesday who the leading presidential candidate is and you will get different answers.

Rick Santorum has a lot of support in our unscientific polls, said Mark West of the Chattanooga, Tennessee, Tea Party.

Ron Paul is closest to our core values, said Michael Wilson of the Cincinnati, Ohio, chapter

We liked Michele Bachmann, said National Tea Party Coalition co-founder Michael Patrick Leahy.

The difference of opinion only proves what tea party volunteers say about the movement as a whole: Its followers are diverse in terms of conservative values and their own beliefs, which according to the various chapter leaders explains why no candidate is separating himself from the pack for the movement's support.
