There's a lot of tea leaf reading you can do in the Presidential Primaries in the US right now. A lot of it can be done with using the ghost votes (early absentee ballots and all that) cast for Republicans no longer in the race to predict who should have stayed in, and what the voters of a state really think. You can do entire pages of statistical analysis on this. That's on top of the reams of which poll results are likely to be altered because of which candidate's last minute ground game, etc., etc.

Probably more productive to just drink the damn tea. At this point, the Republican race is really up in the air (the Democratic less so), and everyone should accept that until after the conventions are over. Then it's time to start figuring out what to do for the actual race that half the country has forgotten about.

I think you have identified the problem: people need to pick a variety of tea. They also need to relax about other people's tea drinking proclivities. (I currently have a mug of Earl Grey steaming beside me as I writ this.)

The perspective of the U.S. elections from the outside has been baffling. It puts me in mind of seeing a crowd at some sort of blood sport (a cockfight or the bull ring).
