Participation Gives Tea Party Its Muscle

Allison Kopicki: "Only 21% of Americans now say they support the Tea Party movement... But public support isn't what gives the Tea Party its influence."

"Interest in the 2014 election runs high among Tea Party supporters... 81% of voters who support the Tea Party say they will definitely vote in the 2014 election, compared with 67% of voters who don't support the Tea Party."

"Among Tea Party voters who identify as Republican and independents who lean Republican, 41% said they had been paying 'a lot' of attention to the 2014 election, compared with 25% of non-Tea Party Republican-leaning voters. And these Republican Tea Party voters are 15 points more likely to say they are very or somewhat enthusiastic about voting in this November's elections for Congress than non-Tea Party Republican voters."
