Dark, Foreboding News for Republican Beltway Insiders, Tea Party Hippy-Punchers

The Wall Street Journal just released an interesting poll, showing the tea party gaining steam (no pun intended), especially in the grassroots of the Republican party:

WSJ: In the survey, 71% of Republicans described themselves as tea-party supporters, saying they had a favorable image of the movement or hoped tea- party candidates would do well in the Nov. 2 elections.

The poll found that tea-party supporters make up one-third of the voters most likely to cast ballots in November's midterm elections. This showed the movement "isn't a small little segment, but it is a huge part of what's driving 2010," Mr. Hart said.

The tea party is a major driver of the so-called enthusiasm gap, with three-quarters of supporters saying they are intensely interested in the election.

Yes, indeed.
