POLL:Tea Party fires up the Democrats more than it influences Republicans
By Sean J. Miller - 10/07/10 05:55 AM ET

Voters in battleground House districts held by freshman Democrats approve of the Tea Party more than they disapprove of it, but say it wont influence their choice on Election Day.

The Hill/ANGA 2010 Midterm Election Poll of 12 crucially competitive districts found a 45-34 favorable-unfavorable rating for the conservative grassroots movement. But 55 percent of independents and 53 percent of Republicans say Tea Party support for a candidate will not make any difference.

Democrats break 66-15 against the Tea Party, and half say Tea Party support makes them less likely to vote for a candidate. So a Tea Party endorsement would motivate Dems to vote against a candidate slightly more than it prompts Republicans or independents to vote for one. And only 19 percent of independents said a Tea Party affiliation made them more likely to vote for a candidate.

The Tea Party swayed several primaries, said pollster Mark Penn of Penn Schoen Berland, which conducted the poll, but Im not sure its going to have a strong influence over the general election.
