GOP Primary Voters Say Tea Party A Plus

WASHINGTON, Aug. 19 (UPI) — Most Republicans say the oft-criticized Tea Party movement will be a plus for their party in next year’s U.S. presidential race, Rasmussen Reports said Friday.

Fifty-eight percent of likely Republican primary voters said they believe the grassroots movement will help Republicans next year, while 22 percent said the movement would hurt the party, results indicated.

Eight percent of likely GOP primary voters said they didn’t think the Tea Party movement would have any impact while 12 percent said they weren’t sure.

Seventy-two percent of likely Republican primary voters say they would more likely favor a candidate who shares their views rather than one who has a better chance of winning; 22 percent expressed the opposite view.

In a twist, 75 percent of likely voters not aligned with the Tea Party movement were more committed to finding a candidate who shares their views. Results indicated 67 percent of Tea Party activists searched for candidates with like views.

Results are based on a nationwide survey of 1,000 likely GOP primary voters conducted Monday. The margin of error is 3 percentage points.
