Dem Operatives Credit Tea Party for 2010 Wins

A survey of Democratic 2010 campaign operatives shows 64% of those polled said the Tea Party was a source of enthusiasm for the GOP, not division.  Perhaps now the politicians and pundits trying to blame tea partiers for everything from falling short of a GOP Senate majority to racism will now find a new hobby.

The limited government movement continues to pick up steam as the newly empowered congressional Republicans aim to rein in federal spending.  But while Tea Party members may favor GOP candidates, don’t be surprised if failing to make progress on spending reform leads to more contested GOP primaries in 2012.
