Tea party ‘seeing spike in both interest and contributions’

To tea party activists, the upside of the IRS scandal blowing through the White House is simple: More and more are giving money, time and voice to the limited-government cause.

“We’re definitely seeing a spike in both interest and contributions,” said Sal Russo, co-founder of the California-based Tea Party Express, to Fox News.

A recent poll broadcast on Fox News on Monday confirmed: Now, 44 percent of likely voting Americans hold a favorable view of the tea party. That’s up from 30 percent a few months ago, the Rasmussen poll said.

Questions still remain whether that favorability factor will translate into votes in 2014. But the faith-in-government factor is a huge deal that crosses party lines — and hits especially hard when dealing with the much-hated IRS.
