Congressional races will matter to these people, they wont stay home. It wont matter who the candidate is, they understand the importance rep, senate and local races to changing leadership overall, not just at the top.
"Even as tea party idol Michele Bachmann has emerged as a prominent contender for the Republican presidential nomination, the popularity of the tea party movement among the US public is slumping to a new low.
That's the message of a new CNN/Opinion Research poll that asked whether Americans have a favorable opinion of various people and groups.
When it came to "the tea party movement," known for its hard line on federal spending and deficits, only 31 percent of respondents said they have a favorable view. That's down from 37 percent in mid-July, and the lowest level since the CNN poll began asking the question in January 2010."

“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

A sad day for skier Lindsey Vonn......
The Tea Party doesn't have to have a wide popularity approval. They only have to be popular where the important races are. California can decide that their approval rating is 10% and it doesn't matter.
Wisconsin was going to show them also. It didn't happen.
