But Palin and the tea party lead to O'Donnell and Angles nomination back in 2010 in two more states the GOP should have won. Akin and Mourdock are two more last year in states that should have been easy GOP victories.
I do think Palin's and the tea party influences is very big within the GOP itself and she/it is a force to be reckoned with. But come general election time, if they continue to help nominate candidates that are losers????????
