Tea Party Divided Over Candidates

While Tea Partiers appear to be a key part of the electorate in the Iowa caucuses, polls show that they're not at all unified when it comes to choosing a candidate. While Rick Santorum amassed the most Tea Party supporters (nearly three out of every 10 voters), Ron Paul and Mitt Romney both earned the votes of roughly two in 10 Tea Partiers. This lack of unity could potentially affect the movement's overall influence in the Republican Party.
