Even Democratic pollster Peter Hart, who helped conduct the survey, says this shows the tea-party movement "isn't a small little segment, but it is a huge part of what's driving 2010."

There is one piece of bad news for Republicans in the poll. Voters now favor Republican control of Congress by a three-percentage-point margin of 46 to 43 percent, down from nine points a month ago.
