The TP is a minority, but it is an activist one. They mobilize people to come out to vote the TP line in primaries and overwhelm the run of the mill, lackadaisical voters who tend not to show up for primaries--heck, they'd don't bother to show up for off year elections, which is why we here in PA have an asshat of a governor. And then you've to stir into the mix the gerrymandered districts that mean any Rep who passes from primary to general election is more or less guaranteed to win. It's a wonder the Republicans aren't even more scared of the TP.
