The Obamacare case is a ‘win-win’ for the Tea Party

On March 26, the Supreme Court will begin three days of historic oral arguments on the president’s controversial healthcare law.

No matter what the court decides, it’s likely to galvanize the law’s opponents, identified with the Tea Party movement, more than its supporters.

Here’s why:

Elections are won and lost based on differential turnout, which is a fancy word for what happens when Team A, although tied with Team B in the polls, shows up in greater numbers at the polls — and thus cleans Team B’s clock.

Turnout is determined mostly by intensity of feeling. Unfortunately for Democrats, on this issue the intensity is concentrated among the law’s opponents within the Tea Party.
