I believe it will drive people to the polls if we continuously remind them. Plus, we need to find out exactly who was involved. Especially the members of congress that urged the IRS to target conservative groups. If any of those individuals are up for reelection in 2014 they must be held accountable. I hope this doesnt turn into another Fast and Furious situation where it slowly just drifts out of the news cycle and is forgotten and overshadowed by the next big story.
It’s hard to say. For now, I’m saying yes, but I also know that the time until Election Day 2-14 in an eternity in politics. Will this scandal still have legs? It all depends on the media’s coverage of the event. Let me know your thoughts.

The chances that the IRS scandal alone drives all conservatives to the poll is probably medium range. But when you combine all three scandals plus the fact that two of them directly affect the Tea Party, True the Vote, and Fox news you will see an ugly turnover in the Senate.
It looks like little or no action will be taken on IRS scandal so it won’t get GOP votes and fund raising will suffer as many people won’t take the financial risk of landing on target lists. Immigration & NSA betrayals by prominent GOP leaders will curb GOP voting so I doubt we will see Senate majority. If GOP leaders weren’t so concerned with press liking them and if press was less biased things could be different.
