A newly released Gallup poll shows "Tea Party Republicans" are fired up and ready to storm the election polls on November 4. 

The poll found that 73% of Tea Party Republicans say they are "extremely/very motivated" to vote in 11 days. That compares to just 57% of "other Republicans" and 42% of "non-Republicans" who said they were equally eager to vote.

The issues of strongest concern for Tea Party members were Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists, the federal budget deficit, "the way the federal government is working," and the economy. 

Gallup concluded that one in four Americans support the Tea Party.  

Gallup's sample was collected throughout September.
