Daily Fix Poll: Which tea party candidate is most likely to win?

By Aaron Blake

Ever since Christine O'Donnell's big primary win this week (and even before), political analysts have been imagining what she would be like as a senator.

How would she fit in? What kind of senator would she be? How would she vote? Would she and other tea party senators join in a small-but-powerful group led by Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.)?

Those questions are pretty similar to the ones that were asked when several other tea party candidates prevailed in big-time GOP Senate primaries earlier this year. And, indeed, if the Republicans are to make significant gains in November, it would stand to reason that we'll see at least one or two of these candidates in the Senate.

Alaska's Joe Miller should be favored to join the Senate, regardless of whether the woman he beat in a primary, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), launches a write-in campaign tonight.

But who is most likely to join Miller? Kentucky's Rand Paul is running in the friendliest environment. Nevada's Sharron Angle has a severely unpopular incumbent in a swing state. O'Donnell is running an open seat race for which it looks like she will have a huge financial advantage.

What say you, Fixistas?
