Eric Cantor is in trouble

This could be a little early, but the House Majority Leader appears to be going down.

He was expected to easily turn aside a tea party challenger, but Eric Cantor is now losing by a whopping 11 points in his primary with about 51% of precincts reporting.

That matters more when minorities and milennials are happy with the alternative, and polls show that's not the case right now. We will see if they show up to vote in the midterms

Much of it was because of Cantor’s hubris and the arrogance of his top staffers.
They sound like a staff made up of many Cochises.

I'm pushing my daughter to get out in vote in them.

Just found out that Cantor was a Ron Paul-hater too! So this is even sweeter to see him go.

He'll probably get a job on K Street tho.

I wouldn't say that, but this election probably has little to do with the fortunes of either party.

For my part, I think we're at the point where the Republican establishment has disregarded their base for so long that almost any change in leadership will be a good thing.

But the seat was not in question, it will be red no matter who is actually holding it, and seeing a shakeup in the Republican power structure is not a bad thing. Especially if no one could work with him or his office, as the prior posts indicate.

A fine coup as long as the tea party keeps their eyes on the prize, which they won't.

Their role should be influencing politics, not driving it. They're going to get a harsh reality check when Americans as a whole reject their inability to compromise, they completely lose the Hispanic vote when they could have at least salvaged some of it and same for the growing moderate base and swing voters.

Basically, the tea party is setting the stage for a dismantling of Republican leadership. If Hilary wins the election we could be looking at 16 years straight of liberal rule and that scares the living shit out of me. As of now, it sure looks like we are setting the stage for a polarizing figure to win the Republican ticket.

If the tea party influence cripples ability to take majority leadership in the houses and the presidency, then what exactly has been accomplished? They have to essentially pray that Hilary loses and that's not going to be easy.

The rank-and-file Dem can be bought with the promise of a cell phone. Team that up with the bright-eyed (inexperienced) youth and I see problems for the conservatives moving forward. Essentially the poor will sell-out for a paltry sum, others (youth, tree-huggers, and Hollywood hacks) can be bought with a fairy-tail. In the case of Hollywood, they're life is to portray fantasy as reality, so there's no wonder in why so many of them see things from a screwy angle. Like the lady who thinks mean tweets is like war. A nice and convenient world SHE lives in...

So yeah, like all kids who make mistakes that experience has taught the older wiser (because they're older) to warn them about, but they did it anyway, when they're proven wrong, their reply will usually start with the word "but"! And our reply might start with, "well, we don't live in fantasy land, and it's not a perfect world......."

That's a whole lot of speculation for an opinion. I think people will be just as sick of left-wing rule as they were of Bush Republican big govt rule. Especially since polls consistently show a majority thinks our govt is doing too much.

You don't know what's gonna happen. No one else does either. Anyone who predicts such things, is obviously imparting their own bias into such predictions.

If Cantor doesn't get a job on K Street, I hope he enlists to fight those wars he's so in love with.

Good points, but the forest among your trees is that the Tea Party vs. Establishment battle is a distraction. The tea party has pushed the ideology of the entire R party so far to the right that the primary process going forward will likely poison the winner's electability.

Congress is a different matter. As the 2012 election proved, the playing field is tilted such that R's can get less votes than D's and still hold a 20+ seat majority in the House.

This shows how FAR LEFT you are. Then again, you at least know you're a socialist.

If anything, the more the Rs push for aggression and military actions, THAT's what will hurt them if you read the polls. Everywhere, the fruits of our promiscuous interventions are showing up as failures.
