Cantor lost touch with people
Placeholder Image
The favorite term to describe Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's primary loss to an unknown was "Earthquake!?" The New York Time's 2012 election-predictor guru Nate Silver even produced graphs comparing all 3.5 or higher Southern California earthquakes since 1999 to House incumbent loses in primaries since 2010.I can't blame Silver for having a little fun. The truth is, we were all shocked because we believed the Republican "establishment" was unshakable.Cantor's defeat means the 2014 election is no longer in the bag for the Republicans.
