A poll conducted late last month for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) shows him with a wide lead over challenger David Brat heading toward next Tuesday's Republican primary election. The poll, shared with Post Politics, shows Cantor with a 62 percent to 28 percent lead over Brat, an economics professor running to Cantor's right. Eleven percent say they are undecided.

Well, dang, Eric. Looks like the poll was wrong. Maybe Gov Perry will give you a job making all the illegals happy down here in Texas. I hear there are complaints about the food and medical care.

The last laugh may be on the conservatives. Cantor is still in the House until after the next election and now can push his amnesty with others without having to worry about an election.

That may be true. But nobody will listen to him. His influence is done!

A poll conducted late last month for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) shows him with a wide lead over challenger David Brat heading toward next Tuesday's Republican primary election.

That means:
A. The poll was wrong.
B. The campaign lied about the poll.
C. Cantor blew a 34 point lead in a fortnight!

Each response points to a bad campaign by Cantor in a different way.

I think its the McDanielmentum. Its spreading! I wonder how SC turns out tonight. Graham certainly had worse odds of avoiding a runoff than Cantor had of losing.

And if Cantor had won tonight, he would not have pushed amnesty? The RINOs were going to do to us what they were going to do to us this year anyway, regardless of the primary outcomes. But as of 2015, at least Cantor won't be able to screw us anymore. He's done.

Either way he would push it in the lame duck session.

Like Cantor or anybody in the GOPe would give a damn about that anyway. Corporate money is piling into their bank accounts to support amnesty. Cantor can get himself a nice lobbying job or take some time off and run again in 2 years.

The lesson here is an amnesty booster with every advantage just lost their primary in epic fashion.

He may want to lead a scorched earth lame duck campaign but I seriously doubt anyone will be foolish enough to follow.

Well when you depend on a poll shoved up your @ss, then you shouldn’t expect anything good as a result.

Don't kid yourself. No one in DC wants to be sent home in this manner. No one.

Dunno - need a VA creeper's input.

That would be hilarious, though. I'm sure they expected Cantor in a walk.

So.... conservatives should have not let him lose the primary?

I think having to vociferously counter Cantor for a few months is probably worth it.
