Many have characterized this sweep as a sign of a fundamental political shift toward the GOP. But acclaimed political commentator Ed Kilgore argues that the results of the midterm elections were a predictable outcome that was less an ideological watershed than the culmination of several long-term cyclical and historical trends.Election 2014 strips down conflicting and biased political narratives to present an accessible account of how and why Republicans triumphed so decisively.
