Here are a few national and Virginia news headlines, political and otherwise, for Thursday, November 5. Also, I threw together a quick graphic showing the voter turnout dropoff by party in a few key Virginia House of Delegates districts. Notice something? Yep, the Democratic dropoff is greater than for Republicans from presidential to state/odd-year elections. If that didn’t happen, even given current House of Delegates districts’ gerrymandered lines, Democrats almost certainly would have a bunch more seats in the General Assembly.
