So far, voter turnout has not declined in the democratic areas of Virginia as the state is on track to break its government turnout record.

Democratic turnout hasn’t declined in Virginia (so far)

Dave Wasserman of The Cook Political Report tweeted:

The Virginia election media theory may not be true

The media working theory on this election was that Biden’s low approval rate combined with Republican enthusiasm would mean Democrats stay home while Republicans show up to vote and Youngkin wins.

High turnout in democratic areas state is bad for Glenn Youngkin. Republicans need low Democratic turnout, especially in the northern part of the state, to have a chance of a close victory.

Since there are more Democrats than Republicans in Virginia, it is logical to assume that breaking a turnout record will benefit Democrats, but it is too early to draw any conclusions.

It is possible that Youngkin could win an election with a high turnout, but that was not the scenario he was hoping for in his campaign.

The Democrats could get their constituents out, and if the Democrats showed up to a reasonable extent, Terry McAuliffe’s odds of winning would only be helped.
