  •  How does this invalidate my point? (0+ / 0-)

    From your table there, I see the highest total was for the 2008 election year, as was my main point. All the others--non-Presidential years--are lower. What you don't show (which might invalidate my other claim about how Rs always benefit) are the votes for the R candidates. Did they do better in off years, percentage-wise?
    In Virginia, to be sure, 2009 was a worse-than-usual off year--seemingly, since we don't have the R vote totals. The more interesting total to me, though, is 2010, which indeed shows a lower total than 2006, the only other comparable year here. But couldn't that be attributed to the lack of a riveting Senatorial race that year also?
