I'm old enough to remember when it was impossible for Democrats to win VA by double digits at the presidential level because of muh high Republican floor/inelasticity/overwhelmingly R rurals somehow overpowering NoVA.

Northam won by 9, so this would be an improvement.

Rapidly moving out of the "swing state" category (if it isn't already gone). But in an R+5 or more environment it may be flippable for the GOP.

It was clearly true at the time. But, Virginia changed. Virginia is very, very likely to go for Biden by double digits. 2020 Virginia.

Well, post-2017 I can't see any validity in those arguments... at all.

John Kerry could have won Virginia if he had invested the resources. It was there in 2004.

I don't think so. Bush was too strong in the South and the Obama coalition types were yet to be viable voters.

I always figured that Kerry would flip VA the way Bush flipped WV. Bill Clinton didn't lose VA by that much in 1996.

It's not a straightforward parallel. Probably, Dems were still losing more voters than Rs did in VA till the 2000s, if we are looking at generational trends driven by elderly voters. And generational trends of that kind were the biggest reason WV flipped.

VA looking once again as a DAFE DEM State, where DEMs will win the Pop Vote by +10%, likely rolling with the same Ntl margins like MI and WI in 2020...

Nothing to see here folks.... except another SAFE DEM State being yet another SAFE DEM State....

Man, Virginia is going to be very close without Tim Kaine on the ticket.

Exactly what I expected. A little to the left of the country. Unlikely to shift much back towards to the GOP in 2021 elections because the Democratic base is now the majority and ironclad. Not a landslide obviously.

There’s no way Biden wins VA by less than 13%. I think the polls are underestimating Democratic strength here.

Yep. Just like people also underestimated Biden's strength in VA in the primary, when turnout was sky high and he blew it out of the water.

Remember this site has people who believe that Sanders would have lost Loudoun, Prince William, Fairfax Counties against Trump if he were the nominee. When the truth is that those counties would have been the areas that pushed Sanders over the top in VA over Trump.

VA will definitely vote several percentage points to the left of WI/MI, lol.

Oh absolutely. Maybe not dramatically to the left of the country but in this electoral alignment it is relative rare to vote to left of country.

Still expecting a tiny R trend relative to 2016 though in VA. Meaningless though.
