Democrats Aim to Turn Anti-Trump Sentiment Into Votes in Virginia (New York Times/Reuters)

Republicans hold a 66-34 advantage in the lower house of the Virginia legislature. Stephen Farnsworth, a political analyst at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, expects Democrats will make significant gains, especially by focusing on suburban districts.

But a takeover of the chamber would require a collapse of Trump supporters, he told Reuters.

“A Democratic majority in the House of Delegates is going to require a tidal wave,” Farnsworth said.
