The drop-off in traffic to political websites now that the election is over has begun in force.
According to figures provided to 24/7 Wall St. by online audience measurement firm Hitwise, Slate lost 75% of its audience from November 5 to November 9.
The Huffington Post lost half of its audience over the same period and Politico lost 50%.
Are the numbers right? The sample sizes are small, so they are probably not exactly accurate, but the trend is hard to deny.
