    So why isn't this up more today? HELP!

    Look at what mattrcarl said above. Once big events are out of the way, volatility drops, even if the market goes down. I intend to buy VXX puts today or tomorrow if VXX gets in the high 36's again, because whether the market goes up or down after the election, VIX will likely go down. (Unless it's a 5% bloodbath like 4 years ago.)
