Why does a single hub articles score fall? I have had two I noticed that scored very highly, and then dropped after a short while. Both were current events Hubs and interst has either fallen off or most have read them. Is that the answer, or is there more too it?
Some of it is probably due to a current event that's losing interest. But some of it is due to how HubPages calculates scores: they always fluctuate.
Then the score is not really related to Quality, both of these were in the 90's now they have dropped considerably 10 pts or more
Quality is part of it, but HubPages is never going to reveal exactly what they do or how, as that would just make the system open to unscrupulous manipulation.
However when you are talking about a current event article versus something written to be evergreen, I'd bet that traffic and how long your visitors stay on your Hub are big factors.
I myself don't write on current events because once the interest window closes, you've got a Hub that just doesn't do much.

Article for discussion. I know that this recent development has already been mentioned by some hubbers in forums. But I am now wondering if this might be the main reason why we are seeing the current traffic...
