If 40% of West Virginia Democrats will vote for an inmate over President Obama, Romney is headed for a landslide of epic proportions.
CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Just how unpopular is President Barack Obama in some parts of the country? Enough that a man in prison in Texas is getting 4 out of 10 votes in West Virginia’s Democratic presidential primary.
The inmate, Keith Judd, is serving time at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Texas for making threats at the University of New Mexico in 1999. With 93 percent of precincts reporting, Obama was receiving just under 60 percent of the vote to Judd’s 40 percent.
For some West Virginia Democrats, simply running against Obama is enough to get Judd votes.
