Against Obama, even a jailbird gets some votes
Google/AP ^ | 5/9/12 | Lawrence Messina

Just how unpopular is President Barack Obama in some parts of the country? Enough that a man in prison in Texas got 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. Obama received 59 percent of the vote to Judd's 41 percent.

For some West Virginia Democrats, simply running against Obama is enough to get Judd votes.

"I voted against Obama," said Ronnie Brown, a 43-year-old electrician from Cross Lanes who called himself a conservative Democrat. "I don't like him. He didn't carry the state before and I'm not going to let him carry it again."

In North Carolina, more than 20% of the DEMOCRATS voted against Obama in the uncontested Democrat primary.

His popularity is a hoax.

Some votes? Don’t you just love the MSM slime. 42% of the whole total is not the same as “some votes”. It’s a mandate to tell the punk POTUS he might as well write off WV.

“Birds of a feather flock together”...........One inmate almost beats another (prospective) inmate (Obama).

Gotta love it!

Maybe we will get lucky and Obama, Axelrod, Holder, et. al., will become roommates at a federal correctional facility in the next few years for running guns to the Mexican cartels.

4 out of 10 votes go to an inmate just because he’s running against obama!

LOL.

We used to hang for treason, not just lock up. Obama should be in a Mexican prison with Holder.

How will WV vote this fall? If I had to guess I would say they will most likely vote for Mitt, but very reluctantly. I won’t be voting for him. I will go full bore for the down-ticket, but the Constitution Party will most likely get my nod. Virgil Goode.

In our primary on Tues. Every state/county/city race was won by a Republican except for one. We have a strong Tea Party.
