Perhaps the prison inmate and the president could switch places?
Wall Street Journal:
Democrats-those are members of the president's party-voting in the West Virginia presidential primary gave 40% of their votes to a man whom the Associated Press identified as a federal prison 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, the AP reported. With 90% of precincts reported, he had 40.3% of the vote to Mr. Obama's 59.7%
Mr. Judd was leading or had won in at least five of the state's more than 50 counties.
Mr. Obama is not likely to contest West Virginia this fall, much less win it. Still, the results show why Democrats in the state have been so eager to draw distance from the president, and they may signal problems for the president in other parts of the region.
Earlier this month, West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin released a statement saying he was not yet able to endorse either Mr. Obama or the presumed Republican nominee, Mitt Romney.
Sen. Joe Manchin has been similarly noncommittal about the presidential race.
Mr. Judd has run in prior elections-for president in 2008 and mayor of Albuquerque in 2007, for example. For the curious, he has laid out a manifesto of sorts in a filing with the Federal Election Commission that touches on health care, the power of special interests and other matters.

I’d rather have Obama as a jail bird than as President, but maybe that’s just me.
How many voters actually knew who Judd was. I think it was more a case of ABO.
Only 40%? Is this the same West Virginia that is losing all their coal mines thanks to Obama’s policies?
Actually it was 41%. O only got 59%. Judd ended up winning 10 WV counties in the final tally. I wonder if he plans on moving there when his service to the state is up.
I think he only lost my county by a scant 31 votes!
Out of curiosity I keep searching for for a more complete description of his crime. This is about all there is anywhere on the net.
Those must have been quite some threats eh?
The federal prisoner would do much less damage to our country than the current CPUSA/Kenyan/Muslim usurper.
Hey, we have another historic first here.
Fed Prisoner is chosed over a sitting president.
Bet the dims are proud now.
Frankly, for all We the People really KNOW about Obama....he could be a jail bird!!
chosed should be chosen.
pre appologies to the spelling polis.
Though he can’t vote, I don’t think he’d be Constitutionally disqualified from being president,
unlike the current occupant.
Fed prisoner probably has a legitimate birth certificate.
His education records is readily available.
His SSN is correct.
His entire history is open to any judge or attorney who wants access.
He probably knows in his heart that there are 50 US states.
Even though he is a prisoner, he probably doesn’t bow to anyone.
Bet he has had a few real female girlfriends.
Pretty sick that a federal inmate has more in common with us than the POS currently occupying our White House.
OH Damn, I had a thought.
I know, don’t overdo.
Anyway, Romney should use the mugshot of the federal prisoner and portray him as the dimrat candidate.
Make some kind of statement that the people have spoken and decided to go with a federal inmate instead of their current kenyan.
Probably won’t happen, but would be funny as hell.
Even drug dealers and embezzlers have more real-world experience. ZerO has done nothing but get paid to stir up racial strife and suck at the taxpayer's endless teat his entire life.
It's even worse than that, another 20,000 West Virginia democrat primary voters chose to leave the presidential ballot blank on Tuesday. Added to the 40% who voted for the guy in prison, that means a majority of West Virginia DEMOCRATS would not cast a vote for Obama. The democrat party in West Virginia is so afraid those voters are going to stay home in November and kill them in the local and state races that they are actually coming out and saying it's ok for democrats to vote for Romney or leave the ballot blank in November. Anybody that thinks Obama isn't in trouble and is going to sail to reelection is not facing reality (as democrat James Carville warned the party a couple day ago).
What sort of threat lands you in federal prison for 13 years?
I thought it was hilarious when I first heard about it.
What if it’s phony though?
If nobody questions these results, maybe they won’t question the widespread cheating that will happen with the Soros connected vote tabulators of 2012.
I just don’t trust anything anymore!
If these results are legit, there ought to be wholesale panic throught the DNC. I’m not seeing it, but then again, I’m not keeping up with things like I once did.
