West Virginia is heavily Democrat and votes Republican in Presidential races. One might see a similar effect in Pennsylvania, but more muted, since more of the Ds are minorities. Liberals like to joke that Pennsylvania is made up of Philadelphia in the East and Pittsburgh in the West with Alabama in between. To a great extent they say that to make fun of the “hillbillies and hicks” across the state, assuming the “peons” will vote D, representing their class interests. But, considering how Alabama now votes, their snarky comment may still carry a grain of truth — but with a different electoral outcome than what they expect.
