Is the POTUS in trouble with voting America, even with his own party?
CHARLESTON, West Virginia – 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.
"Keith Judd's performance is embarrassing for Obama and our great
state," outgoing West Virginia Republican Chairman Mike Stuart said.
