Only 33,374 WV Democrats like Obama better than a felon.

Post by SamCogar on Thu May 10, 2012 5:28 am

Late Wednesday, with 100 percent of precincts reported, the unofficial total vote in the Obama-Judd match-up was pegged at 178,292, with Obama getting 105,833 votes to Judd's 72,459.

Much is being made of the fact that a Texas felon, Keith Judd, took 41 percent of the vote against incumbent President Barack Obama in West Virginia's Democratic primary election on Tuesday.

But the president may actually have polled worse among registered Democrats and independents who voted the Democratic ballot in the primary than the protest vote for Judd would indicate.

Early reports suggested that many voters in the Democratic primary skipped the race at the top of the ticket — registering a silent protest vote — but did cast votes for what are known in Washington as "Blue Dog Democrats"— fiscal conservatives.

The name of the federal prisoner -- Keith Judd -- who won 41 percent of the vote versus President Barack Obama in Tuesday's West Virginia Democratic primary isn't as important as the fact that the incumbent commander in chief won only 59 percent of the vote.

While West Virginia traditionally elects Democrats to statewide office, it is culturally conservative. West Virginia’s relatively poor residents rely heavily on pork projects from the government, as well as programs like Medicare and Medicaid. (A recent USA Today analysis found that West Virginia gets 28 percent of its income from government programs, more than any other state. Also, its population is second oldest in the nation, behind Florida.)
