It seems Obama came close to losing the primary to a virtual unknown in West Virginia. A man by the name of Keith Judd succeeded in getting 41% of the votes here.
Not too shabby for a man who is currently in prison on a felony conviction.
That is SOME commentary on the status of America. Wow!
He actually won 9 counties.

Maybe they think a professional criminal is a better choice than one who professes to be honest!
You may be onto something!!! Even if not, good post.
I agree with aquasilver, maybe, just maybe America is waking up to the truth in Washington...
There are a lot of truths in America.....racism being one of them.
Unless you honestly think Dems would put a man in prison over Hillary?
Cause she's been in Washington longer than Obama.
And a majority of the Republicans in there now have been there forever.....should we vote for felons instead of them?
somehow I doubt it.
Priceless. Obama is nearly neck and neck with this guy in WV.
Maybe I spoke too soon. Looked this guy up....he's run for prez a lot of times. And he's smart.

Intelligence does not equal wisdom. He may have the former, but if he's in prison, he lacks the latter.
Not saying he is wise but to presume that all people who wound up in jail are not is a bit of a leap, I know a lot of people who i would consider wise who did time for activism.
I believe he's in prison for extortion. Maybe some people didn't think there was that much difference except for the conviction.
My guess is that the same people voted for McCain in 2008.
WV has a closed primary. Voting is restricted to the part you are registered under.
They overwhelmingly supported Hillary in 2008 because of Obama's issues with coal.

“People don’t like to deal with it, but the fact of the matter is, the president’s problems are in large measure because of the color of his skin,” , the third-ranking House Democrat said Wednesday in response to a question about Obama’s reelection prospects, McClatchy reported

Yeah, but it's WV after all.
What percent of that 41% is kissing cousins with Keith Judd?
He's interesting to me.

He is in jail for making threats....maybe he was protesting? He seems to be one who fights for others.
Anyone who voted for this guy did not do their research. It is nothing to be proud of voting for a convicted felon who made threats of violence against others, and I especially shake my head at those saying well "they probably did not know who he was". It harkens back to what Sarah Palin said about voting for anyone but Obama. However, my feeling is Obama is the only candidate who believes in equality and equal opportunity for all Americans in the presidential race. So if you are listening to Fox news and Sarah Palin and patting yourself on the back because you voted for anyone but Obama, that does not bode well with the research you are making regarding your choices at the polls. We have a president who is against Supreme Court rulings like Citizens United, and whoever got a felon put on the ballot did it to distract you from the real issues. The GOP arguing for tax cuts for billionaires does not care about middle class Americans, but if you want to vote against your own best interests...
