President Barack Obama suffered quite a political slight in Tuesday's West Virginia presidential primary when a Texas prison inmate defeated him in eight of the state's 55 counties.
Keith Judd, federal prison inmate No. 11593-051, took 41 percent of the statewide vote. Obama, American president No. 44, received 59 percent.
Okay, I think it's safe to say Barack most likely will not carry West Virginia this November. (It hasn't supported a Democrat in the presidential elections since Bill Clinton's 1992 and 1996 campaigns.)
I wonder if this is something we can consider a deviation or a trend?
