Huffington Post asks "Just how unpopular is President Barack Obama in some parts of the country?"
The answer is below.
Keith Judd, federal prison inmate Number 11593-051, was on West Virginia's Democratic primary ballot, along with Barack Obama and with 96 percent of the vote counted, Judd held 41 percent of the vote.
Huffpo also points out this isn't the first state that has voted anti-Obama in the Democratic primaries.
In Oklahoma, anti-abortion protestor Randall Terry got 18 percent of the primary vote. A lawyer from Tennessee, John Wolfe, pulled nearly 18,000 votes in the Louisiana primary. In Alabama, 18 percent of Democratic voters chose "uncommitted" in the primary rather than vote for Obama.
It is kind of weird that a felon cannot vote in an election but can pay a $2,500 fee and file forms and get their name on a ballot for an election. Just imagine if a serious contender had been put up against Obama for Democrats and how many votes they would get.
Hot Air points out that while West Virginia might be embarrassing for Obama it is just an entertaining sideshow and mentions North Carolina where Obama ran unopposed and still over 20 percent of the vote went to "no preference" rather than casting a vote for Obama.
Note- North Carolina, as was mentioned yesterday, also passed the Amendment One ban against same-sex marriages and barring legal recognition of unmarried couples, which will now be added to the North Carolina Constitution. This makes North Carolina the 31st state to add a similar amendment to their constitution.

Of course according to some, Obama's wasn't humiliated by a prison inmate, Judd, getting 41 percent of the vote in the Democratic primary because of Obama's polices, like shoving Obamacare down American's throats, or because of high unemployment, massive increased debt, bailouts, government spending, divisiveness, open class warfare, tax increases, etc...... no, no, no , no, it can't be any of that!!!!
The real reason Obama is losing 41 percent of his own vote is racism according to Taylor Marsh as she tells her readers "When you're voting for a criminal over a the first African American president the reason is obvious."
Marsh isn't the only one screaming racism either. They just can't admit that Obama's policies are unpopular, so they use their predictable race card every time they can't explain, justify or excuse.
Twitterverse conservatives are having a little fun with the West Virginia Democratic primary. Hey, we take our entertainment where we can find it in politics.
