So you’re telling me that West Virginia Democrats are conservative? And a little bit crazy/stupid?
Next you’ll be telling me that North Carolinians hate gay marriage.
You truly are a font of wisdom in this forum.
Not throw too much water on your story, but here’s the final GOP tally:
Romney received 72,818 votes;
Rick Santorum received 12,667;
Ron Paul got 11,642;
Newt Gingrich attracted 6,581;
and Buddy Roemer earned 1,071.
So maybe your headline should be “Obama gets more votes in West Virginia than Romney!”? Hell, if you add them up you’ll see that Obama got more votes than the GOP candidates combined… you don’t see anything odd about that?
