Response to Original message
109. Uh no.
How many votes have been cast in WV? How many votes have been cast total? Okay, do a bit of math. The numbers for Obama's "base" in WV is hardly reflective of the nation as a whole. Not even close. We Are talking about a few thousand votes, compared to the millions he has already received.

Nice try. No cigar.
