CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Just how unpopular is President Barack Obama in some parts of the country? Enough that a man in prison in Texas got 4 out of 10 votes in West Virginia's Democratic presidential primary.
The inmate, Keith Judd, is serving time at the Federal Correctional Institution in Texarkana, Texas, for making threats at the University of New Mexico in 1999. Obama received 59 percent of the vote to Judd's 41 percent
Brown, the Cross Lanes electrician, did not learn of Judd's background until after he voted. He went to the polls before his 22-year-old daughter, Emily. She planned to vote for Judd, too, until she found out where he has been living. "I'm not voting for somebody who's in prison," she said. She was certain about one thing: "I just want to vote against Barack Obama."
I just want to vote against George Bush"
