Ok last time this did not go well so again we try.
Our state has a weird voting pattern to me. WV is what you would consider a Christian state. We can come to that conclusion very.easily.
8 out of 10 have some how had a connection tochurch in some way or fashion. 6 out of 10 go to church atleast 2 to 3 time's a month. Compared to other states we have deep Christian moral views.
Now its no secret that the Democratic party does not share most of those views or morals. Its really the other way around.
Every four years our state votes based on our moral beliefs. We always go Republican.
So why is it only the presidential race we vote the way we believe? All of the local races with in the state WV votes Democrat. WHY?

Interesting questions. I wonder if maybe WV continues to vote in Democrats because people don't really understand that the current Democratic party is not that of our fathers and grandfathers (and mothers and grandmothers). West Virginians are by and large fiscally conservative and socially conservative. So I don't get it either why WV votes for spend, spend, spend Democrats. Any insights from any politically savvy out there?

Well this is going to sound hateful but it's not met to. I can only find one connection between Democrats and WV. Welfare, nothing else we have in common. So you could say we trade in our morals for checks and free food.

Unions could be a big factor but lets face it, WV is not Detroit. Welfare out weighs unions. Unions are mostly connected to coal mines. There's just more support from welfare programs then working people. Working people in WV are out numbered. Welfare is just way more of a factor then unions when it comes to voteing practice.
