Just wondering since the Democratic party pretty much is against everything your culture represents. From God, guns, gay marriage and nearly everything else.

Why has it not done a complete flip to a red state instead of dipping its' toe in and just voting Republican in the presidential elections?

When indoctrinating issues are twisted in a persons mind.People become confused as to what is the truth.Some call it,tools of the trade.Tools...God,Guns and Gays are issues that should never be on a federal level.

West Virgina has a history of the so called blue collar workers.From timber to coal miners.Hard working people that do not deserve to be twisted into politicl sway.

Shame on us for being so blind!

i think it has alot to do with the partial truths presented to the people by the press. They hear that the republicans are going to do away with medicare and other entitlements and they don't report what Obama and the democratic party has already done to these programs. Obama has spent it all.

Lets get rid of Rockefeller, Rahall and Manchin, the Obama puppets.

Let's not beat around the bush. The majority of West Virginians still have the my daddy said so mentality. Because the government supported families for multiple generations with handouts and charity, then that same government must be good. Thus we keep voting Democrat.

More minds are changing, and more people see the duck for what it is, a DUCK! While this current generation of voters will more than likely not change, the next generation of voters, will see to it that change happens.
