Full story: The Washington Post

Increasingly, West Virginia has become an extreme example of the hostility that shows up in every national poll when people are asked how they feel about the federal government.

Well, that is what happens when it is perceived on violating the states right to mine on its own land. In reality, the threat of climate change exceeds the need for West Virginia to slow down the speed of coal extraction.

I guess the Dems made a bad idea by alienate those people though. It will cost them a senate seat.

When Democrats became explicitly anti-white, especially anti-white rural.

No, I am pretty sure that is what happened when California went Democrat...and became a laughing stock of its former self.

West Virginia voting against the Democrats is the smartest move they can possibly make.

West Virginia going Republican is the fault of our leading Democrats.
When a man goes to see his Governor or Other elected officials about an issue and can't get in to see them for whatever reason.
What kind if leader is that?
Lead by closed door. I don't think so. If you're to all mighty to see your Constituents then you are too mighty for the job.

rollin you fool. WV was a blue state which recently turned red (probably due in large part to the numbers you just cited).

Lets watch and see those numbers turn around when the R's have a chance to turn things around for them......

You do realize that California is 50th, right?

The average person in California today is an illiterate 1st or 2nd generation Mexican immigrant, THAT is why they are Democrat.

It is 48th according to that list, WAY below West Virginia(geniuses compared to California).

If you consider Mississippi is being dragged down immensely by the uneducated black Democrats, California really would be 50th in the context we are talking about.

Without dumbass California Democrats would lose most national elections.

BTW Democrat Hawaii and Nevada are also very dumb.

I haven't written anything in while...I didn't and don't want to write anything. It all falls on deaf ears or the choir. I have a life to lead and live. I have to continue to earn a living for myself and in order to do this I must stop writing and concentrate on work. Work, something that our current government is making more scarce everyday. We the people continue to struggle and look for any kind of a way to survive while our politicians piss our wealth, jobs, morals and country down a rat hole. I have come to realize that those of us that are law abiding, tax paying, personally responsible, heterosexual, christian, gun owning, non muslim and citizens are under attack by the very same people who were elected to protect us AND uphold our constitution. We have fresh new attacks against Christmas and the Christ child nativity scene being displayed in our own country.

We have staff members of the White House that are criminals! This is insane! http://www.bing.com/search...
http://www.prisonplanet.com/

We are not getting ourLiberty and Justice to all! I never, in my 52 years of life have ever seen or witnessed such blatant hate, abuse of power, lies, deceit, cover ups and payoffs as I am seeing with Obama's administration, the DOJ, the EPA, IRS and the Main Stream Media. How many times are we supposed to swallow the constant stream of lies we are being fed everyday? Why aren't the people of this nation paying attention?

We as a country have NEVER been attacked on American soil as many times as we have with this president.
We as a country have NEVER called a terrorist act anything different than that as we have with this president in office.
We as a country have NEVER had a department of Justice that has been accused of a single crime against our country as we have now who by the way, is now in the middle of 3 separate crimes against our country.
We as a nation, do not like to be taxed let alone be targeted for by the IRS for being conservative, against big government or trying to educate people on our constitution.
We as a nation have NEVER seen as many scandals by one administration as we are seeing now.
We as a nation have NEVER had a foreigner as a president or a president that gets away with refusing to prove he is an American citizen as we do now.
We as a nation have NEVER had so many complete STUPID IDIOTS who would vote these socialist, marxist, American hating liberals into office as we do now.
NEVER before has the level of trust in our country's government been this low.
We as a nation have NEVER before experienced the DOJ, the President and the IRS defending themselves for laws that they have broken and committed against the American people as we do TODAY!

LIBERALISM, THE DISEASE
