    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 Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Texas for making threats at the University of New Mexico in 1999. Obama received 59 percent of the vote to Judd's 41 percent.

    For some West Virginia Democrats, simply running against Obama is enough to get Judd votes.

    "I voted against Obama," said Ronnie Brown, a 43-year-old electrician from Cross Lanes who called himself a conservative Democrat. "I don't like him. He didn't carry the state before and I'm not going to let him carry it again."

    When asked which presidential candidate he voted for, Brown said, "That guy out of Texas."

    Great find Gina!

    This is pure comedy gold. One article says he might also get a delegate...lol! Also saw he beat Romney in one county.

    Voters Say We Are All Inmate No. 11593-051 Now

    Tuesday's Results: The Tea Party shows it's alive and well, Wisconsin's embattled governor gets more votes than the top two Democrats and a federal inmate gives the president a primary battle. The natives are still restless.

    Conservative pundit and IBD contributor Ann Coulter once said she, like many Americans, would rather vote for Jeffrey Dahmer, known for his unusual culinary choices, over President Obama. Federal prisoner Keith Russell Judd, 49, is not quite in Dahmer's league, but for a substantial portion of West Virginia Democrats, he is also preferable to our campaigner-in-chief.

    Judd is serving time at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution in Texas, for extortion and making threats at the University of New Mexico in 1999. He got on the West Virginia state ballot by paying a $2,500 fee and filing a form.

    Democratic alibis for Obama's embarrassment have begun to sprout, including the expected one that Judd's vote consisted of bitter townsfolk clinging to their Bibles and guns, and fearful of others not like them. His defenders can't accept the fact that the president's policies and abysmal economic record, which include his war on West Virginia's coal industry, had anything to do with it.

    The article seems to speak for itself ...

    They both have some odd culinary choices.
