Clinton’s struggles in West Virginia aren’t just about coal. They’re about Obama.

2. Suuuure. God forbid it's Hillary's own positions and issues of trust and honesty.

It's not that the state got more red. She does fine in red states. Claiming it's about race is laughable. She is a white candidate who identified "hard working white people" as her constituency. It's not about Obama's race either. He's not running.

Good grief. The crap they pull out of their ears, while quickly dismissing the possibility that it might be that Sanders' policies are more "worker friendly."

3. I actually agree with you on this.

I remember in 2008 and during the primaries on TV. They would ask the people who they were voting for or who. State after state, people who said they weren't voting for Obama gave silly reasons like him not wearing a flag pin or him not holding his hand over his heart during the national anthem. When they got to West Virginia. A little old lady finally said the truth and simply said she couldn't vote for a black man.

you can paint all West Virginia bigot color. Wow, what a stretch ! One little old lady.

5. Did I say that?

I said she was the only one who spoke the truth. I highly doubt someone didn't vote for Obama strictly because of a lapel pin.

In regards to the op. The statistics within the supplied link is hard to deny. No brush needed.
