    * Prisoner Keith Judd got 40% of vote in West Virginia to Obama's 60%
    * Inmate 11593-051 got on ballot by paying $2,500 fee and filing forms
    * Attracting 15% of vote normally qualifies candidate for a delegate to the Democratic National Convention

    Just how unpopular is President Obama in some parts of the country? Enough that a man in a Texas prison received four out of 10 votes in West Virginia's Democratic presidential primary.

    Inmate Keith Judd, 53, is serving 17 years for extortion at the Beaumont Federal Correctional Institution. He was sentenced in 1999 for making threats against the University of New Mexico and is due to be released on June 24 next year.

    With 93 per cent of precincts reporting, Obama was receiving just under 60 per cent of the vote to Judd's 40 per cent.

    I'm quite frankly amazed that your penal system allows convicted criminals serving sentences to run for office at all.

    For proper perspective, why didn't you post the total number of people that voted and the population of eligible voters?

    I'm especially surprised it's allowed in Texas. This is nuts. Felons can't vote, but they can run for office? Huh?!?!? icon_eek.gif

    Sometimes it seems like a felon would do a better job running the country than any president we've had in my lifetime anyway.

    This says a hell of a lot more about the racist, mentally retarded, bigoted, hillbilly, West Virginia voters than it says about our BLACK President.

    He's not white, which is still a problem for the Americans stuck in the 1800s.
