  •  good result? (0+ / 0-)

    If the poll shows a good result for KY, I then want to see a poll for Idaho, as Idaho might then be flippable...:-)

    I still expect the Appalachian/Ozark states to go deep red in 2012.  We may get 20 point Romney wins in states from WV all the way West to AR.  Maybe MO will be around a 10 point Romney win, only because of Akin.

    •  deep red (0+ / 0-)

      I mean that the Appalachian/Ozarks regions is looking as deep red as the inland NW:  the dreaded ID-UT-WY region.

    •  I don't know. (0+ / 0-)

      I don't think Obama will win the state, but I'm not sure why he will do that much worse than last time. Sure, he might/probably will do worse overall, but since 2000, the result seems kind of fixed. Why do you expect it to be all that different from previous results? McCain seems like a much better fit for Kentucky than Romney does.

      "The election of Mitt Romney and a supporting congress this November would be a...disaster for America. Think of the trainwreck that has been the Conservative government in Britain since 2010. And square it."--Brad DeLong

      •  Primaries (0+ / 0-)

        I think these were the states where Obama got less than 60% of the primary vote, the rest of the vote going to convicted felons, perennial candidates, and Randall Terry.  From those results, I got the impression that animosity to Obama was really high in the Appalachian/Ozark region.  Maybe even high enough to keep the national numbers close.

      •  Coal.... (0+ / 0-)

        To whatever extent that some demosaurs hung on for Obama in east Kentucky in 2008, the coal issue will push them all en masse to Romney in 2012.  Romney by 22 in KY is my prediction.
