    We'll have to see but WV has 2 to 1 Democrat voters and Obama will not be on the ballot in 2014.

    Remember that even when Obama was getting the lowest percentage a Democrats has gotten in WV in ages in 2012, WV Democrats still won races for:

    US Senator - Manchin 61% to 37%
    Governor - Toomblin  50% to 46%
    SOS
    Auditor
    Treasurer
    Ag Commissoner

    and they held onto the state legislature.  Again this was all with Obama getting only 36% of the vote.
