    the old Democratic machine is crumbling

    A lot of politicians used to register as Dems because it was the only party with any play (transl: jobs and political favors to give). This is changing, especially as more Dems are being investigated for corruption. see Mayor Emmet Pugh in the heart of WV-03.

    Dems still control the state Senate, and the House looks pretty tight by some quick math, but WV-state 07 (based again in the heart of WV-03) is represented by three Republicans.

    Again anecdotally, the lawn signs I referred to were for down ballot races (magistrate, school board, Sheriff, etc.).

    I admit that most of my experience with the area is anecdotal but I stand by my predictions. Even the Dems I know harbor some pretty right wing beliefs.

      candidate, say an Angus King type who'd appeal to those who are generally fed up with what passes for politics these days?
