      Trust me. If he didn't cast that vote, he wins re-election in 2012.

          It's my experience based on the comments from many people I know that are normally Democratic voters. I can't say whether they voted for him or not, but what I can say is that most of them said that vote was troubling. It also came from many people I know from the coal fields who in turn have family in that district.

          Scientific polling? Nope. But that vote wasn't being discussed like that during the previous election. Oh, and for extra measure, KY has developed a general sense that Obama is anti-coal. That vote allowed them to lump Chandler in with him on that.

          Like I said, you couldn't talk to more than a couple of voters without that issue coming up. I should know -- I canvassed for Chandler.

          So, like I said -- trust me.
