Don’t be surprised that President Obama lost 40 percent of the vote in West Virginia to a convicted felon currently residing in a Texas prison. Or that he lost similar percentages of the vote last night in Arkansas and Kentucky. A map run by the New York Times in December 2008 pretty much predicted today’s events.
