Against Obama, Even a Jailbird Gets Some Votes

Just how unpopular is President Barack Obama in some parts of the country? Enough that a man in prison in Texas is getting 4 out of 10 votes in West Virginia's Democratic presidential primary.

The inmate, Keith Judd, is serving time at the Beaumont Federal
Correctional Institution in Texas for making threats at the
University of New Mexico in 1999.

Voters in other states showed their displeasure with Obama in
Democratic primaries last March.

In Oklahoma, anti-abortion protestor Randall Terry got 18
percent of the primary vote. A lawyer from Tennessee, John Wolfe,
pulled nearly 18,000 votes in the Louisiana primary.

In Alabama, 18 percent of Democratic voters chose
"uncommitted" in the primary rather than vote for Obama.
