Yeah, West Virginia's Republican trend is due to Obama. Right.

Looks like the Democrats can't claim racism with WV. The trend towards the GOP technically began with Bush in 2000 anyway.

For comparison, Romney won West Virginia 62-35.

It's not really a big deal. But if she's doing just as bad as Obama in West Virginia, that isn't good news for her in Appalachian swing states, like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina.

A fairly common WV pollster. I don't know much about them but they did get the 2010 senate race right. I'm having trouble finding polling from more recent races.

Regardless, I think we all knew WV wasn't going to be close.

If WV is like this, I doubt AR will be competitive either.

AR has just completely transitioned, like WV has, to be more like TN, KY than OH or PA.

Well, pbrower2a still predicts a Clinton win in WV, KY and KS.
And no, "we" all didn't know that it wasn't going to be close.

In Atlas's defense, one of those threads was from 2012 and the one with the poll shows the Dems getting destroyed in these three.

This was a DUKAKIS state, making those numbers even more embarrassing. I honestly think she'll do worse than Obama in WV.

It began much earlier than that. I'm almost certain that it began in 1992.

Coal loving, EPA hating white people without a future basically. A huge percentage of them are seniors as well. Pretty much noone (young) is voluntarily moving to West Virginia these days, that should tell you all you'd need to know. It's the least desireable of the 50 US states these days. Even Mississippi is now more attractive for young people, and so is North Dakota (obviously, due to the oil rush).

I think he's asking about the pollster.

West Virginia's been long gone for Democrats since 2004. Even if Hillary doesn't lose it by 32 percent, I doubt she'll come within 20 points of the Republican. I've always thought that these "Candidate X is a good/bad fit for State Y" arguments are overly simplistic. Hillary won't significantly overperform Obama in West Virginia, Arkansas, or Kentucky (unless she wins in a landslide), and she won't significantly underperform Obama in Colorado (unless she loses badly.)

West Virginia polls generally overpoll Democrats, so this is even worse for Hillary.

Depends on your definition of significant. The state going from a 5 point D win to a 2 or 3 point R win, which I think is a reasonable CO result even if Hillary wins nationwide, seems pretty significant to me.

Except that I highly doubt that will happen. If Hillary wins by about the same margin as Obama '12, I think she wins Colorado by about the same amount as Obama. Maybe a bit less (2 or 3), maybe even a bit more, due to demographic changes. My point was that I don't buy the whole "Hillary is a good/bad fit for xxxx", and this applies to Colorado as well.

As muon pointed out in another thread, the movement of the Dems from a "labor" agenda to an "urban" agenda, which includes environmentalism and gun control emphases, have resulted in Democrats' decimation in the Mountain State (and improved prospects in VA/CO).

As a Democrat, I would rather have Virginia than West Virginia on my side.

WV -- aging population, unattractive economic conditions, dying industries, and most likely a shrinking population.

Oh my god. This state may be even more Republican than Oklahoma! At this rate, I consider Manchin vulnerable, especially if a Democrat wins in 2016.

But I would question the liability of this poll. It had Sanders and Clinton close.
