Blankenship is billing himself as a leader in coal mining safety.

I think Manchin could break 60 against Blankenship.
Are you kidding? He could break 70 against Blankenship.

Why would anyone vote for Don Blankenship? This doesn't seem realistic

Regardless of WV's current political climate, it is a closed primary state, making this especially surprising.  WV's GOP primary electorate is FAR from the same group that voted for Trump in 2016, and they have traditionally supported more establishment-minded candidates.

>Trump gets over 2/3 in WV Republican Primary
>apparently this is far from that same group

Per usual, I have no idea what point you're babbling about.  A lot of states' GOP primary voters supported Trump while otherwise supporting more establishment-minded candidates ... surely you can wrap your head around that.

Called it. I told you guys that all Blankenship had to do to transition from reviled to popular among Racist WV Hicks was to talk about how much he hates Muslim Obama and Crooked Hillary and how much he loves Trump. LOL, WV is so predictable.

And anyone saying he can't win the general clearly hasn't learned the lessons of 2016, particularly considering this is a state where the pussygrabber got nearly 70% of the vote.

But to be fair, the primary was basically over when WV voted.  He only would have gotten, eh, mid 60s in a competitive election.

Dude, give it up okay. First of all, like you said, WV is semi-closed, so no democrats could vote(As in, people who are dems in name only.) So while it may have been more establishment in the past, it's now starting to consist of a lot of ex-democrats.
