He did poorly in the coal mining counties and did well in the rest of Appalachia in SE Ohio and all of Appalachia in general.

I have noticed a discrepancy in this election between the culturally and economically similar states of Kentucky and West Virginia, which I have generally attributed to a potential “favorite son” vote in areas surrounding Southern Indiana for his vice-Presidential nominee Dan Quayle. This favorite son theory is supported by Bush doing less well in the southeasterly coal counties.
