Following up on the last posts on West Virginia and Kentucky, I would note that Obama’s level of support in West Virginia today (according to ARG) is essentially identical to his level of support in March 2007.  A little over one fifth of West Virginia Democrats backed Obama then, and the same people still back him.  He has gained no ground in 14 months.  ARG’s crosstabs have Obama losing the white vote by 50 points.
