Description

Vice President Joe Biden said that it was understandable why an imprisoned felon got 40% of the vote in the West Virginia Democratic primary two weeks ago. People are "frustrated" and "angry," he said. And apparently, West Virginians aren't alone. The Republican primaries held Tuesday in Arkansas and Kentucky were won handily by Mitt Romney, as expected. But they were less significant because he's the presumed GOP presidential nominee and can't seal the nomination until the Texas primary on May 29. Yesterday's results will have no bearing on whether the president will be his party's nominee, either, but they do reveal how unpopular Mr. Obama remains in the South.
