I know many have stopped paying attention and are planning their summer vacations. But West Virginia had a Democratic primary and the exit polls continue the trend we’ve seen nearly everywhere – 50 plus voters are half of those who are showing up. In West Virginia, exit polls have 55 percent of the electorate over
55 50 and 63 percent citing the economy as a key issue. A new question also centers on the recession and 89 percent of those who showed up yesterday said they are impacted by the economic downturn.
Sooo… I hear two things here – it’s the economy and it’s 50 plus voters will show up in the fall.
