Fewer than half of West Virginians believe the 2020 presidential election was legitimate and accurate. That's according to the latest MetroNews West Virginia Poll, which surveyed 400 registered voters August 20-25. Forty-four percent of respondents said the election result was determined legitimately. Forty-three percent said the result was the result of voting fraud and election rigging. And 14 percent said they aren't sure. Rex Repass "Talk about a divided point of view. You see that here," said Rex Repass, president of Research America, which conducts the West Virginia Poll. He said that reflects, "very strong opinions influenced by politically-hot rhetoric, and West Virginians are split right down the middle over whether we had a fair election in 2020."

West Virginia is a behavioral sink. It may well become the first American failed State.

A conservative friend who lived much of his live in central PA and near Pittsburgh is moving from Michigan to Kentucky. I asked him why he didn't consider West Virginia. He said outside of that thin little spur between PA and OH that it was the most backward place he's ever been. Keep in mind he's moving to rural Kentucky (Half hour from Lexington) where he has to have city water because the coal mines mucked up the well water for the state...

He ruled out Eastern Kentucky because it was just like West Virginia and I do quote "It's down right scary when you visit a town and nobody seems to have all their teeth and gives you weird looks. I could hear banjos..."

Still get uneasy remembering a slow drive through Paw Paw, WV a few years back. "Gothic" would just be a starter.

How do you know the toothbrush was invented in West Virginia?

If it were invented anywhere else it would be called the teethbrush.
