No Democrat Has Won Presidency Without Winning West Virginia Since 1916

From Financial Times on May 13, 2008: "No Democrat has been elected to the White House without carrying West Virginia since 1916, yet Mr Obama appears to have little chance of winning there in November. Recent opinion polls indicate that Mrs Clinton would narrowly beat Mr McCain in the state but Mr Obama would lose by nearly 20 percentage points."
