How do West Virginians think when they choose Joe Manchin?

How is it that the people of West Virginia would elect someone like Joe Manchin to represent them in the U.S. Senate when he performs so poorly?

One reason might be that the people in West Virginia aren't that well educated. They are 45th in the nation in the quality of their education.

West Virginia ranks 41 in Pre-K through 12 and 47th in higher education.

People who make poor choices in their governmental representatives will receive poor service when it comes to their state resources for creating a quality life.

Our founding fathers knew that democracy took well educated votes if democracy is to work as a form of government of the people, for the people, and by the people. There could be no better example of the poor consequences in election decision making than in West Virginia.

The sad thing about West Virginians making such a poor choice for a Senator is that his performance not only affects the residents of West Virginia but the whole country.

How could citizens in better educated states help the voters in lower educated states choose better representatives to national office?
