Vice President Biden said he doesn't blame West Virginia voters for voting for Texas inmate Keith Judd in the Democratic primary instead of President Obama.

After a local reporter from WTOV-TV, asked Biden about the embarassing vote, Biden answered that voters have "been through hell" with heavy unemployment and a loss in jobs from the "God-awful recession."

"I don't blame people. They're frustrated. They're angry," he concluded.

Judd won 41 percent of the Democratic vote in West Virginia in the primary that was held on May 8.
