Allen West cannot be President of the United States

Shawn McElhinney thinks anyone who is convinced that Allen West has a ghosts of a chance of winning the presidency should stop sniffing paint thinner immediately! 
Someone who cannot win re-election in a favourably gerrymandered congressional district cannot win statewide let alone nationwide. 
He lost a district that Mitt Romney won, a district with a Cook PVI of R+3. What that means is the district runs about three points ahead of the national candidate in terms of its political alignment and despite that advantage, West STILL lost.
