Despite Kansas City Rallying For Hometown Hero Jason Kander: Critics Skeptical Missouri Will Host Two Decidedly Liberal Senators



Quick background for tonight . . .

Missouri's race is really about Senate control with very little impact for voters at the grassroots level.

A few fun items to ponder for voters who really want to drill down . . .

- The Vote From The Black Community Is Critical . . . Opposition to Blunt isn't very adamant and neither is support for Kander. This community skipping the vote will change the dynamic of the elections and it's a shame this community is being ignored. Not even Prez Obama is sure Black voters will turn out this election

- Are voters convinced MO SecState Kander is a "Blue Dog" Democrat . . . The claim would be easier to support if the wasn't a Hillary Clinton campaign chair.

- Sen. Roy Blunt's old school reputation hurts him . . . He really is the Insider establishment candidate here . . . But the mistake is thinking that Missouri Trump voters are change agents and not just typical reactionaries against Hillary.

Not even close. Blunt +5. He's more popular among Republicans than Brownback or Sen. Roberts in Kansas. Lots of Republicans in Missouri.

The DNC should be putting it's money elsewhere. Kansas City and St. Louis don't matter. The rest of this backwards state won't abandon the Blunt name in sufficient numbers to swing the election.

Kander will keep it close but a lot of people are staying away from this election.

Blunt by 7. 8:28pm is right. If you win rural Mo, you win, MO. Kansas City and STL does not win you a state wide election, Springfield does.

the old fart will win.

he's a comfortable old pair of shoes and whether they have holes in the soles is secondary: we're not throwing him out.
