TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! INSIDER MARKET RESEARCH DATA SEYZ MOST KANSAS CITY ROYALS AND CHIEFS FANBOYS ALSO LOVE PREZ-ELECT TRUMP!!!
There's a myth that professional sport teams unite cities and forge bonds of friendship beyond demographic lines through the benefit of competition. In Kansas City, nothing could be further from the truth. The Chiefs and Royals are mostly a pastime for affluent white people who skew overwhelmingly Republican and in support of Donald Trump.
The recent 2016 World Series elicited some complaints from Kansas City residents about adverts ruining their baseball watching experience but the demographics and market analysis behind advertiser support was solid.
Let's drill down further . . .
- Kansas City Royals and Chiefs games are exceptionally costly compared with local entertainment options. Recent winning streaks have drive up prices even further. The prices are mostly paid by older, middle-class white mailes. Even a cursory look in the stands reveals those pro-sports patrons are all white guys. Fact check: Whites elected Trump.
- Both educated and not . . . White men comprise the main demographic of season ticket holders and attendees at Kauffman Stadium. Some call the election of Trump: The "Revenge of White Men."
- Suburban residents of the Greater Kansas City metro area comprise an important percentage of Royals and Chiefs fans. Check the exit polling data and notice that suburban areas of Kansas City mostly voted for Trump in terms of the 30-something to middle-aged white male demographic that we identified previously both educated and otherwise.
Some of these stats and market research data were shared with Jackson County officials and both teams early this morning. Thanks to our blog community the data was forwarded our way and into the filthy hands of our blog community.
Conclusion . . .
KANSAS CITY ROYALS AND CHIEFS FANS ARE MOSTLY COMPRISED OF PROUD TRUMP SUPPORTERS!!!
Moreover, even while acknowledging that market research is not an exact science . . .
EVEN CURSORY COMPARATIVE DEMOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS LEADS MARKETERS TO CORRELATE CHEFS AND ROYALS FANS WITH TRUMP SUPPORTERS!!!
Fact is, and like it or not, over and over we've hoped that so many locals would realize the reality of their living situation and this bit of market research and analysis should help that effort.
We also want to thank EL BRYAN for that kick-ass lead photo illustration which provides more perspective on Kansas City Royals Glory days given the current election results.
