TKC SUNDAY SPECIAL!!! INSIDER POLLING REVEALS KANSAS CITY VOTERS REJECT NOVEMBER NEW AIRPORT PROPOSAL!!!
Despite half a million bucks in campaign coffers already AND the support of almost every big biz and top politico in town, Kansas City voters are largely unconvinced and mostly against the new airport.
Now, in their RIGGED phone polling, even promoters of the new airport claim only a 50/50 margin at this point but the reality is that those numbers are much lower when they include likely voters from the GO Bond election.
Here's the news . . .
65% OF LIKELY KANSAS CITY VOTERS WHO CAST THEIR BALLOTS IN THE GO BOND ELECTION EARLIER THIS YEAR ARE NOW AGAINST THE NEW AIRPORT PROPOSAL!!!
More info from this polling data set that was concluded in early September . . .
- 1/2 of likely voters don't believe claims that the airport won't cost Kansas City taxpayers.
- 3/4th of likely voters believe a new airport will increase ticket prices.
- 9/10 likely voters agree that the airport will cost more than initial projections.
These polling numbers are the last testament of THE CAMBRIDGE GROUP and part of consultant Steve Glorioso's legacy (R.I.P.) in local politics working under the name of an old subcontractor shell company that Pat Gray (Steve's legendary friend and biz partner) contracted.
We suspect this data set might have been part of a pitch for Mr. Glorioso to win part of airport consulting money for the November airport push before his untimely death in late September.
The exit polling and individual voter surveys are likely more accurate than robo-calls that now rule local politics and offer a peek into the mindset of voters who actually go to the ballots.
And so . . .
A bit of Sunday hope is that BIG MONEY from Kansas City corporations has yet to move the dial in terms of opinion and voter confidence in claims about the new airport remain sketchy at best.
