TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! THREE-WAY KANSAS CITY MAYOR CONTEST AMONGST COUNCIL MEMBERS TAYLOR, JUSTUS & LUCAS ACCORDING TO LATEST DEMOCRATIC PARTY INSIDER POLLING!!!



New polling has Kansas City insiders picking sides and switching allegiances quickly in order to stay ahead of a crowded field where anything could happen.

Nevertheless . . .

NEW DEMOCRATIC PARTY NUMBERS CLAIM COUNCIL MEMBERS SCOTT TAYLOR IS TIED WITH JOLIE JUSTUS FOR THE LEAD IN THE RACE WHILST COUNCILMAN QUINTON LUCAS RUNS A CLOSE THIRD!!!

Let's do the math here . . . These numbers are pushed by the DNC so obviously party connections are the most important thing they're looking to reinforce. Still the data sheds light on Council Dude Scott Taylor's inroads with Beltway insiders and D.C. backup that put him ahead of most of the other contenders.

Of special note . . .

Council dude Scott Wager hasn't risen above 6% in any poll we've seen and that's disappointing given his Northland roots. Everybody else has faded into the background according to the consultant class and their flash poll data.

As always, we advise locals to take all of this polling with a grain of salt but so many political experts are pushing these numbers . . . They're worth mentioning for this morning. FIRST on TKC.

Developing . . .

What's the over/under on Councilmember Jolie Justus?

Forget it, I don't want to know and I'm sorry I asked.

All good Democrats to be sure. Did they do a good job in the city council. 2 out of three of them only wanted one term. That says a lot.

Jolie is making a comeback. Good for her. I think people want to make history and elect the first LGBT mayor in Kansas City's history. It's our chance to show the world that we are standing up against hatred!

Anonymous said...

Wrong, Angela. Electing Jolie would mean we are standing up against honesty and competence. Stop being so stupid.

Clay is more honest.

The majority of the people probably do not care if their mayor takes it standing up, laying down or on all fours as long as the mayor is competent, not in the developers back pocket, honest, transparent and works for the people in making the town better.

Please stop posting such nonsense, Angela. Everyone knows what Jolie is.

If you like high taxes, one of the highest crime rates in the country, poor schools, little to no transparency, and watching your hard earned tax dollars go towards corporate welfare, vote Jolie Justus for Mayor! Same can likely be said of most of the candidates running for Mayor actually.

Angela K...Enough with your hatred act! Stop shoving your perverse ways down our throat. If you want to be gay that's your choice, but stop trying to change laws that protect your kind against people who don't agree with you! No I won't bake you a wedding cake!

ENOUGH WITH YOUR HATE!

Yay, DNC connections. That means K.C. will become even a bigger sanctuary city. Can't wait for higher taxes, more crime, more racism from the liberals, more LGBT parades, poor education, etc. When democrats run your city..

It's a DNC poll. Doesn't mean shit.

Anyone who votes for these 3 is an idiot. Justus and Lucas are self-serving dunderheads. Taylor may have good intentions, but has made no discernible impact. The only candidate that makes sense is Wagner, but he sucks at marketing. It's sad.

People who read this will see:
Oh another white guy, can't tell them apart. (Split that vote 4 ways)

Oh yeah that lesbian, she's been around awhile and seems alright. (Enough to tread water above the white guys?)

Oh yeah Quinton, he's our new mayor right? (Vegas favors Lucas.)

Don't forget this poll was of "Democrat Insiders", the same people who nominated the only Candidate that Donald Trump could possibly have beaten in 2016.

A poll of "Residents" or of "Likely Voters" would have shown Clay Chastain in first, second and third places.

Poll was taken by CNN.

Angela k then she can just make input on lgbt issues.

Hate to say it but Clay is the best choice. Everyone else will just add to the dysfunction and destroy our city. there's no way anyone can vote for someone who wants to rename the paseo

Gopher Casey said...

Wtf kind of name is "Quinton" anyway? Maybe it should be QUITon as in, quit drinking, quit the booger sugar, and quit politics.

7:09 the problem with your opinion is being queer has nothing to do with how well you can do the job. Voting for someone because they are homosexual is like voting for someone because they are left handed. Then announce “look! We voted for the first left handed mayor”. Wow that’s soooo awesome guys.


The KCMO Democrats have done enough financial damage to the city. Time for change. It’s really sad when a city has to resort to massive corporate welfare at the expense of its citizens. We have an airport debacle and a per capita murder rate higher than Chicago. KCMO public schools have democrat written all over it and look what they are producing.

Too bad Teresa Loar is not running for mayor. Her support for dogs and cats would really make her campaign take off. Everyone likes dogs and cats! It’s the only platform plank that would guarantee she would be on the right side of at least one issue. #CatHoardersForTeresa

Once again the 85% of the metro residents who made the very smart decision NOT to live in KCMO congratulate themselves on their intelligent choice and its endless rewards.
And even better, those folks who don't even work in KCMO don't have to contribute to the huge slush fund, otherwise known as the city general fund, by paying a ridiculous and highly regressive earnings tax.
The KC area has lots of great reasons to live here, but NONE of them have anything at all to do with the almost comically dysfunctional, incompetent, irresponsible, and totally ineffectual KCMO city government.
These three clowns are the mayoral candidate leaders?
Really?
It never changes.

Teresa Loar needs to buy a lint brush and use it before she leaves her house. She arrives at city hall covered in cat hair.

@12:54, that is the only sign you have been able to understand - the others, the ones you call "them ones with that there writin' stuff on them", are the ones @12:35 was referring to.

Clay is the guy who can win this election and he would be just want the city needs.

^^^^^ No Clay. NO. And if you're going to spam Tony's blog. You need to start paying him. Or else we're just going to keep calling you out for what a horny mofo you are and how you were scoping out hot poon while getting petitions according to your notes. For shame.
