TKC EXCLUSIVE FRIDAY FACT CHECK!!! POLLING PREVIEW REVEALS COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS NO LONGER FRONT RUNNER FOR KANSAS CITY MAYOR!!!
The Kansas City Mayoral polling game is underway as consultant hacks attempt to sway local options by way of robo-call questions and focus group smear campaigns.
Now, given that local political coverage is mostly just a few newspaper hacks playing favorites, KCMO polling has been mostly an exercise in propaganda for the past 5 years and is mostly FAKE NEWS. So take all of the "data" with a grain of salt given that newsies now mostly reveal the numbers AFTER a contest is complete . . .Still, the polling we're talking about represents a concerted effort to deliver a message and therefore it's still worth a glimpse if only to better understand the rhetorical gambit.
And so, this tidbit still is worth a glimpse given that the opposition has gone to a great deal of trouble to make a former front runner look bad . . .
KICK-ASS KANSAS CITY INSIDERS HINT THAT NEW POLLING IN THE RACE FOR MAYOR IS BAD NEWS FOR THE LADY WHO COULD BECOME THE 1ST OPENLY LGBT HONCHO OF THIS COWTOWN!!!
Here's the word . . .
"I'll start with the good news. She has Midtown locked up and her popularity extends further into the corridor than we would have suspected, almost reaching the into the 6th District. But she's virtually unknown across the bridge and on the East side there is downright hostility toward her that radiates into the eastern corridor of her own district and among the most frequent voters in Northeast . . ."
Up to this point we suspect her hop-in-and-out of the contest was her biggest hurdle.
But here's what a quick look at the numbers tells insiders who then tell us . . .
THE STALLED NEW AIRPORT AND COSTS PASSED ON TO TAXPAYERS BY WAY OF BROKEN PROMISES HURTS JOLIE JUSTUS MORE THAN ANY OTHER CANDIDATE!!!
As chair of the airport committee, she absolutely owns the problem which has a greater downside than up now that the deal is grinding to a halt.
Another fun fact . . .
IN THE LATEST POLLING COUNCIL LADY JOLIE JUSTUS TAKES HEAT FOR CRIME MORE SO THAN COUNCIL MEMBERS FROM FAR MORE VIOLENT DISTRICTS!!!
Reality . . .
Midtown is pissed about increased burglaries, car crime and party district violence. This seems kind of unfair given that the 3rd District suffers far more murder than the 4th BUT her role in talking about crime over the past few years has put her on the front lines of this issue among those most likely to cast a ballot.
And so . . .
Over the course of 4 years at City Hall Council Lady Jolie transitioned from a mostly beloved legislator to an embattled politico with a municipal record that invites some tough questions.
To be fair, she still has many true believers supporting her who rank among the local elite along with a bevy journalists hack far more willing to push her candidacy than any other candidate in the name of a "progressive" allegiance.
And so, because Team Jolie knows these numbers and talking points are out there as well . . . They have relaunched her camapign video, cut out any mention of Jason Kander and hope that an upbeat violin track will help rebrand this former KCMO front runner . . .
