TKC BREAKING NEWS!!! KANSAS CITY HOMEOWNERS RANK POTHOLES AS TOP CONCERN FOR ELECTION 2019!!!
Push polling hype is hitting Kansas City voters hard as silly season is now in full swing.
However, an interesting factoid has emerged which contradicts the political wisdom of pundits attempting to influence the local elections.
The word . . .
ANGER OVER THE KANSAS CITY POTHOLE CRISIS OUTRANKS BOTH KCI FEAR & AFFORDABLE HOUSING IN THE LATEST BIT OF VOTER POLLING DATA!!!
We'll have more on this but whilst Steve Miller and his Northland friends are busy bad-mouthing the competition, this not-so-fun fact is floating around:
Among voters over 35 who own their own home and have voted in the last two elections. Top issues they want candidate to address are:
1. Potholes (31%)
2. KCI (27%)
3. Crime (19%)
Quickie fact check . . . It's not surprising that people who owned their own home didn't rank affordable housing as a top 5 concern . . . Even though they should probably be worried about the rent & rising taxes as well.
What have we learned???
Newsies getting their data from consultants are simply parroting consulting talking points. Meanwhile, amid social justice clamoring, local "stakeholders" who are actually invested in the community are more worried about pragmatic concerns.
