KANSAS CITY NOVEMBER 2019 UNHAPPY ELECTION RETURNS: LOW TURNOUT AS AMERICAN DEMOCRACY FADES!!!
Before the crying starts, here's what we know for sure . . .
KANSAS CITY VOTERS MOSTLY IGNORED TODAY'S ELECTION AND OFFERED A DIVISIVE PREVIEW OF ELECTION 2020!!!
Stopped by a few Midtown polling places and I'm pretty sure there were tumbleweeds rolling across the parking lot during the midday which not only speaks to this town's "vibrancy" but also the overall interest in issues the Parks Board FAILED to properly address.
538: "The 2019 elections allow us to take the country’s temperature ahead of the knock-down, drag-out clash of 2020"
NYMag: "Off-year elections, like special elections, mostly affect the scattered populations of people directly affected. But they are also interpreted — and over-interpreted — as national political harbingers. At a time when the national political landscape is dominated by the outsized personality of Donald J. Trump, odds are the elections of November 5 will be anxiously examined for what they mean for the prospect of ejecting Trump from office in 2020 or giving him four more harrowing years."
Again, we drill down to the local elections for a closer look . . .
