TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS SUFFERS JOB APPROVAL DECLINE AFTER VIOLENT PLAZA PROTEST AND WORSENING HOMICIDE SPIKE!!!
Kneeling with protesters, love letters to the po-po and begging for anti-crime help from Missouri Republicans has eroded voter confidence in Kansas City Mayor Quinton Lucas.
To wit . . .
ACCORDING TO AN EXCLUSIVE & KICK-ASS SURVEY OF TKC READERS, THE JOB APPROVAL OF MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS DECLINED 50% OVER RECENT WEEKS!!!
To be fair, let's remember that even this community of skeptics seemed to approve of Mayor Lucas and his quick reaction to the deadly coronavirus pandemic. The young mayor shut down events, bars & local biz in a controversial move that likely helped to save lives.
However . . .
In a survey of over 1000 reader comments and e-mails sent to about two dozen regular readers . . . The nicest quote we could find was: "He's doing the best he can."
Meanwhile, readers of this blog have consistently objected to double-dealing against police and protesters in addition to a very obvious push for publicity from national news outlets.
Even as Kansas City preps to hit 100 murders in the very near future . . . "Mayor Q" attempted to refocus the public on the half-billion dollar deal awarded to QB Patrick Mahomes.
Whilst mainstream media coverage can often help earn attention and assistance for local leaders and their cities, a recent media blitz from the Mayor Quinton Lucas was mostly focused on highlighting the deplorable racism of a handful of constituents.
And all of this leads us to a quick breakdown of the numbers with a bit of help from tech friends and longtime readers of this blog.
- Over the past month 75% of comments regarding Mayor Lucas have been negative vs. a 24% negativity rating betwixt March/April.
- Negative e-mails sent to TKC regarding Mayor Lucas have spiked 300% vs. March when a few readers actually defended his shut down actions.
- Defense of Mayor Lucas and public mask requirements to curb coronavirus spread is split 50/50 among TKC readers according to both comments & reader e-mails.
- On the topic of anti-crime effectiveness, nearly 81% of TKC readers disapprove of tactics from Mayor Lucas. Again, to be fair, local anti-crime groups and Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker have a much higher ranking.
Accordingly . . .
GIVEN THE HISTORICALLY LOW APPROVAL RATING OF MAYOR QUINTON LUCAS FROM CRANKY TKC READERS . . . HOW WOULD YOU RATE HIS JOB PERFORMANCE?!?
