A question has come up that I cannot answer. I know Missouri is now labeled as Republican. I only remember KC as Democratic but that was long ago. How would the KC area be labeled now?

Thanks. Hazel

The urban core is Democrat-wealthy whites and poor people of colors; the suburbs with working class folks is Republican.

Incorrect, Missouri working and middle class in Metro KC (particularly built out urban/suburban areas) are about evenly split depending on the area- particularly on economic issues as Missouri is not a right to work state. The newer far flung suburbs and exurbs are more conservative politically, like many other metros in the US- although some are more socially conservative.

I don't think there's anything incorrect. Missouri may not be a right to work state, but the working class residents of the built out urban or close in suburbs seem to lean more right, probably for various reasons, and this can be seen by political signs in yards of Raytown, Independence, etc. It does seem to hold true that the wealthier the whites are the more Democrat leaning they are. Just an observation of course.
