I won't debate with you because there are no facts to substantiate your position as I have seen previously.

FTR, Kansas City and its environs are home to many who do not think like "lovekcmo" and "AmericnGrl."

And you believe Trump? He would sale you down the river faster than Hillary would any day.

I think Olathe and Gardner are the reasons that people view JoCo as the same crazy republican hell that parts of the state of Kansas (and Missouri) can be. Olathe will likely always be more rural minded in nature do to the fact that it was originally the small rural county seat instead of a suburb of KC. I don't think the extreme conserves occupy the rest of the county like they do the Olathe and Gardner areas. One also has to remember that Kansas did NOT vote for Trump in the primaries and his presence in Wichita was not well received. I know several very nice people who are sadly blindly voting for that vile man just because they don't like Hillary and know nothing about either candidate as they didn't want either of them to rise to the top, but besides their political ignorance, they're nice and normal people.

This woman is Vicki Sciolaro, chairwoman of the 3rd Congressional District for the Kansas Republican Party. According to the article, she's from JoCo...

I find it ironic that Trump supporters main argument is that Hillary lies. I'm not saying she has not lied, but have these people even looked at all the lies Trump has told?

Trump can't even get along with the republican party, let alone the rest of the elected government or world. The only people he gets along with are those that slave to him and he will throw those people under the bus in a heartbeat if they don't bow down to his every move.

Both of these candidates totally suck. But Trump is literally a huge risk and danger to the country IMO. I'm not sure what good will come out of having a lose cannon that wants to be a dictator as the president.

Both of them will be constantly ridiculed and have the constant threat of impeachments etc. We have had decades to study Clinton's baggage, I have a feeling we are just getting started with digging up baggage on Trump.

And I find metro Kansas City to be "average" for a large metro area. It's not very conservative at all. Some of the outer suburbs can be quite conservative (true for any metro), but for the most part, metro KC is pretty middle of the road leaning liberal. The urban core is obviously very liberal. KC is nothing like what you will find in large cities in the south or rural areas in the midwest. That why I started this thread. This lady is embarrassing. Her accent sounds like she is from Oklahoma or something. Stop electing people like this.

The reason it says "Kansas City, MO" in the upper corner, is because the studio where she did the interview is in Kansas City, Missouri. When national news organizations need to do a live fiber/satellite interview with someone, they have to go to one of the local TV stations, or a studio which I believe is located in the Crossroads District. Based on the background, I think she was in that studio.

I live in Phoenix where a woman like this was the former governor of Arizona.

She didn't represent the vast majority of the populace either (Arizona cities are liberal leaning).

Older people as well as people who are afraid of change tend to like people like this as they are folksy and they seem to be more "down home" and "relate-able" than many politicians even if what they say and their viewpoint of the world is ridiculous.
