With both Kansas and Missouri consistently voting Republican in presidential elections for decades — Kansas last voted for a Democrat in 1964 and Missouri in 1976 — campaigns generally shy away from investing significant resources in the Kansas City market. That means that Johnson Countians are far less likely to encounter the presidential political ads that take over the airwaves in swing states like Ohio and North Carolina.
Do you wish more presidential campaign ads were broadcast in the Kansas City market? Or are you happy to avoid the political rancor?
