Per previous post, is inline with KC growing with millennials (well 30+) and perhaps KC conservatives/GOP are leaving or dying off.
We've seen this in other statistics, each generation is down a little more in Republican identity.

So far the idea that people grow more conservative in age isn't holding up. It's easier to argue the opposite is true.

^In some metros, conservative did go up, like MSP area. Not surprising that retirement metros like Tampa had a big jump in conservative.

I think the ways one becomes more conservative as one ages might have changed. I think it may be true that one becomes increasingly fiscally conservative as one ages. However, I think we are seeing a hybrid of people becoming fiscally conservative, and still remain liberal on many social issues. People move around a lot more now and throughout their lives, so they are exposed to a lot more different living situations, and types of people than past generations.

Plus the republican party has changed drastically in the last 10-20 years. A moderate conservative in Reagan's era was most likely a republican. A moderate conservative today may have second thoughts about supporting a party that is as extreme as the republican party has become.

The vast majority of America is moderate. We’ve never been more ripe for a centrist third party, but the two powerful ones we have now would both destroy it from either side.

Is curious though that this claims KC metro dropped significantly more in GOP identity (6 points since 2013) than other markets. KC is lower than even MSP area in GOP identity now and much lower than STL. KC ranks 6th in Independent identity according to...

What does being a republican have to do with being fiscally conservative. Every time the GOP is in power our deficit goes through the roof.

The Wall Street Journal includes Missouri and Kansas City on its' most intriguing travel destinations for 2019.

The 10 Most Intriguing Travel Destinations for 2019; Here, our top destinations worth zeroing in on in 2019, from an Argentinian wine region to--wait for it--Missouri

On the list are:

1. Salta, Argentina
2. Seattle
3. Tel Aviv
4. Kyoto
5. The Maldives
6. Missouri
It's not all pigs and brick. St. Louis, a fast-growing tech hub, is actively expanding its network of greenways that connect rivers and parks, including the revitalized Gateway Arch National Park. And part of the historic garment district's renaissance, the 142-room Last Hotel, housed in the circa-1909 International Shoe Company headquarters, will open in the spring. The 21c Museum Hotel brand chose Kansas City for its latest endeavor, piggybacking on the river city's percolating art scene (from $185 a night, 21cmuseumhotels.com ). About midway between the two urban centers, in the college town of Fulton--where Winston Churchill gave his Iron Curtain speech--sits the National Churchill Museum. Starting in January, the museum kicks off its 50th anniversary with a year-long program of cultural events (nationalchurchillmuseum.org ).
7. Namibia
8. Tunisia
9. Warsaw
10. Nassau, the Bahamas

I guess we have been forgiven for Ferguson.
