Post-Midterm Election Reactions

The day after the 2018 midterm elections, two political science professors join us to talk about who turned out to vote, and how that affected the outcomes. The discussion includes high turnout for young voters, changing rural demographics in Kansas and Missouri, the importance of identity for voters and candidates, and whether Kansas just turned blue as some are claiming, or not. 

  • Elizabeth Vonnahme, associate professor and department chair, UMKC Department of Political Science
  • Patrick Miller, assistant professor, KU Department of Political Science
