The Way the Kansas Natives Have Failed to Elect Good Leaders

In his book, “What’s the Matter with Kansas?”, Thomas Frank argues that the native citizens of his home state have failed to elect leaders who can bring about quality governance. He attributes this failure to three main factors: lack of understanding of how the state government works, voting against their own interests, and following the false promises of conservative politicians. While Frank’s analysis is specific to Kansas, it is also relevant to other states in the US where similar dynamics are at play.
