Maybe the chickens are coming home to roost for the GOP in St. Louis County. In my day job, I focus on two subjects: strategic behavioral science and analytics. Really smart people do most of the heavy analytics work. I deal with the human behavior (neuroeconomics, psychology, etc.).

Republican voters expected more. Many St. Louis County Republican voters are baffled by the absence of political ‘guts’ displayed in Jefferson City.
