The Missouri 2016 Primary season proved to be the year of the nonpolitical outsider candidate. This leaves General Election 2016 even further open for outsider candidates as Independent voters join the melee. Traditional media will not cover the triumph of candidates who are not full time politicians, and not in the establishment in Washington, DC or Jefferson City.
This year it has proven a structural advantage for candidates like Donald Trump and Eric Greitens, each earning first time Missouri statewide victories along with 5th Congressional District outsider Jacob Turk, and 20th legislative district outsider Dan Stacy.
Democrat Presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leads a ticket of long time, professional Liberal Democrats and is predicating her campaign on having the big government experience and temperament to continue expanding Federal and state governments' control of individual lives.
