As a scholar of labour issues and someone with an interest in both real world and fictional politics, what are your thoughts on the people of Missouri and Arkansas electing Republicans but also voting for a significant increase to the minimum wage in their respective states?

I think it’s a good data point for the idea that Americans are philosophically conservative but operationally liberal, and the idea that voters are rarely ideologically consistent, and the idea that it’s hard to get people to connect policies to political parties.
