Brownback isn't the only Republican facing some trouble:A Survey USA/KSN-TV poll released Tuesday evening shows Democrat Paul Davis maintaining a lead over incumbent Gov. Sam Brownback 10 weeks before Election Day.
The poll has it: Davis 48 percent; Brownback 40 percent. Libertarian Keen Umbehr is at 5 percent in the poll.
Survey USA says tax rates are the top issue in the campaign, edging out education funding. But voters who say taxes are the top issue break for Brownback by just 26 points, while those who put education at the top prefer Davis by 43 percent. - Kansas City Star, 8/26/14
Here's what Davis said about the latest poll:In the U.S. Senate race, Survey USA says Independent candidate Greg Orman continues to cause a wrinkle for both three-term Republican incumbent Pat Roberts and Democrat Chad Taylor.Kris Kobach (R. KS)
The poll found Roberts with 37 percent, Taylor at 32 percent and Orman taking 20 percent of the vote.
It's a six-point jump for Orman since the last SurveyUSA poll taken before the August primary.
"The campaign continues to climb in the polls and is the only one in this race with measurable momentum, as we're building support among Republicans, Democrats and Independents from across Kansas, something the other candidates haven't shown they can do," said Jim Jonas, campaign manager for Orman.
Taylor's campaign also released a statement, saying the poll shows they are sustaining momentum against Roberts.
“Put simply, our message of practical, common-sense problem solving is resonating,” Taylor said. “Pat Roberts has spent decades building a network of special-interest friends inside the Beltway and distancing himself from the Kansans he claims to represent."
SurveyUSA also looked at the Kansas Secretary of State's race. Poll results showed it tied at 46 percent each for incumbent Republican Kris Kobach and Democratic challenger Jean Schodorf. - WIBW, 8/26/14
Things are looking good for us here and lets keep up the momentum. Click here to donate to Davis and Jean Schodorf's (D. KS) campaigns:“We have got to be very responsible about the state budget. The governor has put us into a situation that we are going to be in debt to the tune of $1.3 billion if we follow through on his economic experiment and we can’t afford to do that,” said challenger Paul Davis.
“We’ve got to change our economic approach and use proven ways to grow our economy and when we do that we are going to see an economy that is above the national average instead of below where we are at right now. That will allow us to reinvest in our public schools. We know that is going to work well for Kansas. It is going to help us grow as a state,” continued Davis. - KSN, 8/26/14
