Survey: Kansas' Far Right Experiment Is a Failure with Voters

Gee, radically cut state revenue and the state budget and state services collapse. No sparkles, no cotton candy, and no rainbow unicorns.

Don't worry! Billionaires in Kansas and Missouri have a plan (yeah, right).

SurveyUSA conducted poll in Kansas August 20th through the 23rd of 560 likely general election voters (margin of error ±4.2%):

If the election for Kansas Governor were today, which ticket would you vote for? The Republican ticket of Sam Brownback and Jeff Colyer? The Democratic ticket of Paul Davis and Jill Docking? Or the Libertarian ticket of Keen Umbehr and Josh Umbehr?

Brownback/Colyer (R) - 40%
Davis/Docking (D) - 48%
Umbehr/Umbehr (L) - 5%
Undecided - 6%

Brownback/Colyer (R) - 43%
Davis/Docking (D) - 44%
Umbehr/Umbehr (L) - 7%
Undecided - 6%

Brownback/Colyer (R) - 38%
Davis/Docking (D) - 53%
Umbehr/Umbehr (L) - 3%
Undecided - 6%

Female/Male in the sample: 51/49%. Party affiliation: 46% republican, 32% Democrat, 18% Independent.

And there's this in the U.S. Senate race:

If the election for United States Senator from Kansas were today, who would you vote for? Republican Pat Roberts? Democrat Chad Taylor? Libertarian Randall Batson? Or Independent Greg Orman?

Pat Roberts (R) - 37%
Chad Taylor (D) - 32%
Randall Batson (L) - 4%
Greg Orman (I) - 20%
Undecided - 6%

Which one of these issues will be most important in your vote for United States Senator? Obamacare? Immigration? Jobs and the economy? Or something else?

Obamacare - 22%
Immigration - 22%
Jobs And The Economy - 41%
Something Else - 12%
Not Sure - 4%

Interestingly, there's not any appreciable gender gap in the Senate race. We've been seeing a lot of ads for the Independent candidate (we're in the Kansas City media market - Johnson County, Kansas, a population center, is, too). Jobs, jobs, jobs, and jobs.

Even the Prince of the wingnut right's Voter ID is in a dead heat:

If the election for Kansas Secretary of State were today, who would you vote for? (candidate names rotated) Republican Kris Kobach? Or Democrat Jean Schodorf?

Kris Kobach (R) - 46%
Jean Schodorf (D) - 46%

Undecided - 8%

Unfortunately for Missouri, the problems in Kansas will hold no sway with Missouri's far-right Republicans. They'll do the same thing there, because right wingnut dogma can't fail, it can only be failed.
