Poll: Kansas voters undecided heading into November

Capitol Bureau

A new poll suggests the road from the Kansas primary to the general election is still not clear for a lot of likely Kansas voters, with many voters still undecided. 

“I like to vote, because I know that every vote counts,” said Topeka resident Bruce Forinash. 

However, Forinash said he doesn’t know who will get is vote in the primary or general election.

“I haven’t researched in-depth far enough to make a more informed decision,” he explained. 

A new poll conducted by the Kansas City GOP polling firm, Remington Research Group, and shared with the Kansas City Star, shows there’s still a lot of undecided voters.

The Remington Research Group phone survey asked 1,189 likely general election voters about their plans ahead of November.

The poll asked if the general election was held today who would you vote for if the three candidates for Governor were Jeff Colyer, Laura Kelly, and Greg Orman.

Results showed, Colyer with 38 percent of the vote, Kelly with 28 percent, and Orman with 10 percent.

However, 24 percent of those likely voters remain undecided.

The margin of error on the poll was plus or minus 2.85 percent. 

When the same question was asked regarding a match up between Secretary of State Kris Kobach, Kelly, and Orman, Kobach and Kelly were neck and neck.

Results showed Kelly with 36 percent of the vote, Kobach with 35 percent, and Orman with 12 percent, while 17 percent of voters were undecided. 

“I would argue that any Democrat though is not very well known, whoever wins the nomination will be competitive against Kris Kobach just because he is very controversial and will have more of a challenge against Jeff Colyer,” explained political analyst Bob Beatty. 

The poll did not included a scenario with any other major Democratic candidates, including former Ag. Secretary Josh Svaty and former Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer. 

Nor did it include any other Republican candidates including Insurance Commissioner Ken Selzer and former State Senator Jim Barnett. 

The poll also asked if the general election for Governor was held today, how would people vote?

The results showed 47 percent of people would vote Republican, 35 percent would vote Democrat, and 8 percent would vote for an Independent, while 10 percent were undecided.
