 Kansas Guv Kelly(D) 41% Kobach(R) 41%  (TCTC)


Normally, they are pretty decent but how do you get 18% undecided just 13 days away?

There are probably enough Republicans that know that KKKobach is awful, but not sure if they can pull the trigger and vote for the Democrat.

This is a recipe for a one-way breakaway at the end, likelier for Kobach than Kelly.

Sebelius was a fairly standard democrat.  Kansas was probably at least as Republican back then. Probably one of the few far-right states you can say that about nowadays save maybe Utah or Montana.

There's not 18% undecided. Orman has 10%.

Orman has to drop out, but we know he won't.

The movement in the head-to-head is interesting.

Maybe Kelly is gaining some traction among Orman voters? That could be a positive come election day and with some split second decisions.

Awful title. I thought there were rules about editorializing a title?

False alarm, not sure what he saw in the polling to change course and stay in the race.

I actually think high undecideds makes sense here. Lots of Republicans don't want to vote for a Democrat, but they cannot stomach Kobach. In they end, they'll hold their nose, vote Kobach, and not tell their friends who they chose on Sunday.

That's why I think Kobach wins. This always happens and the Republicans that end up doing this usually never end up feeling any remorse for it.
