Kansas Governor: Brownback (R) 57%, Holland (D) 34%

Rasmussen Reports

There are still no surprises in Kansas’ gubernatorial race, with Republican Sam Brownback continuing to hold a substantial lead over Democrat Tom Holland.

The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Brownback picking up 57% support, while Holland earns 34% of the vote. Just two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and six percent (6%) are undecided.

Last month, Brownback was ahead 59% to 31%. There’s been little change in the race since March, when the Republican posted a 55% to 33% lead over Holland.

Brownback, a popular member of the Senate since 1996, is running in a state that trends strongly Republican and conservative. He continues to hold solid leads among both men and women. Among voters not affiliated with either major political party, Brownback leads Holland 45% to 39%.

Brownback is viewed Very Favorably by 31% of Kansas voters and Very Unfavorably by 20%. Just five percent (5%) have no opinion of him.

Five percent (5%) have a Very Favorable opinion of Holland, who currently serves as a state senator, while seven percent (7%) view him Very Unfavorably. But one-in-three voters (33%) don’t know enough about the Democrat to form any kind of opinion of him.

At this stage of the campaign, Rasmussen Reports considers the very favorable and very unfavorable figures more significant than the overall favorability totals.

This survey of 500 Likely Voters in Kansas was conducted on August 4, 2010 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 4.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Congressman Jerry Moran, the winner of Tuesday’s hotly contested GOP Primary, leads Democratic Primary winner Lisa Johnston by better than two-to-one in the state’s Senate race.

Only six percent (6%) in Kansas rate the U.S. economy these days as good or excellent, while 51% rate it as poor. Twenty-eight percent (28%) say economic conditions are getting better, but 47% say the economy is getting worse.

Holland is backed by 66% of those who believe the economy is improving, while Brownback picks up support from 77% who feel it’s worsening.
