WICHITA, Kansas The U.S. Senate seat held by Pat Roberts is up for grabs and the race is heating up because of a candidate who is not even on the ballot yet: Independent Greg Orman.
It is only one of many results revealed in the latest KSN News Poll conducted exclusively for KSN-TV by SurveyUSA.
Ahead of the Republican primary on August 5, Senator Pat Roberts leads conservative primary challenger Milton Wolf by 20 points. The margin of error is +/- 3.8%. It is down from a 33 point lead that Roberts had in June when the last KSN News Poll was conducted.
SurveyUSA interviewed 2,400 Kansan adults from July 17 22. Of those, 2,079 were registered to vote. Of the number of people registered, 691 were determined to be likely to vote in the Republican primary election on August 5.
On the Democratic side, when voters were asked, If the Democratic primary for U.S. Senator were today, which Democrat would you vote for?, Chad Taylor garnered 48% of the vote. Patrick Wiesner took 17%. Undecided voters made up 35%. The margin of error is +/- 5.6%.
If Sen. Roberts makes it through the primary, he could face a tough challenge in the November general election: Independent candidate Greg Orman.
