Topeka Republican gubernatorial candidate Sam Brownback has a large lead over Democrat Tom Holland, and if it were up to Kansas voters, the national health care bill would be repealed.
Those are some of the results of a Rasmussen poll of 500 likely Kansas voters that was taken June 30.
The poll found Brownback supported by 59 percent of voters while Holland had 31 percent. The results are similar to margins in March and May.
The poll had a margin of error of plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.
Brownback is leaving the U.S. Senate to run for governor. Holland is a member of the state senate and from Baldwin City.
Holland’s major problem is that many voters don’t know much about him, the pollsters reported.
Sixty-nine percent of Kansans favor repeal of the health care bill signed into law by President Obama. Nationally, 60 percent favor repeal, according to a Rasmussen poll.
The poll also found that 27 of Kansas voters consider themselves members of the Tea Party movement, compared with 16 percent nationwide.
