If Barack Obama becomes the Democratic nominee, do you think he can win Kansas?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on January 30, 2008
“I think he has a great chance in Douglas County, and I think any Democratic candidate has a better chance in Kansas than they did before.”
“I don’t know. There are a lot of factors to consider, but I doubt it. It will be a nice surprise if he does.”
“No, I don’t think it’s possible. When was the last time Kansas ever went to a Democrat in the presidential election?”
“Unfortunately, I don’t. I just think Kansas is too conservative. It could surprise me, but I don’t think so.”
