Gee, radically cut state revenue and the state budget and state services collapse. No sparkles, no cotton candy, and no rainbow unicorns…

Because right wingnut billionaires in Kansas and Missouri have a plan.

SurveyUSA conducted poll in Kansas August 20-23, 2014  of 560 likely general election voters. The margin off error is 4.2%:

If the election for Kansas Governor were today, which ticket would you vote for? (tickets rotated) The Republican ticket of Sam Brownback and Jeff Colyer? The Democratic ticket of Paul Davis and Jill Docking? Or the Libertarian ticket of Keen Umbehr and Josh Umbehr?


Brownback/Colyer (R) – 40%

Davis/Docking (D) – 48%

Umbehr/Umbehr (L) – 5%

Undecided – 6%


Brownback/Colyer (R) – 43%

Davis/Docking (D) – 44%

Umbehr/Umbehr (L) – 7%

Undecided – 6%


Brownback/Colyer (R) – 38%

Davis/Docking (D) – 53%

Umbehr/Umbehr (L) – 3%

[emphasis added]

Female/Male in the sample: 51%/49%. Party affiliation: 46% republican, 32% Democrat, 18% Independent.

And there’s this in the U.S. Senate race:

If the election for United States Senator from Kansas were today, who would you vote for? (candidate names rotated) Republican Pat Roberts? Democrat Chad Taylor? Libertarian Randall Batson? Or Independent Greg Orman?

Pat Roberts (R) – 37%

Chad Taylor (D) – 32%

Randall Batson (L) – 4%

Greg Orman (I) – 20%

Undecided – 6%

Which one of these issues will be most important in your vote for United States Senator? Obamacare? Immigration? Jobs and the economy? Or something else?

Obamacare – 22%

Immigration – 22%

Jobs And The Economy – 41%

Something Else – 12%

Not Sure – 4%

[emphasis added]

Interestingly, there’s not any appreciable gender gap in the Senate race. We’ve been seeing a lot of ads for the Independent candidate (we’re in the Kansas City media market – Johnson County, Kansas, a population center, is, too). Jobs, jobs, jobs, and jobs.

Even the Prince of right wingnut Voter ID is in a fight:

f the election for Kansas Secretary of State were today, who would you vote for? (candidate names rotated) Republican Kris Kobach? Or Democrat Jean Schodorf?

Kris Kobach (R) – 46%

Jean Schodorf (D) – 46%

Undecided – 8%

[emphasis added]

Unfortunately for Missouri, the problems in Knasas will hold no sway with Missouri’s right wingnut republicans. They’ll do the same thing here. Because right wingnut dogma can’t fail, it can only be failed.
