KDP points out Brownback’s numbers

The Kansas Democratic Party blasted new poll numbers Wednesday showing a decline in approval for Senator Sam Brownback. According to the numbers, in March, public support for Brownback dropped 9 points to a record low, from 50 percent to 41 percent.  During the same period, disapproval rose from 42 percent to 47 percent. Among moderate voters his disapproval rose 14 points.

Included in the numbers are words such as stunning and plummeted- which add drama more than actually reflect the changes. 

The KDP points out that the poll numbers show a decrease in support for Brownback and a growing dislike for his actions in Washington.

“Voters are beginning to identify Sam Brownback as part of the problem in Washington, and this is costing him support from independents and moderate Republicans,” said Tyler Longpine, Communications Director for the Kansas Democratic Party, “Kansans are looking for someone who knows how to create jobs in Kansas, not a career politician whose has contributed to the gridlock and partisanship in Washington.”

But the public’s dislike isn’t being reserved for Brownback, new poll numbers show a growing uneasiness with lawmakers in Topeka and Washington. But the KDP contends the numbers are a sign of the growing weakness of Brownback’s campaign.

“This poll reveals serious weaknesses for Brownback, his campaign for Governor isn’t as strong as he’d lead us to believe.  As more Kansans become familiar with his record in Washington his numbers will only get worse,” added Longpine.

What the KDP once again doesn’t add is any numbers showing the strength of any of its candidates campaigns.
