Donald Trump leads Hillary Clinton by double digits in Kansas, according to a new poll.

As The Wichita Eagle reports, the New York billionaire is ahead of the former Secretary of State by 12 points, 48 percent to 36 percent.

Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein drew 8 percent and 2 percent, respectively.

In the race for U.S. Senate, Sen. Jerry Moran has a comfortable lead over his Democratic opponent Patrick Wiesner.

Gov. Sam Brownback is viewed unfavorably by a majority of poll respondents. The poll shows that 69 percent have an unfavorable view of Gov. Brownback, while only 25 percent view the governor favorably.

The KSN News Poll was based on a phone survey of 595 likely Kansas voters.
