A new poll by Emerson College in Massachusetts finds the Kansas governor’s race is a statistical tie with five weeks to go until the general election.
The poll reports 37 percent of voters surveyed chose Republican Kris Kobach and 36 percent chose Democrat Laura Kelly if the election was held now.
Independent candidate Greg Orman received support from 9 percent of voters. About 15 percent of those surveyed are still undecided.
The poll indicates President Donald Trump is popular in Kansas with a 55 percent approval and 45 percent disapproval rating.
