New poll says Kansas governor's race is toss-up

A new poll suggests the Kansas governor’s race is a toss-up.

The poll released Sunday by NBC News and Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York, showed Democratic challenger Paul Davis as the choice of 45 percent of the likely voters surveyed.

Republican Gov. Sam Brownback was the choice of 44 percent.

Libertarian candidate Keen Umbehr was chosen by 5 percent and 6 percent were undecided.

The poll surveyed 757 likely voters from Oct. 18 through Oct. 22. The margin of error was 3.6 percent.

More of those surveyed viewed Brownback unfavorably than favorably – 50 percent to 42 percent.

Forty-three percent of those surveyed viewed Davis favorably and 34 percent viewed him unfavorably.

But 19 percent were unsure of their impressions of Davis, compared to 8 percent for Brownback.
