-PPP's newest Kansas poll finds Hillary Clinton trailing all of her potential Republican foes in the state, but by much closer margins than Barack Obama lost by there. Clinton trails Jeb Bush 45/39, Mike Huckabee 46/41, Rand Paul 45/41, Chris Christie 42/38, and Ted Cruz 43/42. It's not likely Clinton could win Kansas, but she would at least come closer than Democrats usually do.
-Jerry Moran has generally positive approval numbers- 39% of voters approve of him to 26% who disapprove. But 35% with no opinion is a bit of a warning sign for him- it was a bit of an early sign for Pat Roberts that he could face some trouble when we found last February that 41% of Kansans had no opinion about him. Moran's 55/17 spread with Republicans does exceed the 42/16 mark we found for Roberts a year and a half ago though.
-Even in a conservative state like Kansas voters support increasing the minimum wage to $10 an hour, 49/40. It has 79% support from Democrats, 56/31 favor with independents, and even 28% of Republicans support the proposed increase.
-Royals fans are feeling pretty optimistic as their team sniffs October for the first time in decades. 86% think the team is going to make the playoffs, 39% think they're going to win the American League, and 14% even think they're going to win the World Series. Fans are also starting to hop on the bandwagon- when we polled Kansas in February only 49% of voters in the state said they identified as Royals fans, but that's now up all the way to 58% with no other team getting more than 5% support.
-Finally we find that 44% of Kansans have a favorable opinion of the band Kansas to only 5% with a negative one. 51% have no opinion one way or the other.
