Poll: Sam Brownback Down Six Points

Kansas governor Sam Brownback is running six points behind his Democratic opponent Paul Davis, according to a new Fox News poll.

The poll shows Davis leading 48–42, which is a dramatic shift from the same poll in October, when Brownback led by six percentage points.

Brownback appears to have lost much of that ground because of Republican voters’ willingness to support Davis — 20 percent of Republican likely voters surveyed backed Davis over Brownback. Davis also captured a majority of the independent vote in the Fox poll. 

Brownback fares much better in YouGov’s final poll, which considers the Kansas governor’s race a toss-up and shows Brownback up by less than one percentage point. The Real Clear Politics average of polls has Davis up by 2.3 percentage points.
