Kansas GOP Insider (wannabe): Poll tipping is unsurprising

Poll tipping is unsurprising

Solid coverage of the Kansas race for U.S. Senate from the Washington Examiner.

Editor Byron York attended yesterday's debate between Greg Orman and Pat Roberts. Roberts was a little-bit of a one-hit wonder, repeatedly noting that Orman is a Democrat. 

His one-note appearance was necessary -- Roberts will only win if Kansas recognize Orman for the jackass in sheep's clothing that he actually is. 

It's beginning to work. FINALLY. (Side bar: The Kansas Republican Party is claiming the poll turnaround can be attributed in part to a full-court press including a ground game. Um. Where is this Roberts' ground game? I guess maybe the grassroots people in Harper, Kan., are knocking it out of the park, but here in most-populated Johnson County? Yeah. OK.)

Here's the important takeaway from the York article:

"The bottom line is this is still Kansas, which has not sent a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since the 1930s. If the polls are indeed tipping back to Republicans, no one should really be surprised."
