Latest SurveyUSA Poll Numbers

SurveyUSA, in conjunction with KWCH-TV Wichita and KCTV-TV Kansas City, released a new poll on Feb. 1, showing Jerry expanding his lead over Tiahrt to 7 points and support for Tiahrt dropping.

The poll reinforces that Jerry holds a decisive lead among various constituencies.  He holds large leads by gender, party affiliation, ideology, and nearly all age groups.  Most revealing is the pivotal area of northeastern Kansas where Jerry holds a 15 point lead.  This area, which includes Johnson County, is considered “neutral” ground since neither candidate represents the area.

Jerry also has key endorsements from a number of leading U.S. Senators including Richard Burr (R-NC), Tom Coburn (R-OK), Jim DeMint (R-SD), Mike Johanns (R-NE), and John Thune (R-SD). Former Sen. Jim Talent (R-MO) and U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) are also backing Moran.

The Bottom Line

The fundraising and SurveyUSA poll results paint the bigger picture — Jerry’s support across Kansas and in all facets of the campaign is strong and broad.  This generous support and strong and growing belief of Kansans in Jerry shows a dedication to the candidate who has demonstrated consistent leadership, fiscal responsibility, and a commitment to Kansas above the pressures of Washington.

Join Jerry in the fight to restore America.
