Bob Beatty: Kansas vote was much different from nation

Kansas has gone for the Republican nominee for president since 1968, and 2012 was no different. Mitt Romney defeated President Obama by 22 percentage points (60 to 38 percent) in the Sunflower State, an increase of 8 percentage points over GOP nominee John McCain’s vote share in 2008. Nationally, Obama defeated Romney by 3.3 percent (50.8 to 47.5 percent).
