Obama's approval sags in Kansas, too

The summer has been hard on President Obama's poll numbers nationally, driving his approval rating down to a current average of 51.4 percent. The latest SurveyUSA poll of Kansans, conducted last month and co-sponsored by KWCH, Channel 12, found Obama's approval rating at 41 percent — the same support he got on Election Day in the state but down from SurveyUSA ratings in Kansas of 49 percent in June and 53 percent in May.
