Kansans cold to Obama

President Obama's decision on a troop surge in Afghanistan didn't spark a surge in his popularity in Kansas. The latest SurveyUSA poll, co-sponsored by KWCH, Channel 12, put his approval rating at 36 percent in the state, down 2 percentage points from November and down 26 points since he took office. He has majority approval in Kansas only among Democrats, liberals, African-Americans and renters.
