Poll puts Tiahrt ahead on favorability, unfavorability

To no one's surprise, an unnamed generic Democrat would be no match for either Rep. Todd Tiahrt, R-Goddard, or Rep. Jerry Moran, R-Hays, in Kansas' general election for U.S. Senate, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll. More interesting are the Republicans' favorability ratings: 22 percent of voters surveyed have a very favorable view of Tiahrt, compared with Moran's 15 percent; 15 and 4 percent say they have very unfavorable views of Tiahrt and Moran, respectively.
