Senior citizens not that into Brownback

Sen. Sam Brownback, R-Kan., had a 50 percent approval rating overall in the most recent SurveyUSA poll, sponsored by KWCH, Channel 12.

Those surveyed who were 65 years old and older gave Brownback a 42 percent approval rating and a 53 percent disapproval rating. Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., who had a 57 percent overall approval rating, had 47 percent approval and 46 percent disapproval among senior citizens.
