President on skids in Kansas

President Obama's approval rating in Kansas continues to slide, coming in at 34 percent in SurveyUSA polling last weekend, down 3 percentage points from March. In the latest poll, sponsored by KWCH, Channel 12, the president only had majority support among African-Americans (73 percent), Hispanics (52 percent), Democrats (77 percent) and liberals (75 percent). In national polls, Obama's approval rating stands at 48.4 percent. And in December 2008, Kansans gave then-President Bush 38 percent approval.
