You’d think all the national publicity Kansas’ sentators get these days would move the needle on their approval ratings at home. Not so, or at least not much, according to SurveyUSA’s ongoing polling of all senators’ constituents. Of the Kansans polled last month, 54 percent approved of the job Sen. Sam Brownback is doing, compared with 52 percent last May. For Sen. Pat Roberts, the approval number in February was 56 percent, compared with 51 percent last May. In fact, the Republican senators’ numbers are remarkable only for how they fall short of Democratic Gov. Kathleen Sebelius: She was at 60 percent last month, up from 54 percent in May 2005. And consider this: 54 percent of Republicans and even 53 percent of conservatives said they liked what she’s doing. Hard to see those numbers adding up to a re-election defeat in November.
