John McCain looks strong in the polls nationally and in Kansas â€” despite having lost the Kansas GOP caucuses â€” according to the latest SurveyUSA poll of how Kansans would vote in head-to-head contests. Whatever boost Barack Obama got out of the Kansas Democratic caucuses may have been short-lived, thanks to the flap over his pastor. In the poll, taken just as the pastorâ€™s video clips were all over the news in mid-March, McCain had the support of 51 percent of Kansas voters to Obamaâ€™s 39 percent, compared with 50 to 44 percent last month and 53 to 39 percent in January. A contest between McCain and Hillary Clinton polled this month at 55 to 36 percent, respectively. That compares with 59 to 35 percent in February and 53 to 40 percent in January.
