A new Dock­ing In­sti­tute of Pub­lic Af­fairs at Fort Hays State Uni­versity poll (Feb. 23-April 11; 573 res­id­ents; +/-4%) found Sec­ret­ary of State Kris Kobach (R) the most well-known of po­ten­tial and de­clared can­did­ates, but also the most un­pop­u­lar.

“When asked if they have heard of any of the fol­low­ing Kan­sas politi­cians, slightly over three quar­ters (77%) of re­spond­ents have heard of … Kobach, … less than half (46%) of re­spond­ents have heard of [state] At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Derek Schmidt (R), one third (33%) of re­spond­ents have heard of” former Wichita May­or Carl Brew­er (D), “and slightly less than one third (32%) of re­spond­ents have heard of” Lt. Gov. Jeff Co­ly­er (R).

“Among those who had heard of each politi­cian … Brew­er [was] the most highly rated, fol­lowed by … Schmidt. … Kobach … was rated the low­est.” (re­lease)
