Gov. Sam Brownback has fallen behind Democratic gubernatorial candidate Paul Davis, according to a new poll.
The Rasmussen Report survey of likely Kansas voters found Davis with 51 percent of the vote to 41 percent for Brownback. The telephone survey polled 750 people.
Three percent liked another candidate, while five percent are still undecided.
The poll asked, "In thinking about the 2014 election for governor of Kansas, suppose you had a choice between Republican Sam Brownback and Democrat Paul Davis. If the election were held today, would you vote for Republican Sam Brownback or Democrat Paul Davis?"
The margin of sampling error is +/- 4 percentage points.
The poll was released on the same day Brownback rolled out a new road map to create 100,000 jobs. He outlined his second-term agenda, saying he wants to create an urban incentive plan, similar to the Rural Opportunity Zones program.
Chris Pumpelly, spokesman for the Davis campaign said Brownback's road map has been an "unmitigated failure."
"Not only has Sam Brownback missed the mark on all of his chosen benchmarks, the Kansas economy is stagnant, our schools are struggling, middle class families are hurting and the state is facing a budget crisis of Sam Brownback's making," Pumpelly said in a statement.
