According to the latest poll conducted by the Docking Institute of Public Affairs at Fort Hays State University, Kansas voters prefer Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. 

The survey, conducted between Nov. 1-3, shows Donald Trump holding a 24-point lead over Hillary Clinton. An earlier survey conducted by the institute found Trump to have an 8-point lead over Clinton. The initial survey was taken in September and October before the most recent FBI announcement regarding Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server when she was U.S. secretary of state.

The latest data also shows U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran to be comfortably on track to secure his seat for another six years. Moran is up 64 points ahead of Democratic challenger Patrick Wiesner and Liberterian Robert Garrard.

The poll also found that 40 percent of likely voters hope to retain all  five Kansas Supreme Court justices on the ballot. Twenty-four percent of those polled said they plan to cast ballots to retain none of the justices.
 
When broken down by each justice, the numbers show: 

  • Chief Justice Lawton Nuss – 46 percent of likely voters said they would retain, while 35 percent said they would not retain, and 19 percent said they don’t know.
     
  • Justice Marla Luckert – 46 percent of likely voters said they would retain, while 35 percent said they would not retain, and 19 percent said they don’t know.
     
  • Justice Carol Beier – 46 percent of likely voters said they would retain, while 35 percent said they would not retain, and 19 percent said they don’t know.
     
  • Justice Daniel Biles – 46 percent of likely voters said they would retain, while 35 percent said they would not retain, and 19 percent said they don’t know.
     
  • Justice Caleb Stegall – 52 percent of likely voters said they would retain, while 29 percent said they would not retain, and 19 percent said they don’t know.

The Docking Institute poll included 313 respondents identified as likely voters.
