“No supposedly to it; Brownback’s approval is in the toilet. Six years ago he passed deep tax cuts with the usual promise that it would create thousands of jobs and generate higher revenues. Well it didn’t. Kansas has had large deficits ever since and the cuts have gotten deeper and deeper into popular programs like education, transportation, and the like. “
I just don’t understand this drumbeat about how unpopular Brownback. The MSM was pronouncing his high level of unpopularity in 2014 :
“Brownback purged his moderate enemies and built a nice little conservative empire for himself. However, failing in the polls and seeing members of his own party backing his Democratic opponent; it is clear Brownbacks Conservative utopia is on the brink of collapse.”
“The results (disastrous) have reduced the governor to making appearances at grim strip malls like this one in a desperate attempt to salvage his re-election bid.”
“And now, a governor is in trouble “
And then after all that talk of Brownback being unpopular he wins by 4%.
