MISSION, KS — A new poll by Public Policy Polling released this morning found Dr. Barbara Bollier, physician and candidate for U.S. Senate, in a dead heat with her general election opponent, Congressman Roger Marshall.
Dr. Bollier receives 42 percent of the vote, while Congressman Marshall receives 43 percent. Other details outlined in the full polling memo include:
- Bollier is much more popular among independent voters than Marshall, and she leads in the Senate race among independents by a margin of 16 points (45-29).
- Bollier is also viewed even more favorably among independents (37-17), while Marshall is underwater in favorability with independents by 15 points (23-38).
- Bollier leads among women (45-40), voters between the ages of 18 and 45 (46-37), and ties Marshall with voters over the age of 65 (44-44).
- With 15% of voters overall undecided in the Senate race, including 14% of Democrats and 26% of independents, Bollier has room to gain more support ahead of the election.
- While the majority of Republicans support Marshall, 18% say they support Bollier for Senate.
“We said from the start that it didn’t matter who won the other side’s messy, expensive primary — Barbara is set to make history by winning this seat,” said Alexandra De Luca, Dr. Bollier’s communications director. “As we face a public health crisis and a national recession all at once, we need a U.S. Senator like Barbara who will do what’s right for Kansas families, rather than what’s right for themselves or any one political agenda. With record-breaking fundraising, strong grassroots support, and Barbara’s powerful message of independence and reason, we look forward to continuing our strong race and winning in November.”
