After a monumental shake-up last week in which the Democratic nominee attempted to drop out of the Kansas Senate race, incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts (R-KS) trails independent candidate Greg Orman by 1 percentage point, according to a poll released Monday.

The KSN News/Survey USA poll found Orman narrowly edging Roberts, 37 percent to 36 percent, though that is well within the margin of error.

Democratic nominee Chad Taylor, who said he would withdraw from the race last week but whom Secretary of State Kris Kobach (R) has ruled must remain on the ballot in November, still attracted 10 percent of the vote.

The poll surveyed 555 likely voters. Its margin of error is 4.2 percentage points.
