Independent candidate Greg Orman has a ten point lead over incumbent Sen. Pat Roberts (R) with likely and registered voters in the Kansas Senate race, according to an NBC/Marist poll released Sunday.
Among likely voters, 48 percent said they would support Orman while only 38 percent said they would support Roberts. Among registered voters, 46 percent said they would support Orman and just 36 percent said they would vote for Roberts.
The new NBC poll follows a Wednesday Suffolk University poll that found Orman with a five point lead over Roberts among likely voters.
Now that Democrat Chad Taylor dropped out of the race, polls have shown Orman with a significant lead over Roberts.
According to TPM’s Polltracker average, Orman has a one point lead over Roberts.
NBC surveyed 1,097 registered voters and 636 like voters Sept. 27-Oct. 1 with an overall margin of error plus or minus 3.9 percentage points.
