According to the Rasmussen poll, released Friday...

Democratic challenger Paul Davis remains ahead of incumbent Republican Sam Brownback in the race for Kansas governor.  The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Kansas Voters finds Davis with 52% of the vote to Brownback’s 45%. Just one percent (1%) prefers some other candidate, and two percent (2%) are still undecided. 

And then, there's this report, from the Associated Press:

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) — After lifting the spirits of Kansas Democrats eager to oust conservative Republican Governor Sam Brownback, challenger Paul Davis now appears to be losing ground. The state's longstanding GOP loyalties and negative television ads seem to have been eroding his onetime lead in the polls. Incumbent Brownback has been gaining since the Republican Governors Association began bombarding television viewers with spots focused on how Davis was caught as a young attorney in a strip club during a 1998 meth raid. Davis has attacked Brownback for sharp tax cuts that led to a projected budget shortfall and a downgrading of the state's credit rating. The latest independent polls have indicated the race is a toss-up or with Brownback slightly ahead.
