Plus, the airwaves are full of he-said, she-said commercials these days. They include talk of higher taxes, supposed broken promises and even some nonsense about how President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid seem to be involved in every race.
All of that makes this an appropriate time to check the pulse of what Kansans are thinking as they go to the polls.
