A’ight, NEJCers: One last post-primary political poll.
Three-term U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts on Tuesday survived a strong closing-weeks push from tea party primary challenger Milton Wolf, a Leawood radiologist whose children attended SM East. Some political pundits read Roberts’ showing – he took 48 percent of the total primary vote, meaning more than half of Republicans voted against him — as a sign that he’s at his most vulnerable.
But Roberts will be facing two general election opponents — Democrat Chad Taylor and Independent Greg Orman — who both have limited name recognition and will be competing for anti-Roberts votes.
Does Roberts have anything to be worried about in the general election? What would have to happen between now and November for him to lose?
