On behalf of the Yoder for Congress campaign, Public Opinion Strategies recently completed a 400 sample of likely general election voters in Kansas' Third Congressional District. The poll was conducted August 6-8, 2016 and has a margin of error of +/- 4.9% in 95 out of 100 cases.
Kevin Yoder leads the ballot by a wide 53%-36% margin.
Congressman Yoder leads Jay Sidie on the trial heat by a significant 53%-36% margin, winning GOP'ers by a wider margin than Sidie wins Democrats, and having a nearly twenty-point lead among Independents.
Kevin's hard-work in the district has paid off.
When voters are asked the first couple of words that come to mind regarding Kevin Yoder, voters talk about his "integrity, the way he fights for people," "his willingness to listen," "the fact that he works for the best interests of veterans," "how he stays in touch with his constituents," "that he's done a pretty good job of being bi-partisan," and that "he has conservative values."
Jay Sidie, the Democrat, is unknown.
Just 19% of voters have even heard of Jay Sidie in the district, with Sidie has a total name ID in the district of 19%, even lower than his 2014 opponent's starting name ID (21%).
Kevin is out-running Donald Trump by a wide margin.
While Kevin is winning 53% of the vote in this district, Donald Trump currently trails Hillary Clinton by a 44%-38% margin.
But, voters strongly prefer a Congress led by Paul Ryan over Nancy Pelosi.
In a post-up of the two Congressional party leaders, Paul Ryan holds a commanding 57%-36% lead over former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. These results indicate that if this race comes down to a "checks-and-balances" contest, Kevin Yoder would have a significant edge over Jay Sidie.

As the world searches high and low for convicted murderer and drug kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, perhaps the authorities should be searching for him in San Francisco.
San Francisco, a sanctuary city, has policies designed to shelter illegal immigrants from federal law enforcement officials. Essentially, sanctuary cities are those that openly defy federal immigration laws on the books, putting the comfort of illegal immigrants ahead of the safety of Americans. Right now, there are about 300 cities in America that operate in some form as a sanctuary city.

"I am truly honored to have the support of so many true American heroes. I have spent the last four years fighting for veterans' rights, advocating for legislation that ensures that the federal government lives up to the promises it made to our military members and veterans. I have fought to reverse President Obama's cuts to the Military Tuition Assistance Program, and I have supported legislation giving veterans the freedom to choose their hospitals. If re-elected, I will continue to be a leader for veterans rights, and do whatever I can to help solve problems for the veterans of the 3rd District."
