Kansans need to understand the issues before they can be expected to offer an informed opinion about a challenge facing the state. Unfortunately, many public opinion surveys simply ask for an opinion with little done to ensure that it is informed or fact-based.
SurveyUSA is a national polling firm that has been utilized by KWCH-TV in Wichita and KCTV-5 in Kansas City. KPI partners with SurveyUSA for our statewide polling. The firm also was the only polling outfit to receive an “A” grade from political numbers guru Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight for their work through the teeth of the 2016 election season. FiveThirtyEight updated its rankings in May 2018 and SurveyUSA maintained its “A”. The polls survey 500+ Kansans from across the state.

Beginning in April 2018, KPI also partnered with Cor Strategies to conduct in-district policy polls around the state. These smaller polls aim to provide a better understanding of policy questions in specific parts of the state.
