Actually, in the last election, he won but only got 48% of the vote...more people voted against him.  The problem is - while there were several Kansas republicans how had a "republican for Davis (the democrat)" sign in their yard, there was a third party candidate running.  And many Kansas republicans could not vote for a democrat if it were Jesus himself running, so they voted for the 3rd party candidate.  He won...and Kansas continues to reap the benefits of the Laugher theory.  When asked why things weren't working in Kansas, Laugher himself (who worked with Brownback) said "This takes time....it could take up to 10 years to see results".    Rather odd, because prior to the tax cuts, Kansans were promised that they would be "a shot of adrenaline" to the economy. 
 
Republicans and Dems do not seem to understand that revenue cuts must coincide with spending cuts but there is a fine line in cuts.  People do not like it when you starting cutting education and infrastructure.  They understand that those are needed expenditures.  They also do not like it when they see those who have the most get even more.  
 
Kansas is the poster state for what not to do with tax and spending.

But what about the poor sucker in a trailer working two jobs and supporting the republicans?  He'll get a tax savings of about $1,000 in HIS income tax cut...but he'll end up paying about $5,000 MORE in his national sales tax.   Just for fun...take what you paid for groceries, clothing, entertainment, home improvement and take 23% of that and tell me how much the tax cut for the rich worked out for you. 
 
That same guy will vote for Cruz because he agrees with him on the three g's.  God, guns and gays.  You know, the important stuff.

They should be more concerned with the 3 R's
