2. KS is becoming fed up with elected Repukes, especially Brownback.

Voters went with ideological purity, were helped by some serious electoral fraud, and got themselves the biggest economic disaster in KS history. I do believe the pendulum is going to swing toward the left in KS.

3. Disgust

with the Kansas Republican Party is helping to turn a state that gave Barack Obama only 38% of their votes in 2012 to consider voting for Hillary Clinton. The number of undecideds in Kansas is high.

7. Kansas has always had an odd struggle between moderate and conservative Republicans

If a lot of those moderate decide it isn't worth supporting Republicans at this point, Kansas could flip.

8. 349, lol.

I realize that only 197 of that is heavily-leaning Dem, but it's not a bad place to start.

12. Wising up.

I hope.

From 2007:
...the conservative establishment has tricked Kansans, playing up the emotional touchstones of conservatism and perpetuating a sense of a vast liberal empire out to crush traditional values while barely ever discussing the Republicans' actual economic policies and what they mean to the working class.

14. As a Kansan since the late 70's

I find this to come off as bullshit. No disrespect.
No damn way that a Democrat, let alone one named Clinton could ever win Kansas.
Not for a few more Decades.
I would be more inclined to think that she would have a better chance winning Missouri which this map has leaning red.
I might believe it if it was someone with higher likeable numbers.

17. It is based on current polling. She's ahead of Trump. But still lots of undecideds

I expect those undecides will come around to Trump. So yeah, I think yr right.
