Remember when I said Republicans should be a bit more concerned about the Senate race in Iowa? Never mind, apparently:
Neutralizing the traditional Democratic lead among women voters, Republican State Sen. Joni Ernst leads U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley, the Democrat, 50 – 44 percent among likely voters in the race to replace U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin in Iowa, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
Ernst leads among men 56 – 39 percent, while Braley leads among women by a smaller 50 – 44 percent margin, the independent Quinnipiac University poll finds. This survey of likely voters can not be compared with earlier surveys of registered voters.
That likely-voter screen is a real pain for Democrats, huh?
Cheer up, Congressman Braley. Ernst’s hog had a worse morning.
