According to the latest polling, bot President Trump and incumbent US Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA), have upended the polls to take commanding leads with less than 72 hours until the polls close.
The President, currently on a 5-state swing through battleground states prior to Tuesday’s election, now leads Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden by 7 percentage points, 48 percent to 41percent, this according to the latest Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa poll. The poll was announced Saturday October 31, 2020.
These numbers illustrate that momentum is with the President as Election Day approaches. In the last poll, which was conducted in September, President Trump and Joe Biden were tied at 47 percent each.
Iowa is included in the President’s final battleground state tour. He will be holding a rally in Dubuque.
“Nobody’s going to do for Iowa what I did for Iowa,” the President said to an enthusiastic, cheering crowd during a rally last month. President Trump has been very good for the state’s corn growers with his administration’s stance on Ethanol and his support for farmers across the country.
Biden’s most recent visit to the Hawkeye State was on Friday at a marginally attended drive-in rally in Des Moines. There, Biden almost sounded conciliatory in his tone.
“I’ll work as hard for those who don’t support me as those who do,” the Biden said. “In my administration, there will be no red states or blue states, just the United States of America.”
Trump supporters indicated that they were persuaded to vote for the President because of his proposals for the US economy and taxes.
In Iowa’s US Senate race, polling shows Ernst with a 46 percent to 42 percent lead over Democrat challenger Theresa Greenfield. This signifies a 7-percentage point turnaround from the September when Greenfield led by 3 percentage points, 45 percent 42 percent.
