“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.
