Iowa Looks Like Toss Up in Presidential Race; Grassley Ahead; Branstad Unpopular

Raleigh, N.C. – PPP's new Presidential poll in Iowa finds a tight race in the general election for President in the state. Hillary Clinton leads 7 of her Republican opponents while trailing 4 of them, but in none of the cases are the margins larger than 4 points.

The strongest Republican against Clinton in the state is Ben Carson, who leads her 44/40. The other three GOP hopefuls ahead of Clinton all lead her by just a single point- Mike Huckabee at 44/43, Scott Walker at 44/43, and Marco Rubio at 43/42.

The Republicans who fare the worst against Clinton are Jeb Bush who trails by 4 at 44/40, and Rand Paul and Donald Trump who each trail by 3 at 43/40. The rest of the GOP hopefuls each trail Clinton by 2 points- Ted Cruz at 44/42, Carly Fiorina at 42/40, and Chris Christie and John Kasich each at 41/39.

“Iowa is looking very much like a toss up in the Presidential race at this early stage,” said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling. “The numbers are more reminiscent of the photo finish in the state in 2004 than Barack Obama’s relatively comfortable wins in 2008 and 2012.”

Chuck Grassley looks to be in pretty good shape for reelection next year- he leads his prospective Democratic opponents by anywhere from 22 to 24 points- it's 51/29 over Bob Krause, 53/30 over Tom Fiegen, and 52/28 over Rob Hogg.

Terry Branstad is not terribly popular right now, with 42% of voters approving of him to 47% who disapprove. Voters in the state are pretty unhappy with several of Branstad's recent actions. Only 34% approve of his recent veto of funding for the major universities in the state, compared to 49% opposed to that action. There's even less support for his recent veto of funding for K12 education in the state- that meets with 29% support and 57% opposition. But the most unpopular recent action of all is his veto of the bipartisan plan to keep open 2 of Iowa's 4 mental health institutions. Just 20% of voters support him on that issue to 63% who are opposed, and on that one even Republicans are opposed to his action with only 37% in favor of and 42% against it.

Public Policy Polling surveyed 1,500 registered voters from August 7 th to 9th. The margin of error for the overall survey is +/-2.5%. 80% of participants responded via the phone, while 20% of respondents who did not have landlines conducted the survey over the internet.
