Democrats Appear to Have Edge for Senate in Iowa

A new Public Policy Polling survey in Iowa shows what other polls have found: Rep. Steve King (R) is the overwhelming favorite of Iowa Republicans to be their U.S. Senate candidate next year.

But King also trails every Democratic candidate tested against him by at least 7 points. The leading Democrat, Rep. Bruce Braley (D), leads King by double-digits, 49% to 38%.

In fact, the Democratic candidate leads in 14 of the 16 possible match ups tested, with the only exceptions being small leads for Rep. Tom Latham (R) over Chet Culver (D) and Dave Loebsack (D).
