A new Public Policy Polling survey in Iowa finds President Obama barely ahead of Mitt Romney , 47% to 45%.
Obama led by five points in July and by 10 points in May.
Key findings: “Iowa makes yet another swing state where voters don’t really care for either Obama or Romney. Obama’s approval numbers are particularly poor with only 45% of voters approving of him to 50% who disapprove. The fact that he has a small lead in the state despite his under water approval speaks to at least some voters regarding this election as a choice rather than a referendum. Voters aren’t big on Romney either with 47% rating him favorably to 48% with an unfavorable opinion.”
