New Poll Shows Bad News For Dems In Crucial Primary State

(Tea Party PAC) – President Trump is gaining on Democrat frontrunners Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Joe Biden (D) in a head to head matchup in Iowa, according to a poll from Iowa Emerson College.

The poll was taken between October 13-18 and surveyed 888 registered Iowa voters. It showed the president leading both Warren and Biden in hypothetical general election matchups in the Hawkeye state, beating both candidates 51% to their 49%.

Ruh-roh!

In the hypothetical matchup, however, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) seemed to have an advantage, leading the president by two points, 51% to Trump’s 49%.

The margin of error for the poll is +/-3.2 percent, indicating that the race is in flux:

Sanders’ lead is surprising, considering he’s not actually leading in the Democrat field. Biden and Warren are currently tied with 23% support, followed by South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D), who showed 16% support. Sanders came in at fourth place with 13% support, followed by Andrew Yang (D), Gov. Steve Bullock (D), and Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) with five percent, four percent, and three percent, respectively.

The results hit Sen. Kamala Harris’ (D-CA) campaign the hardest, who has clearly been unsuccessful at her attempts to focus on campaigning in Iowa.

As Breitbart News detailed:

Harris signaled a switch in campaign strategies in September, telling a colleague that she is “f*cking moving to Iowa.”

“‘I’m f*cking moving to Iowa’ – Kamala Harris,” read an email following the presidential hopeful’s quip.

“She cut to the chase!” the email stated. “We’re doubling our organizers on the ground in Iowa and Kamala is ramping up her time on the trail there, beginning today in Cedar Rapids.”

The following month, Harris launched her “I feel your pain” tour across Iowa, which featured the presidential hopeful speaking to Iowans in more “intimate” settings, even helping some “prepare Sunday suppers.”

In spite of these efforts, she was only able to garner two percent support in the crucial primary state, as did Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) and Tom Steyer (D):

The poll also revealed that more Iowa voters oppose the Democrats’ attempt to impeach the president than support it, by 48% to 42%.

Across the board, Iowans seem to simply not care that much about impeachment, with only six percent considering it to be an important factor in choosing who they will support for president.

33% said that the economy was their deciding factor, 19% said health care, and ten percent chose “social issues.”

“The Democrats have some work to do in Iowa convincing voters that impeachment is a top priority of Congress; 67% of Democrats in Iowa support impeaching the president, but only 10% identify it as the most important issue in deciding their vote for president,” Emerson Polling Director Spencer Kimball said.
