The 2020 presidential election is here and top battleground states are looking promising for President Donald Trump.
Iowa Sees Support for Trump
One state in particular that President Trump has seen a surge in is Iowa. According to a new Des Moines Register Iowa poll shows President Trump getting 48% while Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden just at 41%.
Just back in September, the race was tied at 47% so the new poll is promising for Republicans when it comes to this crucial battleground state.
Battleground State Looking Good for GOP
The Des Moines Register reports:
Republican President Donald Trump has taken over the lead in Iowa as Democratic former Vice President Joe Biden has faded, a new Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll shows just days before Election Day.
The president now leads by 7 percentage points over Biden, 48% to 41%. Three percent say they will vote for someone else, 2% aren’t sure and 5% don’t want to say for whom they will vote.
In September’s Iowa Poll, the candidates were tied at 47% to 47%.
The poll of 814 likely Iowa voters was conducted by Selzer & Co. of Des Moines from Oct. 26-29. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.4 percentage points.
Democrats have been hopeful that they could turn Iowa blue but a recent RealClearPolitics poll shows President Trump has taken back a substantial lead in this state.
Some more great news for the GOP continues with the same poll giving Republican Senator Joni Ernst a 4 point lead over his Democrat opponent Theresa Greenfield.
Senate Race Heats Up
The presidential election isn’t the only pivotal race. The Senate election is heating up and it’s crucial for Republicans to win states such as Iowa.
Commenting on the poll, Nate Cohn tweeted, “Trump leads the final Seizer poll of Iowa by 7 points, 48 to 41.”

That's the same margin as their final poll four years ago, which wound up foreshadowing Trump's Midwestern sweephttps://t.co/bIOVhFRaQh
