The Iowa Republican: Voter remorse: Rematch of Culver vs. Nussle would be too close to call
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
Last week, TheIowaRepublican.com poll showed that 53% of Iowans are
ready to give someone else the opportunity to lead the state as Iowa's
Governor, while only 36% of those surveyed feel that Governor Chet
Culver deserves to be re-elected. Today we delve a little deeper into
the voters. dissatisfaction with Iowa's current governor, Chet Culver.
... In November of 2006, Chet Culver defeated Nussle with 54% of the
vote. Now, just two and a half years into his first term, Culver's
winning margin has evaporated over the opponent that he beat by 10
points. It is also important to note that Nussle served as President
Bush's Budget Director from the summer of 2007 to the end of Bush's
term earlier this year. Nussle has been out of the public eye in Iowa
since losing to Culver, yet he's statistically tied with the Governor.
