John Deeth Blog: Vander Plaats leads GOP; Culver re-elected

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

All those worries yesterday about the Big Lug's re-election prospects
are tempered somewhat by this Iowa Republican poll: Republican Primary
Voters Bob Vander Plaats: 46%, Don't Know: 27%, Chris Rants: 14% ... We
won't even need my convention scenario; they're ready to nominate
Vander Plaats outright. He's near 50% and the Not Vander Plaats vote
is splintered. All Gay Marriage All The Time will turn off moderates
and Culver wins comfortably. If the GOP unites, quickly, behind one
non-BVP candidate, that candidate might pull it off, but do they even
want to? A GOP They say they're polling general election races
tomorrow, but my guess is they're push-polling those instead. Given
IR's question wording I'm skeptical of anything beyond a Republican
primary poll.
