The Iowa Republican: Branstad's lead over Culver nears 20 points

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

In a recent poll conducted by Hill Research Group for the Iowa First
Foundation, former Governor Terry Branstad beat current Iowa Governor
Chet Culver in a head-to-head match-up by 19 points. Branstad was
supported by 53% of respondents, while Governor Chet Culver only
garnered 34%. Branstad was the only prospective Republican general
election candidate who beat Governor Culver in a head-to-head matchup.
The results of the Iowa First Foundation poll validate the findings of
TheIowaRepublican.com poll that was conducted in early July. In
TheIowaRepublican.com poll last month, Branstad beat Governor Culver
in a head-to-head match-up by 53% to 37%. The troubling news for
Governor Culver and his re-election team isn't that a potential GOP
candidate beats him by nearly 20 points, it's that Culver's polling
numbers continue to slide.
