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 poll that was conducted in early July. In 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.
