The Iowa Republican: What is the Des Moines Register hiding?
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
Governor Chet Culver can't turn around without being confronted with
new poll results that show him losing badly in a head-to-head match-up
with former Governor Terry Branstad. In early July,
TheIowaRepublican.com poll show Culver losing to Branstad by 16
points. Later that month, a poll commissioned by the Iowa First
Foundation showed him losing to Branstad by 19 points. Now, the latest
Rasmussen poll shows him down by 20 points. The latest round of
polling numbers paints a much more disturbing picture for Governor
Culver and his re-election team. While he continues to get pummeled by
a well-known former governor, he also trails the lesser-known Bob
Vander Plaats by four points. No matter how Culver and his team want
to spin his poll numbers, the first term governor might be the first
incumbent to lose re-election since 1962.
