Bleeding Heartland: Survey USA finds record low approval for Grassley

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Via the Senate Guru blog I saw that Survey USA released results from
its late September poll of 600 adults in Iowa (margin of error 4.1
percent). The survey measured Senator Chuck Grassley's approval rating
at 50 percent. That's the lowest figure ever for Grassley by this
pollster, and you can see from this graph that Grassley's trendlines
are ugly. A full 40 percent of respondents disapprove of Grassley's
performance. His high-profile role in the health care reform debate
seems to have hurt his image. Senate Guru notes, "Grassley is also
below 50% approval among independents (48%) and self-described
moderates (47%)." The Des Moines Register published a new article
Monday on rumors that a well-known and well-funded Democrat will give
Grassley "the race of his life." Speculation seems to be centering on
former First Lady Christie Vilsack, who is now executive director of
the Iowa Initiative, and prominent attorney Roxanne Conlin, a onetime
U.S. Attorney who was the Democratic nominee for governor in 1982.
