Confirms Ras' last poll. Hmmmm, they use the same model. Coincidence? Eh, I think we should just continue to mock Ras despite rational thought.

I've been sort of curious of this race. I always knew Grassley was popular until somewhat recently. Seems like there's been no major formation around 1 democratic candidate as all three seem unknown. Will be interesting after the primary.

Yep melvin - Grassley must be scared sick with only a paltry 30 point lead on the democrats.

Is this what liberals like you would call a toss-up?

20,000 new jobs from the private sector, and 325,000 people gave up and quit looking for jobs. That's what wasting a trillion dollars does for you.

At 20,000 per month it will only take 12 more years to get back the jobs lost since the stimulus and Obama's failure on the economy.

She's virtually unknown at this point. Grassley is still pretty well liked for this anti-incumbent cycle, but his numbers are down from what they were just a few months ago.

Making Grassley work a little is good for Dems. He's not going to lose but it would be good if Conlin can make it a little closer.

Why? It affects policy if Grassley is challenged a bit from the left. Grassely is someone who actually makes sense, sometimes (when he's not ion one of his "pull the plug on granny knee-jerk rants), and, if he has to muck it out with a reasonably progressive Dem, with some moderates abandoning him, he may be willing to work with Dems more on bills of mutual interest to both parties, which is all I ask for from Republicans.

When will there be a new NH, NC and IL? This race isn't going to be very interesting.

GOP hold.

Doesn't look like any of these three Democratic candidates are even well known among anyone.
