Democrat Mike Franken, who is challenging Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, released a poll that says the incumbent’s lead is just four points, with eight percent of voters undecided.

The survey was conducted Sept. 3-8 and included a total of 1,143 likely voters who were interviewed online. The survey has a margin of error of three percentage points.

The poll claims Grassley has 48 percent while Franken is at 44 percent. In July, Franken trailed by five points.

According to the poll, 57 percent of voters said they view Joe Biden unfavorably. Fifty-six percent have an unfavorable view of the Democrat Party. But only 23 percent hold an unfavorable view of Franken, according to the poll.

C.J. Petersen, Franken for Iowa’s communications director, said the poll shows Iowans are ready to move on from Grassley and that momentum resides with Franken.

“As Senator Grassley continually sides with his party leaders and the special interest groups that line his campaign accounts to block legislation to lower drug prices, oppose efforts to cap the price of insulin at $35/month, and support extreme laws that take away women’s freedom and ban abortion with no exceptions, more and more Iowans are looking for fresh leadership. And they’re finding it with Admiral Franken and his commitment to put country over party and people over politics,” Petersen said.


  1. What a nut. He is depending on people who think government can make wishes come true. Capping prices always leads to shortages. If capping prices is such a great idea, why not make everything free? Oh, wait, that’s what the Democrats promise.
