Iowa is a 2020 Battleground State in Federal Races

June 25, 2020

Many Iowans feel we have done our part in presidential selection when the Iowa caucuses conclude. Not so this year. Iowa can expect to be a top battleground state for federal elections for president, U.S. Senate and U.S. House of Representatives. Recent polling shows President Trump and former Vice President Biden in a statistical dead heat. The same goes for Sen. Joni Ernst and her challenger Theresa Greenfield in that race as their polling is within the margin of error. With primaries to select candidates for congressional seats concluded, those races are shaping up and polling data should be available soon. Iowa's purple state reputation will make all of these races close. Look for updates on those races in this space as head-to-head polling becomes available.
