Braley Leads All Potential Challengers In Iowa Senate Race   Leave a comment

For all the brouhaha over Democratic Rep. Bruce Braley’s self-inflicted comments recently in the Hawkeye State, it apparently hasn’t hurt him with voters as much as it could have

A new Suffolk University poll in Iowa finds Rep. Bruce Braley (D-IA) leads all five potential Republican opponents by between 6 and 13 points.(Political Wire)

Here were the Suffolk University numbers….

  • vs. radio host Sam Clovis: 38-25 percent (35% undecided)
  • vs. St.Sen. Joni Ernst: 37-30 percent (31% undecided)
  • vs. former Reliant Energy CEO Mark Jacobs: 37-31 percent(30% undecided)
  • vs. businessman Scott Schaben: 38-25 percent (36% undecided)
  • vs. former U.S. Atty. Matthew Whitaker: 36-31 percent (31% undecided)

At the moment – if I had to gauge a prediction for now – I’d gauge this race as a Lean Democratic race, if for no other reason than the continuing fallout over Rep. Braley’s ill-timed remarks of a few weeks ago…then again, given some of the remarks we’ve heard from a few of Iowa’s resident Republicans, he could probably pull an Edwin Edwards and still win this November…
