An Emerson survey found that people in Iowa preferred former President Donald Trump over former President Joe Biden by 8 points in a possible presidential election contest in 2024.
According to the study, 47% of people would choose Trump in 2024 as opposed to 39% who would back Biden. The poll also reveals that 38% of respondents would still back Trump in 2024 regardless of the FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago. However, 28% indicated they are less inclined to support the former president as a result of the raid, while 34% said they are more likely to.
In Iowa, 56% of voters disapprove of Biden’s job performance, compared to 34% who approve and 10% who are indifferent.
In terms of topics, 45% of Iowa voters rank the economy as the most crucial one, with dangers to democracy coming in second with 17%, access to abortion with 12%, healthcare with 7%, and immigration with 7%.
“Republican [Sen. Chuck] Grassley [of Iowa] wins the vote by 61 points, and Republican [incumbent Gov. Kim] Reynolds wins by 69 points, according to those who rank the economy as their top concern. In contrast, those who cite dangers to democracy as their top concern support [Democratic Senate candidate Michael] Franken by 57 points and [Democratic candidate for governor of Iowa Deidre] DeJear by 50 points, respectively “Spencer Kimball, director of the Emerson College Poll, stated.
With regard to the midterm elections, Grassley leads Franken by 11 points, 49% to 38%, for the Senate. 53% of Iowans favor Reynolds for governor, compared to 36% who support DeJear.
From October 2 to October 4, a poll was taken. There were 959 probable Iowa voters in the sample. Plus or minus 3.1% was the error margin.
