Iowa's incumbent Dem governor polls at 38 percent 

It's no surprise that Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, leads his Democratic opponent by 13 points in the latest Rasmussen poll. But who could have expected that Iowa's Democratic governor, Chet Culver, would be trailing former Gov. Terry Branstad, R, by an even larger margin?


With the Iowa Republican Primary just five weeks away, former GOP Governor Terry Branstad still attracts much more support than either of his party rivals in the race against current Democratic Governor Chet Culver.

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey shows Branstad with 53% support from likely Iowa voters to Culver's 38%. That’s a two-point increase in support for Culver since March and his highest level of support against Branstad since Rasmussen Reports began polling voters about the gubernatorial race last September. But only three percent (3%) of voters remain undecided, while six percent (6%) prefer another candidate.
