Iowa In The Bag for Republicans?

Post  News Hawk on Fri Oct 24, 2014 7:57 pm

Early voting is looking good for Iowa Republican Joni Ernst. In fact, it’s looking better than usual.

Kirsten Hunter of the Washington Free Beacon reports that even CNN is acknowledging the trend:


CNN: Iowa Early Vote Data Shows Unprecedented Republican Numbers

Elated Republicans are celebrating the unprecedented success of U.S. Senate candidate Joni Ernst (R) in Iowa’s early voting.

Iowa Republicans banked a surge of early voters this week, a practice usually dominated by Democrats in the state.

Ernst’s unprecedented success is also the result of her opponent, Rep. Bruce Braley’s, failure to mobilize Iowa Democrats despite receiving support from high-profile figures including the Clintons and the seat’s current holder, Sen. Tom Harkin (D., Iowa).

“Braley hasn’t run a great campaign,” said CNN reporter Peter Hamby. “Look at the early vote numbers in that state. Democrats in the last two or three cycles have really done well by running up the early vote number.”

Hamby elaborated that Republicans are at a “parity” with Democrats after assessing this week’s early Republican votes.

This “has never happened before,” Hamby said. “Braley wants that number to be higher.”

Here’s the video segment:
