“Trump appears to be more popular in Iowa now than he was in office,” said Eric Hanson, an analyst for CBS Des Moines affiliate KCCI, citing a new Des Moines Register/MediaCom poll which found that Mr. Trump has a 53% favorability rating among all Iowans.

” One Cedar Rapids Republican poll respondent said that he regards Trump very favorably, because he doesn’t behave like a typical politician. He said that he believed the country’s current situation was very dire and that Trump would be able fix it faster than any other politician.” Mr. Hanson stated in his report.

Only 31% of Iowans approve of the job President Biden is doing in the aforementioned poll.

This is not the only negative poll out there. Polls by NBC News/Washington Post and the Associated Press found that Mr. Biden has received less popular than expected reviews in recent polls.

There’s always intrigue. The former Vice President Mike Pence will also be visiting Iowa this year. He will appear at an event hosted by Young America’s Foundation at the University of Iowa in Iowa City on Nov. 1.


A veteran Republican observer asks a pertinent question regarding President Biden .

“Why did Biden give in to the left?” asked Karl Rove ,, who was an advisor for former President George W. Bush , and wrote a column to The Wall Street Journal.

” There are three explanations. The first is that the Democratic Establishment is exhausted. He wrote that the Democratic traditional leadership may have lost its energy, ideas and self-confidence after the presidencies Bill Clinton as well as Barack Obama , and the defeat by Hillary Clinton ,.

“Extremists now control the Democratic Party,” Mr. Rove stated, and Mr. Biden “bows” to them.

” Another explanation is that traditional Democrats fear their left-wing base. This is large enough to win primaries, deep-blue congressional district districts and even the presidential election, but not in purple or red territory. The columnist said that this may explain why so many Democrats are retiring from Congress in swing districts.

“Another explanation is that Mr. Biden, after eight years of being ignored, marginalized and treated as a lovable goofus in the Obama White House, likes to be cheered by Democrats as the potentially most transformative president since FDR,” said he.


Mark Zandi of Moody’s Analytics — billed as “President Biden‘s favorite economist” by the Republican Party — has figured out that households earning the U.S. median annual income of $70,000 are paying $175 more per month due to the rising cost of food, fuel, and housing since Mr. Biden took office.

“Moral to the story,” says Tommy Pigott , rapid-response director for the Republican National Committee. “If you think that you don’t have to pay for Biden’s reckless socialist spending sprees, you are wrong. You are actually already paying .”


” The GOP is now considered the better party for security and prosperity,” according to a Gallup report. It was published Wednesday.

“Americans by significant margins now view the Republican Party as better than the Democratic Party at protecting the nation from international threats (54% to 39%, respectively) and at ensuring the nation remains prosperous (50% to 41%),” wrote Gallup analyst Jeffrey M. Jones.

He goes on to note that “the 15-percentage-point GOP advantage on security matters is its largest since 2015, while its nine-point edge on prosperity is its largest since 2014.”

“By 41% to 38%, U.S. adults say the Republican Party rather than the Democratic Party can better handle whichever problem they name (in an open-ended question format) as the most important facing the country,” Mr. Jones wrote, also citing emerging support from independents.

“Since last year, there have been double-digit declines in the percentages of independents who say the Democratic Party is better at handling the most important problem (from 42% to 31%), at keeping the nation secure (from 43% to 31%) and at keeping the nation prosperous (from 47% to 35%),” Mr. Jones said.

The Republican Party has enjoyed an eight-percentage point increase among independents in keeping the country prosperous (from 43% to 51%), and five-percentage point increase for keeping the nation secure (from 48% to 53%).

The Gallup poll of 1,005 U.S. adults was conducted Sept. 1-17 and released Wednesday.
