What's noteworthy is that Ernst is underperforming Trump here.

For once you make perfect sense. Considering that Greenfield still most likely has considerably less name recognition than Ernst, this is a great poll for Democrats. I'm very glad to have another IA poll in general.

Lean R, this is more competitive that Atlas admits, but Ernst is still an undeniable favorite, and this is way closer to Likely than tossup. Honestly, Iíd prefer that Democrats donít invest too much here, as this one is basically a reach race.

Is it possible there are some state-specific COVID-related shift here that isn't purely attributable to the national environment?  Reynolds has one of the lower gubernatorial approval ratings on COVID in that big nationwide Harvard study and I wonder if that's knocking Trump/Ernst down a few points from where they would be otherwise.

I still think Ernst is favored but I'd love to be wrong here. If this does prove to be competitive it could be the last democratic senator from IA in a while. From what I've heard once Grassley retires his grandson might try to replace him. I feel like the name alone would make him a shoe in.

She has a 37% approval rating. I wouldn't call that an 'undeniable favorite' in any sense of the word

Dems control 3/4 Congressional districts in IA, and JD Scholten can beat King due to Southern strategy remarks. It's time for Dems to stop acting like IA is MO and OH is IN and FL is WVa. Dems won all three states in 92, 96, 08 and 12, and can win them again

I think I'm ready to move this race to Lean R. Still an uphill climb, though.

I'm not sure I buy the race being this close, but COVID season has been bad for pretty much everyone in remotely competitive GOP seats. I don't necessarily think this is as safe as Atlas likes to think it is, but recruiting failure and political trends still make this an unlikely get.

To which I add by saying that I fervently hope I'm wrong and PPP is right.

I mean that it's not Likely/Safe R, and it is competitive, but at the same time it's Lean R, and Ernst is a definite favorite, just not an overwhelming one.

I seem to remember Ernst only leading by a point or two the weekend before the 2014 election and look how that story ends. Also didnít Hubble lead most gubernatorial polls?

Ernst is still definitely favored here, and I doubt this gets too interesting barring a wave, but the fact that sheís underperforming Trump (even if just barely) doesnít suggest sheís headed for a 20-point win. Iíd say sheís probably going to win by about her 2014 margin. Likely R, not the most promising race for Democrats, but not completely safe for Ernst.

This also shows Trump leading Biden by just 2. If Greenfield canít lead in a poll which has Trump close to tied with Biden in IA...

The sample is Trump +9 according to 2016 vote, so it's probably close to the current state of the race.

It's a PPP Poll. I am getting sick and tired about their "Agenda Polling" to boost Democrats. Thumpsdown!

If Ernst is only at 42% in a poll Trump is leading (and the sample is the same as the 2016 vote), that is....not a great sign. It's still only one poll, but I don't really think this is Safe R.

IA isnt safe R, it tilts R, just like PA tilts D or MI or WI. Rs have to watch OH, IA and FL just like Dems have to watch out for PA/MI and WI. In the world after COVID 19, anything can happen, just like Bush W upset John Kerry after 911

Yes, Republicans did better in their 2014 wave than polls predicted. I wouldnít count on that in 2020 although who knows.

Obama was at 44 percent and the unemployment was like 7 percent, but it was on the downswing.

Trump had 3.5 percent and never been above 44 and 20 percent unemployment
