Public Policy Polling: President Obama is beating Mitt Romney by 10 points, 51% to 41% in Iowa:
The reason for Obama’s enhanced standing in the state is pretty simple- over the last six months he’s become more popular and Romney’s become less popular. Obama was under water at a 43/52 approval spread, now he’s on narrowly positive ground at 49/46. The most noteworthy shift has come with independents, who he’s gone from 37/54 to 52/41 with.
Romney meanwhile remains incredibly unpopular in Iowa with only 34% of voters rating him favorably to 56% with an unfavorable opinion. He used to have a decent amount of crossover appeal to Democrats with a 17/72 spread, but that’s now worsened to 9/86. And with independents he’s at an atrocious 28/59.
“Atrocious.” Yep, that pretty much sums Willard up.
