THE IOWA BAROMETER
And the parade of poll numbers continues. President Trump still has the affection of Iowa Republicans. A Des Moines Register poll of 400 registered Iowa Republican voters reveals all.
It finds that 82 percent view Mr. Trump favorably while 81 percent approve of the job he is doing. A civility factor has also emerged, however. Another 90 percent hope Mr. Trump runs a positive re-election campaign, “focusing on the good things he’s done for the country.”
The poll also noted this: “Just 4 percent want him to focus on attacking opponents — one of the president’s trademarks.”
On the other hand, should the president stay mum if first attacked by a political rival? That should be the next question, perhaps.
